Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 7
Carbost, Isle of Skye, The Hebrides, Scotland
Arnaval is capable of sleeping 7 people in 3 double rooms and 1 single room. Our house is in a peaceful coastal environment with Fiscavaig bay a few minutes from the house. Arnaval is an ideal base to explore the island or to come back to in the evening after a day walking the Cuillin, a view of which can be seen from the front sitting-room window. Arnaval is open until 1st week in September 2018.
The Isle-of-Skye is world famous for its scenic views, mountain climbing in the Cuillin, Kinloch Lodge and the Three Chimneys for excellent cuisine and many more making a name for themselves. Boat trips can be taken from many places on Skye, a good day out is to Loch Coruisk made famous the watercolourist J M W Turner or to the distillery where Talisker Single Malt Whisky is produced, close at hand in the village of Carbost.

About the neighbourhood
All the cottages owned by Isle-of-Skye Holiday Cottages are in the area of Skye known as Minginish, this peninsula is surrounded by sea and the mountain range of the Cuillin. The sea-lochs are Loch Harport, which opens to Loch Bracadale, Loch Eynort and Loch Scavaig, they have spectacular sea-cliffs which can be only appreciated from the water, so, if you have a kayak take it with you. The Cuillin Hills form part of the border to the area of Stathaird and must be one of the untamed areas of Britain.
