Ruach, Harlosh, Harlosh

Offers over £200000 are invited

Ruach offers an exciting opportunity to acquire a building plot in a stunning location in the scenic township of Harlosh on Skye’s rugged west coast, affording stunning  views over Loch Bracadale towards the Cuillin Mountains and towards MacLeod’s Tables.

Extending to 2 acres or thereby (to be confirmed by title deeds), Ruach, Harlosh is a stunning plot affording panoramic views over Loch Bracadale towards the Cuillin and, from the rear of the plot, to MacLeod’s Tables. The plot is split with approximately 1.5 acres on the township side. The bell mouth access and driveway have been created and this area has a shipping container with electricity connected and a block built shed connected to water and electricity. Both provide dry storage. There is also a natural spring creating a burn and small lochan. Foundations/footings have been installed and have been approved by building control, as has the drainage.

Other completed works will be discussed in detail at a later stage with suitably confirmed interested parties.

The smaller 0.5 acres section leading towards the shore has a small shed with water and electricity connections installed. The burn from the small lochan continues through this lower section to the sea.

Access to both parts of the site is from the quiet township road. Work was started under a previous planning permission and this is evidenced by the existing foundations and other site works.

Further information is available on request from our office in Portree.

The area of Harlosh is situated on the western side of the Island and is made up of a number of smaller townships overlooking the picturesque Lochs Vatten and Bracadale. The nearest village is Dunvegan where you will find a selection of village shops, post office, bars and restaurants, as well as a doctor’s surgery and a primary school. Secondary schooling is available from Portree, the island’s capital some 23 miles away where you will find all the facilities you would expect of a thriving town including supermarket, builders merchants, cinema, good range of shops, hotels, bars, restaurants, secondary schooling and a cottage hospital. This area makes an ideal base for touring, walking or sailing and attracts many visitors throughout the year.


From Portree take the A87 to Dunvegan, then follow the signs onto the Struan Road B855, turn left onto the A863 towards Struan. After about half a mile there is a church on the left and just after this Harlosh is signposted on the right. Follow the road until you reach a cross roads (with bus shelter) and turn left. The road bends around a bungalow and the Ruach site is the next on the left.
