For over a hundred and twenty years this imposing house has stood in a walled garden at the north end of Skye. A former manse, it has been sympathetically restored and, whilst decorated and finished to a high standard, still retains the atmosphere of a family home.
Located just four miles from Uig and the ferry terminal to the Western isles, Kilmuir house is ideally sited to explore the Trotternish Peninsular, Portree, Staffin and the many amazing landscapes, villages and attractions on the Isle of Skye.
The house faces south west and enjoys magnificent views across Loch Snizort and the Minch to the Outer Hebrides; on clear days, we can see the ferry leaving Harris, almost two hours sailing time away.
The famous Hebridean sunsets can be viewed in all their glory from the guests’ sitting room and sea facing bedroom.
Both the rooms are light, spacious, high-ceilinged, furnished with antiques and provided with an interesting and varied selection of books. The upstairs bedroom is a large en suite double with sea-facing views. The ground floor bedroom (once the Minister’s study) overlooks the attractive garden. It is a large room with a double and a single bed, and a private bathroom, so can be used as a family room as well as a double or twin room. It can easily accommodate wheelchair users.
For over 35 years, we have entertained visitors from all over the world and judging by the ecstatic comments in the visitors’ book, all have enjoyed their stay! We feature in several visitor guides (through personal recommendation).
What can we say? Perfect.
