Tranquil location

The Holt is a cosy, welcoming, semi-detached holiday apartment adjoining the owner’s own home. It is situated on the edge of the village of Glenelg and benefits from beautiful views of the Skye mountains to the front and the Glenelg Hills to the rear. Glenelg is an area steeped in history, having the mainland’s two best preserved Iron-Age brochs, Dun Telve and Dun Troddan, and the ruins of the Hanoverian Bernera Barracks, built during Jacobite times. In addition to being renowned for its scenic beauty, with the drive to Glenelg over the Mam Ratagan Pass affording some of the most spectacular views in Scotland, Glenelg is a haven for wildlife. The generally elusive otter and pine marten are regularly seen, and for the birdwatcher, there is a host of interesting species to spot, including several rarities. As well as golden eagles, Glenelg has a resident pair of white tailed sea eagles which can regularly be seen fishing the Kylerhea Narrows. Dolphins, porpoises and the occasional minke whale or basking shark can also be seen. Clear nights during the winter months could reward visitors with spectacular views of the stars and the Milky Way. With virtually no light pollution, and wonderful dark skies, this is an astronomer’s delight and it is possible to witness meteor showers or the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). Glenelg, Earth is twinned with Glenelg, Mars and has the distinction of being the only village on Earth twinned with another planet! Walking, kayaking and climbing are all activities which can be enjoyed locally, and a trip over to Skye on the Glenelg-Skye Ferry, the last remaining turntable ferry of its type in the world, is both a memorable and enjoyable experience. Both sea and river fishing are available within a mile of The Holt. Sea fishing, requires no licence and is available all year round. A permit to fish along the river (salmon and brown trout) can be obtained from the village shop and costs £10 per day (Mar-Oct). Pets are very welcome at The Holt and a pet sitting service is available by arrangement with the owner. Ferry point 2 miles. Beach ¾ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    A good base for the local area. The sloping roof of the upstairs rooms means that those above average height may argue with the roof or bathroom fittings from time to time. Otherwise a comfortable cottage in a peaceful location

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you found The Holt to be a comfortable base from which to explore the area, we do try very hard to make it so. We appreciate that the sloping ceiling is more awkward for taller guests and for this reason this is specified in our property description. We would just like to remind future guests that there is also a bath and a constant supply of hot water, so there is a suitable alternative.

    Excellent from start to finish. The owners sent a welcoming letter and left gifts in the house to make us feel really welcome. The house had everything in it anyone would ever need on a holiday (even some new toothbrushes in case we forgot them). Also if you want to see pine martens then they come to the window and you can get up really close without disturbing them. There is also lots of other wildlife to be seen in the area. All in all a perfect place for a holiday and one where we will most probably return to in the future.

    Great location and owners who lived next to holiday accommodation. Welcoming gifts of Easter eggs, bottle wine and cookies along with a bag of treats for our dog. Lots of information in the accommodation on what to see and do in the area. The icing on the cake being Pine martins that visited every evening to feed on peanuts from window feeders.

    A fabulous cosy and well equipped cottage in a stunning location, a real highland hideaway. Hosts were so helpful and friendly, thoughtful extra touches made us feel even more welcome. Glenelg is a special place, we will definately be back.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that the little festive extras provided enhanced your visit. We have tried to make The Holt a home from home for our guests, especially during the Christmas and New Year period, our aim has always been to provide accommodation that we would be happy to stay in ourselves. It was lovely to meet you and we look forward to welcoming you back.
