Half of 17

Mallaig 9.8 miles. Half of 17 is a superb white stone croft house based in Ardvasar, Scottish Highlands. The property is situated in an elevated position overlooking the magnificent rolling countryside, sea and distant mainland views. An exceptional view right from your bedroom window of a morning! So quiet and peaceful you won't want to leave. Stepping through the door, there is a porch area where you can leave your coats and boots and step through to the spacious sitting room. With its two large sofas, a lovely place to relax after a long day sightseeing and the warming woodburning stove as an added bonus. The open-plan kitchen has a large dining area with seating for four people - the perfect spot to enjoy a home-cooked meal as a family. The kitchen itself is a farmhouse style, with plenty of modern appliance on-hand. Throughout, the property has magnificent white stone walls, showcasing the wonderful character and history. Upstairs, you will find two bedrooms: one double and one twin with a separate family bathroom. Each bedroom has a range of modern furnishings to house all your personal items. While you stay at Half of 17, venture towards Dunscaith Castle, a historic castle situated on the western side of the Sleat peninsula. It overlooks the Loch Eishort, boasting wonderful views. One large attraction for the Isle of Skye are the Fairy Pools. Multiple waterfalls which are seemingly a vibrant blue and green in colour, cascading down into lovely, pools that invite you for a swim. It is also an ideal location to watch wildlife, whales, seals and dolphins - which have been spotted regularly! Plus, there are lovely routes for walkers. Additionally, there are an array of other invigorating activities on offer such as sailing and wild camping. Why not explore the local area and venture to the nearby lighthouse or whilst catching a breath-taking sunset. A real hidden gem: Half of 17 is an excellent property for remote Scottish holidays.
