Half Seventeen is a traditional stone built crofthouse in the township of Aird, which is a small, scattered community near Armadale on the Sleat peninsula. The four mile drive from the ferry terminal to the cottage is one of the most scenic on the island, with far-reaching views which take in the Sound of Sleat, the island of Eigg and the beautiful mountains on the Knoydart peninsula.
Wildlife abounds in the area... deer, otters and numerous species of birds, including golden eagles, are resident here and there is always a chance of spotting dolphins, whales or even a basking shark as Half Seventeen is set high up overlooking the sea. And it's peaceful... soooo peaceful...
It is possible to walk down to the sea-shore from the cottage, if you don't mind a bit of a scramble, or if you prefer to really stretch your legs, there is a superb walk along a track to the Point of Sleat where views to the Cuillin mountains and the isles of Eigg, Rum and Canna are magnificent on a clear day, and at the end of the track is Camas Daraich, a beautiful white sandy beach.
If you are looking to hire a traditional island cottage, in a visually stunning and peaceful location on the Isle of Skye, then look no further.
