Our retreat has lovely sea views of Loch Eishort from the comfort of a furnished living room with plenty of seating and natural light. It has off-road parking in a gated garden. Being at the bottom of the village, it has very little through traffic and plenty of wildlife to enjoy. There are sea eagles and birds of prey that nest nearby and can sometimes be seen soaring overhead. The retreat is 4.5 miles from the bustling village of Broadford, where there are shops, a pharmacy, a hospital with A&E department, a post office with ATM machine, eating places, including restaurants and take-away shops, a petrol station, supermarket and buses that can take you to different parts of the island.

It has off-road parking in a gated garden. Being at the bottom of the village, it has very little through traffic and plenty of wildlife to enjoy. There are sea eagles and birds of prey that nest nearby and can sometimes be seen soaring overhead. The retreat is 4.5 miles from the bustling village of Broadford, where there are shops, a pharmacy, a hospital with A&E department, a post office with ATM machine, eating places, including restaurants and take-away shops, a petrol station, supermarket and buses that can take you to different parts of the island. The retreat has an ensuite toilet (with basin) in the double bedroom. The bedroom contains three wardrobes, a vanity unit and bedside tables, with bedside lamps. There is a separate shower room and toilet opposite the second bedroom. The second bedroom is a twin room with 2'3' x 6' single beds, both with good mattresses and furnished suitably for adults or children, with a bedside light. Bookings for 4 guests are based on two adults sharing the double room and two sharing the twin room. If you book for 5 guests, we will leave one set of bedding for the sofa bed, which is 3’9” x 5’3”. The accommodation is not suitable for babies and toddlers and so we cannot accept bookings for very young children. The open plan living room enjoys triple aspect windows with views down to the sea 250 yards away. There is plenty of seating, where you can relax with a book, or enjoy the views. There is a TV and a DVD player (with various DVD titles to watch) and also an iPhone 5 Speaker-dock. The kitchen is fitted with a fridge, microwave and gas oven, toaster, kettle, crockery, wine glasses, utensils, pots, pans and bake and cookware, kitchen scales, an electric hand whisk, egg cups, oven gloves and tea towels, washing up liquid and dish cloths. For a sunny day, there are many beautiful, scenic walks within a short distance from the retreat, including through the village and around the shore. Visitors must be aware of tide changes and it would be best to find out when high tide is if you intend to take a shore walk. Heaste is a perfect base for touring and exploring the Isle of Skye and Wester Ross. After a busy day of hiking or touring you can come home to relax inside or outside in the peaceful, enclosed garden. If you have any other questions about the area, please ask. Please be aware that the retreat is in a crofting village and as such we do not allow pets in the caravan.More

Unique and quiet location. Very clean, tidy and well equipped property. Excellent communication with the hosts. I would not advertise it with two bathrooms, as there were only two toilets and one shower cubicle. The second bedroom would better suit children than tall or large...More

About the neighbourhood
The surrounding area is absolutely serene and if you want an escape from it all while being surrounded by nature, this is the place to come. There are beautiful walks from the caravan and back up on the main road, there are restaurants, shops, cafes and more beautiful scenery. 30 miles up the island, a drive through the Cuillins, in the main town, Portree, you'll find a visitor centre, cinema, more shops and banks and country walks and horse riding, a gym and swimming pool, with steam room and sauna. You will need to check opening times (& showings) for the cinema and swimming pool, but with our wifi you can do that. You can also stay in the wonderfully heated caravan and enjoy the views from the comfortable couch, or outdoor furniture.
Getting around
You will need a car to get around, or a taxi can take you from the train station in Kyle to Heaste, via the supermarket to pick up groceries. Ideally, having a car would be best as there are no shops in Heaste. The nearest shop is the supermarket and 24 hour petrol garage in Broadford, five miles from Heaste Retreat, on the main road.
