The Boathouse is a self catering house 12 miles from both of the main towns on the island. It sits on the very edge of Loch Sligachan with far reaching views across to the island of Raasay and Apple Cross. It is a very peaceful place for people who are looking for an alternative to cities and nightlife. There are some seasonal Hotels nearby as well as a 9 hole golf course where you can also hire clubs. The Boathouse has regular visits from Otters and Seals and an incredible variety of sea birds. Binoculars are available for your use. The spectacular Cuillin mountains are just a few miles away with waterfall walks with mountain backdrops. We can have the most breath taking sunrises across the loch and occasionally we see the Northern Lights in the Autumn to Spring months. The is a regular passenger and car ferry to the Island of Raasay, which is stunningly beautiful and peaceful and boasts it's own whiskey distillery. It is definitely worth a visit. Skye really can't be seen in 2 days and is so much more than a road trip.
Our nearest neighbours are the Sconser Lodge hotel, where you pre-book a table for their restaurant. They serve freshly dived for Sconser scallops and other locally sourced produce. Three miles further on the A87 you'll come to the Amazing Sligachan Hotel. It has an open restaurant and also an award winning bar where you'll find over 400 different brands os whiskey and also during the summer months they have live music. It's a very warm a friendly bar that also serves fine food, coffee and cake. Half a mile from the Boathouse you can catch the ferry to the Island of Raasay, a 25 minute trip to a stunningly beautiful island with it's own distillery and another beautiful location hotel with restaurant and bar. The hotels are seasonal , so please check they are open for your planned visit
