Formerly the dower house for the nearby Dunvegan Castle, this beautiful 18th-century property has been sympathetically refurbished and stylishly decorated. It also retains plenty of original features including wooden floors and antique furniture which is juxtaposed with some fascinating examples of modern art. You may spend much of the time in the bright and cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, but the house also has several other charming living spaces to explore including a snug and library.
Stepping into this delightful house you will soon find the wonderful main living space which comprises a kitchen, diner and lounge. The farmhouse-style kitchen and dining area is an ideal space to prepare and share a fabulous family meal, and is equipped with everything you may need including a four-oven AGA and a large dining table, perfect for the whole family to sit round and chat late into the night. The lounge is a lovely place to relax in, with plenty of seating and a traditional wood burner. The ground floor also features a spacious hallway with seats and a baby grand piano, as well as a snug with TV and plenty of seating.
Heading up to the first floor you will find three stylishly decorated and comfortable bedrooms: there are two twin rooms and a double room, each with spectacular views. This floor also offers a family bathroom and a charming open-plan seating area which overlooks the loch. A games room with two extra single beds can be reached via the rear annexe staircase.
The second floor features a beautiful library on the landing, a bathroom, and three further bedrooms: a double room and a twin room with sea views, and a double room looking toward the mountains.
Outside is a fully-enclosed garden with easy access across the paddock to the shoreline which offers wonderful views across the loch to Dunvegan Castle. The property has its own boathouse and you can launch or hire a boat across at Dunvegan Jetty. You can also try your hand at sea fishing or take an RIB boat trip to visit Eigg, Muck and Rhum.
