No 22 Fasach is a charming, extended and renovated cottage in the scattered hamlet of Fasach on the Duirinish peninsula on Skye. This north-west corner of the island forms part of the Glendale community-owned estate www.glendaleskye.com covering an area of outstanding natural beauty. The cottage, which sits in grounds of approximately 6 acres, is in a spectacular setting and from its elevated site has beautiful views over Loch Pooltiel to the Outer Herbrides, the Uists and Benbecula. The cottage has been a successful year round holiday let for the last 12 years with www.unique-cottages.co.uk, achieving excellent occupancy rates with many repeat bookings. Letting income is available on request.
The current owners have sensitively modernised the cottage to create comfortable and well-appointed accommodation in keeping with the style of property. The winter sitting room with its wood burning stove and the dining room are in the original croft cottage, while the bright and spacious triple aspect sitting room extension takes advantage of the far reaching views. The kitchen and bathroom have modern fittings and the utility porch also doubles as a boot room. There are two attractive double bedrooms on the first floor along with a single bedroom/office.
The land at 22 Fasach extends to approximately 6.2 acres and is currently let on a grazing licence. As well as livestock grazing, the land provides privacy and amenity, and a habitat for a wide range of flora and fauna. Wildlife is often seen from the cottage, while there is excellent bird-watching on the sea cliffs and shore and regular sightings of whales, porpoises and dolphins from Neist Point.
