Take in the scenery and wildlife
Enjoy the library and a dram.

The Library and the Lodge at Strathaird are two stunning holiday homes off the road towards Elgol and have wonderful views across Loch Slapin and towards the famous Black Cuillin. Both have uniquely beautiful period features and all the peace and quiet you could ever wish for.

  • A wonderfully scenic winter stay in a well equipped spacious and welcoming house. which makes it so easy to feel at home. Particularly enjoyed watching the morning sun on the hills behind followed by exploring the area on foot and in the evening relaxing in front of that log fire in the library 
    Great location for all the delights of Skye .

  • Classic, classy, characterful and complete, beautifully appointed, tasteful interiors combining with the dramatic views to  Blaven and the Cuilins make for an unforgettable stay. Tucked away in a most secluded yet accessible corner of Skye. A perfect blend of comfort and drama.
