Sgarbh Lodge is a traditional croft house, beautifully renovated and located in the small hamlet of Lower Milovaig. The property enjoys panoramic views over Loch Pooltiel and towards the Western Isles. The name pronounced 'Skarrav Lodge' is the gaelic word for cormorant.
The lodge offers spacious accommodation ideal for a family or for a group of friends. The ground floor has a well appointed sitting room with a large corner sofa and other seating, ideally placed to enjoy the views down to the loch. This room also has a large dining table and seating for seven. The first of the bedrooms is located on this level, a twin with an en-suite shower room which again enjoys the views to the loch. To the rear of the property, the large kitchen is located. This is extremely well equipped including a range cooker with double ovens.
On the upper level, three further bedrooms are located, the master with a king size bed and en-suite shower room, a double with an en-suite shower room, and a single bedroom with a shower room adjacent. All the bedrooms are beautifully furnished and have TV's and hairdryers, and quality bed linen and towels are used throughout. Sgarbh Lodge is situated in several acres of open croft land. Beside the house there is a walled garden with a table and benches, an ideal place to sit and soak up the view and the sun on a summers' day.
The nearest town to the property is Dunvegan, which offers a few restaurants, petrol station, shop and local bakery. On the outskirts Dunvegan Castle, home of the Clan MacLeod for the last 800 years, is well worth a visit, as is the pretty coral beaches. Further afield Portree is the main population area on the island, the pretty harbour is particularly striking with its coloured buildings and from here boat trips can be taken. The town has lots of interesting shops selling the best of the local manufacturers and many places for a spot of lunch or refreshment.

The restaurant is owned by Shirley Spear and has won a host of awards and accolades over the last few years and offers the chance to sample the finest of the local ingredients including seafood.
