Single holiday let sleeping up to 8 guests
Uniquely situated amongst some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in Europe The Old Church boasts views so fabulous that they are featured on the cover of a number of guide books.
This spacious luxury property nestles at the foot of the Red Cuillin, which can be ascended from the back door whilst the Black Cuillin (Blaven) dominate the skyline of this spectacular valley. The land throughout this magical valley is largely unfenced being managed by the John Muir Trust and local crofters, meaning exploration in all directions is unhindered; should you wish to climb the stunning peaks or simply discover the hidden waterfalls and varied fauna that fill the area as Hawks and occasionally Golden Eagles circle above. The easily accessible shore line of Loch Slapin is only a minutes stroll away; otters and seals live in the Loch and are frequently spotted by guests. The open shore line next to The Old Church is a popular launching point for sea kayakers and the sheltered nature of the loch make it a perfect spot for both beginners and more experienced paddlers. The Old Church provides a fantastic opportunity to sleep within the shadow of these most stunning of mountains, enjoying and exploring the true wilderness of Skye without ever having to travel.
