Burnside Cottage is in the hamlet of Dornie near Kyle of Lochalsh. The property is in a beautiful setting, along a lane of traditional houses and with stunning views over Loch Long and to Eilean Donan Castle.The west coast is famous for its unique coastline of sheltered bays, wide sandy beaches and beautiful island views with a backdrop of dramatic mountain peaks. This area has long been a popular tourist destination with its easy access to Skye and Plockton and its famous landmarks of Eilean Donan Castle and the Five Sisters of Kintail. Yet, just a short distance away from the busy tourist centres, the countryside offers a haven of peace where native wildlife and flora are plentiful and breathtaking views are the norm. Dornie is a charming former fishing village, set at the point where Loch Duich, Loch Alsh and Loch Long meet. The village has a shop, Post Office, popular pub and hotel, while nearby Kyle of Lochalsh, where the bridge crosses to Skye, offers a good range of shops and facilities as well as a railway station. There are a number of options for primary schooling and secondary schooling is available in Plockton. Inverness, about 2 hour’s drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe. The current owner purchased Burnside in 2004 and has recently fully refurbished the property to create very comfortable and easily managed single storey accommodation. The improvements carried out include the installation of a new kitchen, a new electric heating system and complete redecoration.There is an enclosed utility area to the rear and a communal garden at both the side and in front of the cottage. A parking bay across the road provides off-street parking.Burnside Cottage has formerly been both a residential and a successful holiday let.
