The Bungalow at Aird nestles at the south end of Sleat, 'the garden of Skye', in a traditional cofting community amid some of the most beautiful scenery in the Highlands. There are wonderful views across the Sound of Sleat to the silver sands of Morar, the Isle of Eigg and the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, the most westerly point of mainland Britain. The Bungalow is a modern and cosy home, perched aloft rolling hills, nearby to the sandy beaches of Sleat, walks to challenge the most energetic of visitors as well as a host of first class tourist attractions. Situated some 400 yards from the shore the cottage is an ideal base to explore south Skye and beyond, from the magnificent Cuillin Hills at the island's heart, to the picturesque village of Plockton, 'jewel of the Highlands', and Eilean Donan castle, home of the Clan Macrae and one of Scotland's finest castles.
Skye abounds with wildlife, with otters, seals, dolphins, porpoises, basking sharks and over 240 species of bird-life including the iconic golden and sea eagles. Deer will often be seen roaming the hills, so keep your eyes on land, sea and sky. Many operators offer a variety of wildlife excursions from the thrills and spills of a fast-boat ride across to the Small Isles, to a more leisurely cruise to see the seal colony close to Dunvegan Castle. The world-famous Clan Donald Centre is close by, home to Armadale Castle and Gardens, including the fascinating Museum of the Isles.
Skye can be justifiably proud of a wonderful range of places to eat and drink, with Sleat having 5 traditional hotels and inns close by offering fresh local produce and a choice of local beers and whisky. Aird is just 4 miles from Armadale Pier for the ferry crossing to Mallaig and only 25 miles from the Skye Bridge.
With so many things to see and do Skye is a fabulous place for an island holiday, amid superb scenery that changes with the weather, from rolling hills and moorland to rocky sea-shores and pristine sandy beaches. Come and stay at the Bungalow, we promise you an unforgettable holiday!
