Entrance Vestibule, Hallway, Lounge/Dining Room, Kitchen, Cloakroom, Rear Porch, Bathroom, Four Bedrooms, Utility Room

EXTERNAL: Integral Double Garage, Boathouse, Shed, WC, Garden Grounds of 1.48 acres (to be confirmed by title plan).

The Duirnish Peninsula is located in the north west of the island and is arguably one of Skye’s most scenic areas, a craggy wild area of natural beauty stretching to the west from Dunvegan. Home to the Colbost Croft Museum and internationally acclaimed The Three Chimneys Restaurant, the landscape is often dominated by the flat-topped ‘MacLeod’s Tables’. It is an ideal location for outdoor pursuits with a wealth of beautiful inland and coastal walks from which to view an abundance of wildlife and birds.

From Skinidin the nearest main village is Dunvegan which is approximately 5 miles away and here you will find a good range of local amenities and the historic Dunvegan Castle. There is also a local shop, post office and cafe at Glendale, 3 miles away. The island’s capital Portree is approximately 26 miles away and a greater range of amenities can be found here. The Three Chimneys Restaurant is approximately 100m from the property.

17 Skinidin, whilst of non-traditional construction and requiring complete renovation, offers a fantastic development opportunity. Stunningly located on the shores of Loch Dunvegan in generous enclosed garden grounds of 1.48 acres this spacious property offers the rare opportunity to acquire a spacious shore side home. An alternative option would be to remove the existing property and build within the garden grounds which offer the potential for two house sites (subject to the usual planning consents being obtained). There is also further potential to develop the existing boathouse.
