The property is in a spectacular setting, its grounds extending to the shores of Loch Beag and with stunning water and mountain views. 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. There are many outdoor leisure pursuits available locally including hill walking, climbing, canoeing, sailing, mountain biking, and fishing, while unspoilt countryside provides a habitat for native wildlife with regular sightings of red deer, seals, otters and birds of prey.Portree is within easy reach and has a good range of shops and facilities including a secondary school. Inverness, about a two hour drive from the Skye Bridge, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.LOT 1No 1 Balgowan comprises a decrofted house, garden ground and garage. The house, which has well laid out family accommodation, would now benefit from some modernisation. In addition, and subject to the necessary consents, the opportunity exists to replace the Ramsay ladder to the attic with a staircase to incorporate the first floor rooms into the rest of the house to create four bedroom accommodation.
