Shiskine is a self catering holiday apartment in the small crofting community of Aultgrishan, 8 miles north of Gairloch, right on the coast, with stunning views over The Minch to the Isle of Skye, The Shiant Isles, and the Isles of Harris and Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. It is entirely self-contained, occupying the first floor of our house, and is accessed via its own separate entrance. It has 2 ensuite bedrooms with king size beds and Egyptian cotton bedding. There is an equipped kitchen, a lounge and dining area, and a large foyer. Plenty of space for 2 people to relax and unwind.
We live on the ground floor of the building and are generally available each day, We will be very happy to help you with anything you might need.
The apartment has absolutely stunning views of the ocean, islands and mountains in every direction. We are very close to a beautiful empty beach although there is a fairly short but steep descent (on grass) at one point . Well worth it though! The area surrounding the apartment is crofting land with sheep and cattle wandering freely. It is a very quiet and tranquil environment with abundant wildlife. If you are looking for peace and quiet, and a place to relax and unwind, then this is it!
