I’ve lived in the Highlands of Scotland for 20 years and driven through the Isle of Skye on countless occasions to catch the Calmac ferry over to the Isle of Harris. Breathtaking scenery greets you as you drive the long road that cuts through the Cuillins on the way to towards Uig. Watching fast moving clouds, sun rays breaking through clouds, showers rolling in, the weather changes by the minute on Skye and even just driving through is pretty spectacular. I rarely stop on Skye except for commissions and portrait or wedding shoots as it can be quite busy during the summer. And this is where the winter months come into their own.
Winter is my time to explore and to see the real, quiet Scotland. So I decided that February was the time to stop a while and explore some of the Isle of Skye. I spent hours looking for the right property to rent and stumbled across the Beach House on LHH Website. Everything I love – lots of space, luxurious and also a stones throw from the waters edge. Here’s a 360 view of the House;
The usual excitement of the boys running about the house as we arrived ensued, quickly curtailed by them noticing the pool table. They then proceeded to play pool every single day for hours on end.
The conservatory doors led out directly onto a beach where it was possible to walk in either direction on hill paths leading round the cliffs. The views over to Dun Caan from the conservatory windows were another bonus – I watched beautiful sunsets and sunrises each day from the sofa. I loved every minute of our time on the Isle of Skye in our gorgeous quiet house by the sea.
