Full description

Tenure: Freehold


An immaculately presented modern home with spectacular sea views over Uig Bay. Set in its own grounds, Old Pier Cottage is finished to a high specification built to make the very most of its excellent sea side location. The owners who built the property to their own design in 2011 have thoughtfully left scope for a purchaser to mark their own individuality by, for example, leaving the large floored loft space ready to receive at least two rooms or another creative use! Features in this special home include the large Sun Lounge with its open views over the Bay and garden, the Sitting Room with built in woodburning stove, the convenient "indoor shed" space (a utility/ store area), and the glass panelled reception room at the front door, not forgetting the superbly appointed fitted kitchen. Old Pier Cottage has oil fired under floor heating throughout the ground floor and outside there is a solidly constructed shed too and a large garden laid to lawn.

Immediately off the access road leading to Old Pier Cottage is the foreshore, giving pedestrian access to the sea. The village of Uig (a short walk from the house) has a ferry terminal, public slipway, shops, filling station, cafes, hotels, the Isle of Skye brewery and Uig Pottery. There are also two Churches, a Post Office at the shop and a Community hall. Local nursery and primary school is at Kilmuir, ten minutes north and secondary education is at Portree 15 miles to the south. Portree is the main centre of the Island's population where there are supermarkets, library and medical facilities too. The north end of Skye is becoming increasingly popular with visitors, with many making for the "film set" location of the Quirang and the Old Man of Storr. There are wide open spaces and views to the Outer Hebrides, and for those who want to make a trip across the Minch the ferry is just a stone's throw away - well nearly.
