Welcome to MacKinnon Chalet Five at Ord On the western side of Skye's Sleat peninsular and in the beautiful hamlet of Ord, a wooden, Scandinavian-style chalet is available to let.
Sleat has long been known as the garden of Skye. It is a haven for gorgeous flowers, trees and plants and an area of outstanding natural beauty. Existing residents and visitors include golden eagles, sea eagles, otters, red deer, dolphins, whales, basking sharks and seals.
With its wonderfully pure mountain air, varied terrain and climate, the area is rightly famous among nature-lovers, climbers, walkers, water-sports enthusiasts and sports pilots. Gastronomes will also be delighted with the quality of cuisine served at Sleat's superb restaurants.
