Fir Chlis is a self contained apartment which is perfect for those who enjoy the luxury of a hotel and the freedom of self catering. It is ideal for couples who are more adventurous and enjoy outdoor pursuits, as well as those who just want to relax and get away from it all.
The apartment is located in the quiet Hamlet of Ullinish and has uninterrupted views towards Loch Brachadale, the majestic Cuillin hills and Oronsay Island. To the rear of the land, one can enjoy views towards the western isles and Macleods Tables. Dunvegan is only 8 miles away.
The varied wildlife in the area include white tailed see eagles, hen harriers, golden eagles, buzzards, kestrels, owls and a vast array of other garden birds. Most of these are attracted to the land because of the abundance of small mammals in the area and the well stocked bird feeders. Other wildlife that can be seen in the area includes dolphins, porpoise and otters.
Within a 20 minute drive of the property you will find the world famous Three chimneys restaurant, Talisker distillery, Talisker bay, Glen Brittle, Sligachan, Portree, Dunvegan Castle, Coral Beach, the Stein Inn and numerous other pubs, restaurants and shops.
All areas of Skye can easily be reached from this central location and for those who are visiting the Cuillin hills, with such a good view from the property, you can gauge what the weather is like at the summit. The owners are happy to check weather forecasts too.
Fir Chlis is the perfect base for you to explore the rest of Skye and the west coast of Scotland.
Set amongst 2 acres of natural grass land, this truly is a place to enjoy wildlife and nature from the comfort of the apartment, through the full height picture window.
Within walking distance of the property you will find The Ullinish Country Lodge Hotel, Oronsay Island (Tidal), ancient Souterrain and Dun Beag. Struan Village is also within walking distance where you will find a post office, shop, Coffee shop/Book shop and Cioch Direct.
Whilst being attached to the owners accommodation, the property maintains a private feel with its own entrance, parking space and garden/BBQ area.
The apartment is finished to a high standard with solid oak and Jerusalem limestone flooring, oak doors and mahogany picture window.
