Holiday Rental House
The Old Church is perfectly situated to allow easy access to wonderful walks, wildlife & stunning scenery. It is a deceptively large house with flexible accommodation ideally suited to two families or large groups. PETS VERY WELCOME! From the large main lounge there is a fantastic view over Ardvasar Bay & the Sound of Sleat. At the other end of the house there is a kitchen with dining table & additional lounge area looking out over a field that is usually populated with Highland cows & their calves. PLEASE NOTE:- The information on this advert has information about the house after refurbishment in early 2012. It is more up to date than our own website. Thank you. Just along the road there is an excellent hotel/pub/restaurant which is exceptionally friendly.

Just along the road there is an excellent hotel/pub/restaurant which is exceptionally friendly. There is also a small but well stocked shop in the village, both within easy walking distance of the house. There are many local craft shops & galleries around as well as a host of outdoor activities around Skye. The house is just under a mile from the ferry terminal at Armadale making a day trip to the mainland an easy choice. The area around Mallaig & Arisaig is well worth investigating as well as the beautiful SilverSands beach only a couple of miles from Mallaig.More

Additional amenities & feature info
The house is bursting with character with wooden wall panelling, a beautiful oak staircase & some stained glass windows. It is exceptionally well equipped and intended to be a 'home from home' - the only thing we have ever been asked for is a toast rack!! The garden is very pretty and is fully enclosed. There is a selection of garden furniture and also a 'Midgebuster' so the garden can be enjoyed at all times.
