Rowan House stands detached in the small community of Fiskavaig towards the north west end of the Isle of Skye. Furnished and equipped to a very high standard, it makes the perfect base for exploring or for relaxing in, with your every need catered for. From the full height glazing, you can look out and may be lucky enough to watch seals playing on the beach immediately in front of the house. Or you can try a spot of fishing from the beach, just yards away - the location of Rowan House is truly wonderful!
The Isle of Skye is one of the best known Scottish islands and is particularly famous for its spectacular scenery, dramatic history, diverse wildlife and its unspoilt beaches along with many fabulous restaurants, numerous walking, climbing and mountain biking routes, and a large range of watersports all within an easy drive. A visit to the Talisker Distillery and Visitor Centre, just a few miles from the house, is highly recommended. Here you can try the only single malt distilled on the island.
Take a trip up to the small village of Dunvegan where you can explore the castle and gardens, and from here you can also take a walk along the coastline to visit the Coral Beach, highly recommended whatever the weather. Portree, the island’s bustling capital, is well worth a visit with its lovely harbour and colourful houses, along with a good range of shops, pubs and great places to eat. There are also boat trips, a swimming pool, galleries and tea rooms.
To the north east you will find the Trotternish Peninsula, famous for its dramatic rock formations and cliffs, and to the southern end of the island you will enter the Sleat Peninsula known as ‘The Garden of Skye’. From here you can cross over the Skye Bridge and see some of the spectacular scenery and small villages dotted along this unspoilt coastline such as Plockton, Lochcarron and Applecross to name just a few. The area is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise, but the less energetic can just sit back, relax and watch the ever-changing scenery from the comfort of a chair. Wonderful happy memories will be made whilst on holiday at Rowan House. Beach 5 yards. Shop and pub 3 miles, restaurant 13 miles.
