Phiddy Robertson of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said:
“The Old Manse is a beautifully presented, attractive and spacious home. The house is filled with natural light and has been sensitively redecorated in keeping with the age of the property.
“The island setting and the beautiful views over the north and south harbour to the hills of Harris beyond, are quite magical. This is a wonderful location to enjoy an excellent quality of life. The house has been run successfully as a B & B during the summer season for several years and there is potential for the purchasers to continue this business if desired. The setting offers great flexibility and lends itself to holiday letting, or simply to enjoy a wonderful lifestyle in this unspoilt Hebridean hideaway.”
The Old Manse has two reception rooms and five bedrooms, all very well presented. There is an attractive enclosed garden that wraps around the house, with mature trees and shrubs, herbaceous borders and wildlife areas. There is a stone shed and a garage with power and light. The plot extends to about 0.33 acres in all.
The Isle of Scalpay is a small island off the east coast of the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides.
It is connected to the Isle of Harris by a bridge, and in the village of Scalpay there is a new Marina, a Community Centre and an award-winning Bistro.
There is a beautiful circular walk that takes in the Eilean Glas lighthouse at the island’s eastern tip, famous not only for being one of the first lighthouses to be built in Scotland, but also for its appearance on an episode of Call The Midwife.
Tarbert, about seven miles away, has schooling up to secondary level, a doctors’ surgery and dentist, grocery stores, post office, and bank and also the ferry terminal for the direct ferry link to the Isle of Skye. Stornoway, roughly an hour’s drive away, has a wider range of shops and facilities along with its airport and ferry terminal to Ullapool.
The property has been a successful seasonal B&B since 2014.
