This deceptively large and spacious 5 bedroom property is located in the centre of Idrigill and just a short distance from the ferry port of Uig.
The property was built in 2004 to a high standard with large and well proportioned rooms. This delightful property is presented in walk in condition and is neutrally decorated throughout.
Accommodation within the property includes a large sitting room, spacious family room, large kitchen, dining room, 5 double bedrooms (3 en-suite), family bathroom and large open plan landing area. There is also a large double garage with a loft room above all of which could be converted to provide additional accommodation subject to any necessary planning consent.
The property benefits from oil fired central heating and UPVC double glazing.
The property would make a substantial family home but offers the potential for use as a substantial B&B taking full advantage of its location close to the ferry terminal in Uig – the gateway to the Outer Isles.
In addition to the decrofted garden area is a further 2 acres or thereby (to be confirmed by title deed) of owner occupied croft land.
This property must be viewed to fully appreciate the spacious accommodation on offer and the potential for further expansion.
Uig is the main ferry terminus with regular sailings to the outer isles of Harris & Lewis via Tarbert and the Uists’ via Lochmaddy. Local services include a general store, petrol station, pub, bakery, primary schooling and the local Skye Brewery. Secondary education is provided in Portree, some 18 miles to the south, together with all the facilities you would expect of a modern town (although known as ‘the village’) including supermarkets, shops, banks, cottage hospital, swimming pool and library.
With its ferry links, Uig benefits from a daily bus service to Portree with onward links to the mainland.
On a clear day, with uninterrupted views across Uig Bay you may catch sight of a seal or even the occasional dolphin. If you are particularly lucky you may even catch a glimpse of the resident Sea Eagles and Golden Eagles – binoculars at the ready!
It is also only a short distance to the heart of the Quiraing and the Trotternish Ridge and only a short drive to the north you have the ruinous Duntulm Castle.
