26 Idrigill is a traditional two bedroom former croft house set within private, mature garden grounds in the quiet village of Idrigill overlooking Uig Bay.

The accommodation within is set out over two floors and comprises of: Entrance Porch, Hall, Lounge, Dining Room, Kitchen, Rear Lobby and Store Room on the ground floor with two double bedrooms and a bathroom located on the first floor. The property further benefits from a mix of double and single pane glazing and oil-fired central heating. An original open fireplace in the lounge offers an alternative source of heating. An attached storage shed houses the central heating boiler.

Externally the property is set within fully enclosed mature garden grounds which are mainly laid to lawn with established shrubs and bushes. Parking is available to the side of the property on the gravel driveway. Adjacent to the property is the original house which is currently used as storage. Power and water are connected to and it offers a great conversion opportunity subject to the relevant planning consents. The main house requires a degree of remedial work and modernisation.

On the opposite side of the township road is an additional area of land of approximately 0.72 acres of land (to be confirmed by title deeds).

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 and the local Skye Brewery. The nearest primary school is in Kilmuir and 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. It is also only a short distance to the heart of the Quiraing and the Trotternish Ridge and a short drive to the north you have the ruins of Duntulm Castle.


From Portree take the A87 to Uig. Continue through the village towards the ferry terminus and take a right immediately before the Caledonian MacBrayne offices. Follow the road until you reach a T-junction and turn right. 26 Idrigill is situated on the right hand side.
