Croft 41 is a stylish and contemporary house located just six miles from Uig in the small township of Borneskitaig. The property which enjoys views towards the Minch and the Outer Hebrides was designed by the award winning Rural Design architects. Its innovative design and timber construction follows the lines of the traditional barns and steadings that can be found throughout the Highlands.

The property is ideal for those guests looking for something a little different than the traditional houses that are found on the island, and the location an ideal base for exploring.

Tastefully furnished and equipped to a high standard throughout, the accommodation is located over two levels. The downstairs features an open plan living, dining area and kitchen, with floor to ceiling windows, oak flooring and a wood burner.  The kitchen is well equipped with all the usual appliances and has a large dining table for eight. The French doors, with their magnificent views, offer direct access to the garden and decking. Two bedrooms are located on this level, a double and a twin, as is a shower room and utility/boot room.

Two further bedrooms are located on the first floor, the master with a king size bed and a twin, which can be set up as a super king if required. Both bedrooms have combed ceilings with velux windows and enjoy views over the garden and to the Minch and the Outer Hebrides in the distance. A bathroom with a bath and shower over can also be found on this level. All the beds have quality bed linens and throws from the Isle of Skye Weavers.  

Croft 41 has a large enclosed garden with a slide set and wildlife pond, ideal for those guests with children. The garden is also enclosed making it safe for pets and garden furniture is provided.   

Uig (6 miles) offers a selection of small shops, petrol station, local pub, cafe and the ferry terminal to the Outer Hebrides. For a wider selection Portree (20 miles) offers a good range of facilities including a supermarket and various attractions including boat trips.  Being the cultural hub for the island, one of the main attractions in Portree is the award-winning Aros Centre, which runs regular theatre, concerts and film screenings. The centre also provides an exhibition capturing the drama of Skye’s history, an extraordinary RSPB exhibit with live and recorded footage of rare sea eagles along with an audio-visual presentation giving a spectacular aerial view of Skye’s incredible landscapes. 

The surrounding area offers some of the most dramatic scenery on the island, within a short distance the Quiraing, Old Man of Storr, and the spectacular Trotternish Ridge can be found, these are ideal areas for walkers and the awe inspiring peaks a photographers dream. The Skye Museum of Island Life is located in the vicinity and is well worth a visit to see the traditional thatched cottages and the way of life of a bygone age.

For the outdoor enthusiast the quiet country roads are ideal for the cyclist or walker, and just along the road from the property is Camus Mor beach with its small jetty which provides kayak or canoe access. Whitewave, Skye’s outdoor centre, is also located just a few miles away and offers various activities for families and individuals.
