Sound View is in the crofting township of Ferindonald on the Sleat peninsula, known as the garden of Skye due to its more hospitable climate and gentler landscape than the more rugged north of the island. 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 on an elevated site with spectacular views towards the Sound Of Sleat and Knoydart beyond.The Isle of Skye is the best known of the Inner Hebridean islands off the west coast of Scotland. 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 unspoilt and beautiful surroundings.Sound View is within walking distance of the local primary school, a doctor’s surgery and the beach, with nearby Armadale, with the ferry link to Mallaig on the mainland, having a general store and petrol station.Broadford, a 20 minutes’ drive away 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 Highland Capital Inverness is about a 2 1/2 hours’ drive away and has all the facilities of a modern city including an airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.Sound View offers well-presented, contemporary accommodation, thoughtfully designed to take advantage of the views over the Sound of Sleat towards Knoydart on the mainland. The property is highly energy efficient being an ICF (insulated concrete formwork) build, an eco-friendly modern method of construction producing highly energy efficient buildings which require minimal maintenance and repair. The use of glazing maximises 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 of the accommodation and the location means that Sound View has potential to be run as a bed and breakfast.
