Ardvasar is a pretty village on the Sleat Peninsula only a mile from the ferry terminal at Armadale. There is an excellent hotel within easy walking distance which has a restaurant and also serves bar meals. There is also a local shop which is very well stocked and a post office/garage. There is a small but fascinating mix of shops gathered around the ferry area and an amazing forest walk with an otter hide. Sleat is known as "The Garden of Skye" and it is easy to see why, everywhere is so green compared to the rest of Skye.
The Old Church is a wonderful house bursting with character. It was built in 1895 and converted to a house in the early 1990's. Many of the walls have oak panelling, there is a magnificent picture window in the lounge overlooking the bay and a beautiful oak staircase.

The house has four bedrooms, upstairs there is a king sized room and two further bedrooms which can be used as either twin or king rooms.
