The property is on an elevated site with spectacular views towards the Sound Of Sleat and Knoydart beyond.

Thomas Jones of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said: “This is a wonderful home, thoughtfully designed with every comfort for modern living. The sitting room is particularly inviting and will no doubt be the heart of the home. The property is ideal as a permanent family home but also has potential for use as a holiday let, if desired.

“The Sleat peninsula is one of the most attractive locations on the island, known as the garden of Skye due to its more hospitable climate and gentler landscape than the more rugged north of the island. The purchaser will be able to enjoy a superb Hebridean lifestyle, yet within easy reach of all amenities.”

The property is highly energy efficient, while the extensive glazing will maximise solar gain, and the majority of the rooms are double aspect, resulting in a light-filled interior. With all four bedrooms having en-suite facilities, the layout and the location means that Sound View has potential to be run as a bed and breakfast. The sitting room has a double-height ceiling with mezzanine landing and a floor-to-ceiling picture window, making the most of the beautiful outlooks.

Outside there is an easily maintained garden with a substantial outbuilding.

Sound View is in the crofting township of Ferindonald on the Sleat peninsula. This area with its many coastal and forestry trails, small islands and inlets, makes an ideal location for walking, mountain biking, kayaking and sailing, and is rich in wildlife with otters, golden eagles, red deer and dolphins regularly spotted.

The property is within walking distance of the local primary school, a doctor’s surgery and the beach, while nearby Armadale has a general store and petrol station. Armadale also has the ferry link to Mallaig on the mainland

Broadford, around 20 minutes by car, has a good range of shops and facilities including a supermarket while a wider range of amenities and a secondary school are available in Portree, about thirty nine miles away.

The Isle of Skye is the best known of the Inner Hebridean islands. Famous for its romantic, historical associations and magnificent landscape dominated by the Cuillin Mountains, the island is very popular, attracting many tourists throughout the year as well as those who seek to enjoy a peaceful lifestyle in beautiful surroundings.
