Property description

Tenure: Freehold

No 75 Aird Bernisdale lies in the scattered crofting township of Bernisdale close to Portree on the Isle of Skye. The property is in an exceptional setting, on a narrow promontory between Loch Snizort to the west and Loch Treaslane to the east and with coastal walks along both shorelines directly from the house.

The Isle of Skye is probably the best known of the Inner Hebridean islands off the west coast of Scotland. Famous for its romantic, historical associations and magnificent landscape dominated by the Cuillin mountains, the island is very popular attracting many tourists throughout the year as well as those who seek to enjoy a peaceful lifestyle in unspoilt surroundings.

The area is an ideal base from which to enjoy the island with many outdoor leisure pursuits available locally including hill walking, climbing, canoeing, sailing, mountain biking, and fishing. The unspoilt countryside provides a habitat for native wildlife with regular sightings of red deer, seals, otters and birds of prey, including buzzards, golden eagles, and sea eagles.

No 75 Aird Bernisdale is a modern family home, designed and positioned to sit comfortably in the landscape and take advantage of the beautiful views to Loch Snizort. Built in a traditional style, this Skye Homes house has a white rendered exterior, slate roof, and astragal windows combined with modern building techniques including excellent insulation, double glazing and the benefits of solar gain.

Originally conceived and run as a 5* B&B with three letting bedrooms, in 2017 the property was converted to create a three bedroom house with a one bedroom, luxury self-contained cottage, named The Spoons Over the years, the property has featured in the travel sections of many magazines and newspapers for its exceptional standard of accommodation in a stunning setting. These publications include Conde Nast Traveller, Elle Magazine Travel Section, The Michelin Guide and The Times.

The main house is beautiful, with high quality finishes and well-proportioned rooms, while careful use of colour reflects the landscape and creates an exquisite interior. The ground floor has a generous hall leading to the semi-open plan dining room and sitting room; an en suite bedroom; and the spacious contemporary kitchen with an adjacent utility room. On the first floor there are two en suite bedrooms and a fourth bedroom or study, while a walk-in cupboard on the landing disguises an interconnecting door to the letting annexe.

The letting annexe has outstanding accommodation, its entrance porch with cloakroom leading to an open plan living/kitchen/dining room on the ground floor with a stunning first floor bedroom with beautifully appointed en suite bathroom.

No 75 Aird Arninsdale is a tenanted croft of approximately 7.24 acres lying adjacent to the decrofted house and grounds. The croft, which extends to the shores of Loch Treaslane, comprises grazing land enclosed by post and wire fencing. The land is grazed by a small flock of Hebridean sheep and there are two hen houses with runs.

There are the remains of a stone dwelling within the croft which offer the potential for development, subject to the necessary consents.

Purchasers of the croft tenancy will have to satisfy the Crofting Commission as to their suitability as tenants. Further information is available from the Crofting Comission
