The wonderful whitewashed Loch Caroy Place is an idyllic, beautifully appointed holiday home for families or friends wanting to explore the mesmerising Isle of Skye. It enjoys a stunning, remote position near Balmeanach and Loch Caroy in the north of Skye, 14km from the famous Dunvegan Castle, 15km from the majestic Cuillin hills and across the island from its bustling capital Portree. Loch Caroy Place has been brilliantly renovated in 2022 to offer luxury holiday living with gorgeous contemporary features. You will enjoy upside down living, making the most of this dreamy location and its spectacular views.  

The Isle of Skye is a truly magical place, the largest of the Inner Hedbrides and home to some of Scotland’s most iconic and dramatic landscapes. Skye is enchanting, captivating and absolutely fascinating. In the north of Skye, you will be near gorgeous villages including Ose, Bracadale, Struan and further norther, Edinbane. Balmeanach is ideally located to explore Skye’s three northerly peninsulas, Trotternish, Waternish and Durinish, which between them offer some of the finest dining in Skye. Portree is 24 km away. With the island only being fifty miles long and twenty-five miles wide, you will get the opportunity to see much of the island though. The majestic Cuillin mountain range boasts twelve munros and a fantastic range of scenic walks. Loch Caroy Place is perfect for guests that want to laze or walk on sandy beaches, dive, sail, surf, canoe, cycle, hike, play golf, eat well or just explore this astonishing island.

Loch Caroy Place is built on two levels, surrounded by a garden, terrace and plenty of parking space. Under a vaulted ceiling and lofty beams, the living space is joyful and absolutely fabulous. It features a contemporary, central, double sided log burning stove that offers warmth and a crackling atmosphere to both the living area and the dining and kitchen areas. The carpeted living area boasts extraordinary windows that offer the most spectacular scenery as well as drowning this dreamy space in brilliant natural light. If you can take your eyes away from the enticing scenery, there is a large television for your entertainment. Next comes another squishy sofa and trendy accent chairs, a space to chat, plan your adventures and enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple. On the other side of the fire is a lovely dining area and a sleek, dazzling white, contemporary kitchen. This offers excellent appliances, stools and another sofa so that the chef in your group always has company. Underfloor heating throughout will keep your toes toasty!

Your chic, effortlessly stylish three bedrooms are downstairs, also with stunning views. The huge master offers a beautifully dressed king-size bed, an immaculate ensuite bathroom and access to a deck. The other two bedrooms also enjoy tasteful decor, luxury linens, attractive soft furnishings and ensuite shower rooms. You will dive deep into shut eye in these luxurious havens after tiring walks exploring Skye.

Outside, you can dine alfresco and watch the sky changing colours. The night stars and the tranquillity are incredible. You will remember your holiday at Loch Caroy Place for a very long time.

Loch Caroy Place enjoys a wonderfully secluded location close to Balmeanach and Loch Caroy in north Skye, 14km from Dunvegan and 24km from Portree.

Dunvegan is great with a good range of shops, cafes, and restaurants. It is famous for its eight-hundred-year-old mythical castle and gardens. You can wander around its impressive gardens, grab a bite to eat in the cafe and catch a boat to see the Loch Dunvegan seal colony. The castle has been home to the Clan MacLeod the whole time. Though it may look like one castle, it is actually six buildings that were built in ten stages. The Keep was built in the mid-14th century and is the oldest part still standing. Dunvegan rests in the sea loch between the Waternish and Durinish peninsulas. There are wonderful walks, fishing, and the Giant MacAskill Museum. North of Dunvegan, the Claigan coral beaches are perfect for picnics and the Dunvegan bakery is a perfect stop for provisions. The town is rich in eateries from quirky cafes to smart restaurants. Not far from Dunvegan is one of Skye’s most famous Michelin-starred restaurants, The Three Chimneys.

The Isle of Skye offers incredible walks and iconic landscapes. The Waternish peninsula is amazing. You can also explore the fabled ‘Garden of Skye’ on the Sleat peninsula, enjoy action-packed fun on Raasay and taste the finest malt whiskies. Skye’s most majestic geological features include the Old Man of Storr, the Quiraing and the Cuillin. The island’s varied habitats mean that you could easily see otters, dolphins, golden eagles, white-tailed sea eagles and puffins. The capital of the island is Portree. Other villages in the north worth a stop are Uig and Staffin. Talisker Bay is lovely with a unique panorama. Basalt cliffs rise dramatically on either side of the bay.

Portree is surrounded by hills, Ben Tianavaig to the south, Suidh Fhinn or Fingal’s Seat to the west and the smaller Ben Chrachaig to the north. Further north is the Old Man of Storr. Portree is only about two hundred years old, originally a fishing village created by the then Lord MacDonald. It is brimming with cafes, restaurants, banks, churches, gift shops, a cinema, a swimming pool, and a tourist information centre. The town hosts numerous annual events such as the Portree Show, the Isle of Skye half marathon and the island’s largest event, the Skye Highland Games. It is very pretty with rows of colourful cottages lining up.

Best Suited For: All Ages

Loch Caroy Place is superb for a family holiday. It is very spacious, enjoys gorgeous views and is totally secluded. There is plenty of space for family games outside.

Skye is absolutely incredible with a rich history, prehistoric sites, brooding castles and dramatic scenery. If you do take a little one, you may want to visit Staffin’s Dinosaur Museum or go hunting for dinosaur prints around the island.

The mystical Faerie Glen is a delightful miniature landscape of grassy, cone shaped hills with walking paths. You turn right off the main road from Portree, just before Uig and the strangely shaped, Tolkienesque hillocks are impossible to miss as the road winds its way through the centre of Faerie Glen. It is a perfect place to picnic, perhaps by the stone circle and brook.

The island is blessed with beautiful, peaceful beaches including Coral Beach, Redpoint Beach, Gairloch Beach, Firemore Beach and Applecross Beach. Boat trips are popular including Calums Plockton Seal Trips who take you on one-hour safaris to spot seals, dolphins and porpoises. You will also see much wildlife on a Misty Isle Boat Trip. If you are lucky, you might spot basking sharks, Minky whales and the rare sunfish. In the sky, you might spot golden eagles, oyster catchers and buzzards.

Armadale Castle and Grounds offer twenty thousand acres of stunning grounds with the castle ruins being surrounded by a forty-acre woodland garden. You will discover The Museum of the Isles with six galleries and a children’s trail. This takes you through one thousand five hundred years of history. There are many nature trails taking you beyond the elegant gardens into beautiful woodlands. There is a guided treasure hunt for children.
