Our holiday home is ideally situated in the iconic village of Glenelg, offering stunning views to the Isle of Skye and the Sound of Sleat. The area is a haven of peace and tranquility. With seasonal ferry links to the Isle of Skye and good road links with the rest of the Highlands, it is the perfect base from which to explore the local and wider area. The Glenelg area is steeped in history with ancient Pictish stone brochs, abandoned barracks built for the Jacobite uprisings and 'Camusfearna', where the author and naturalist Gavin Maxwell wrote his ‘Ring of Bright Water’ series of books. We are close to some very famous Scottish landmarks, examples of which are Eilean Donan Castle, Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle. Glenelg is a wonderful place just waiting to be explored!
