Description

Spacious, Georgian town house, with stunning sea views, and garden down to the beach where you can explore the shoreline.

This three-storey, stone Georgian house is in a magnificent seafront location with a garden to the beach, and enjoys wonderful panoramic views over Portree Bay to the Isle of Raasay, the Cuillins and the surrounding hills. It has been decorated, furnished and equipped to a very high standard with period furniture and original works of art. Great attention has been paid to ensure guests can enjoy their holiday to the maximum in a comfortable home from home. All rooms enjoy stunning views over the sea; from your bed, watch the yachts and fishing boats sailing in and out of the bay. It is not unusual to see dolphins and seals and a great variety of birdlife. Children can comb the beach for treasures and crabs! The bay and the local pub were one of the film sets for the popular film ‘Made of Honour’. Dine al fresco in the seafront garden or just relax watching the constantly changing views, or set off on one of several walks around the coastline. Set in a peaceful yet central location, Gleniffer House is just a few minutes’ walk from the charming, quiet town centre with a large selection of shops, many with handcrafted products, pubs and a variety of excellent restaurants serving local produce and seafood. Sea trips - whether it is to see the wide variety of wildlife including the sea eagles, or to fish, - are available on the doorstep. Mountain biking, climbing, horse riding, golf and kayaking are also available. The swimming pool and leisure centre/gym are within walking distance. Skye is the walkers’ and climbers’ paradise, from the Cuillin Mountains to coastal walks. Portree is ideally placed to visit all parts of the Isle – Dunvegan Castle and the coral beach, Waternish Peninsula, Armadale ‘The garden of Skye’, the majestic scenery of the Trotternish Peninsula, Talisker Distillery, or take a boat ride through the Cuillins. From Uig, visit the Outer Isles of Harris, Lewis and Uist, whilst magnificent scenery, unspoilt beaches, castles and ancient brochs are just a taste of the wide diversity of things to see and do on Skye. Shop 50 yards, pub 100 yards.

    Delightful setting for a beautifully furnished and well cared-for property. The house was elegant but still warm and cosy, with splendid views from *all* the rooms - the sun rises at the front so early morning is a delight. The Aga experience is an added bonus. Handy parking, a small but pleasant area to sit out and a great base for a Skye holiday. The house is at the heart of Portree but with a nice sense of privacy and an easy walk to any part of town.

    Had a lovely time in Glennifer House. The house is very individual and was very cosy. Great central location from which to explore this lovely island. We were generally lucky with the weather but even in the rain Skye is spectacular.

    Isle of Skye is a wonderful Island, scenery that leaves you in wonder. Everyone we met were helpful and friendly. Go prepared for all types of weather. Gleniffer House is very comfortable, situated on the harbour there is always something of interest going on.
