Barnhill is a delight- sympathetically extended to offer a spacious kitchen and third bedroom/summer sitting room. The upstairs is open plan and is flooded with light and is a wonderful addition offering an adaptable space with lovely views. With a further two bedrooms, cosy sitting room, kitchen/dining room and a downstairs bathroom, there is no shortage of space. The original features and traditional layout make it a very flexible and appealing cottage and offers good ceiling height. The addition of the stone outbuildings offers great development potential.
With the holiday letting potential and the possibility of converting the outside byre into additional accommodation, this property has a lot to offer.
Glenelg is a picturesque village which until 200 years ago was the main crossing point to the Isle of Skye. A small ferry still makes the short crossing to Skye and is the only manual turntable commercial ferry in the world. The narrow strait has fierce currents but these make an ideal playground for numerous seals and otters which can easily been seen from the ferry. It is a memorable drive to the ferry on either side with narrow winding roads reaching an impressive elevation on the mainland. The area around Glenelg is a walker’s paradise. You can explore any or all of the Five Sisters of Kintail and for the really ambitious there is the Cluanie Ridge, which takes in no fewer than seven Munros in one long scenic hike. Alternatively, keep a boat moored in the bay at Glenelg and use it to explore the many secret coves and sandy beaches nearby including Sandaig. With great diving, sailing and kayaking opportunities, Glenelg is a haven for the intrepid adventurer.
The famous Glenelg Inn, described by Bill Bryson as an “outpost of comfort and graciousness”, is a mere half mile amble from the cottage and serves as an ideal pit stop to recharge the batteries after a long day exploring.
