This huge 18th-century property is located on the spectacular Isle of Skye, where whale-watching, dramatic sunsets and beautiful hill walking await you. Discover the impressive range of wildlife that dwells on the islands including eagles, deer and even sharks. Visit the breathtaking Neist Point Lighthouse (2 miles), set on a rocky headland, or go back in time at the exquisite Dunvegan Castle (9 miles), full of fine oil paintings and fascinating clan treasures. With four bedrooms and two bathrooms, the house is ideal for an action-packed holiday among friends or a corporate team-building event. It offers comfortable and spacious accommodation where you can refuel and recharge for the following day's activities.

The property is at the end of a private driveway leading through wooded grounds. Inside, cheerful colours and local artworks and photography create a welcoming and homely feel. Enter through a large porch/boot room where you can change into your slippers; this leads to a big, welcoming lounge with comfortable sofas. The kitchen is in a country style and has a central table for chopping up veg for group meals. You can eat altogether in the dining room where you will find a selection of board games to keep you busy late into the night. Heading upstairs, the landing at the front of the house leads to the master bedroom, a triple room and a bathroom – don't miss the spectacular sunsets from here – while the back landing gives you access to two more double rooms as well a second bathroom.

Head outside through doors from the kitchen, where you'll find a large walled garden with a good-sized lawn where the children can run around, as well as plenty of shaded areas for the dog to snooze in. There's a table and chairs for dining alfresco on warmer nights. Private parking by the house.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Grab your walking boots and enjoy a family walk to the Neist Point Lighthouse, a popular spot just 4 miles away. This local attraction is popular with both nature enthusiasts and photographers, as it's one of the best places in the UK to spot whales, dolphins and sharks; the landscapes are no doubt out of this world. For an even closer look at some wildlife, head to the Stein jetty (14.5 miles) and embark on a seal-spotting boat trip.

Another enjoyable day out can be found on the banks of Loch Dunvegan at Dunvegan Castle (9 miles). This is the oldest continuously inhabited castle in the UK, and its family invites you to tour the regal home and gardens. Regular boats depart from the castle's jetty and embark on two-hour loch cruises, a lovely day out in good weather. Alternatively, you can head out on a fishing expedition for pollock, mackerel and coalfish (with all rods and tackle provided free of charge).

Despite the secluded location of the home, you'll be happy to find a small shop and post office half a mile away. Be sure to visit Skye's oldest bakery just 7.5 miles from the property, which offers fresh local produce alongside daily baked breads and pastries to take home for breakfast. Be sure to plan an evening meal out during your stay as you'll find yourself a mere 3.5 miles from a critically-acclaimed restaurant with bar.

A really good base for a family holiday. Lovely location, great garden and grounds, quiet. The house is perfectly adequately furnished so that you dont have to worry about anything getting damaged. A new central heating system has been installed which should help with the damp and slightly musty smell. Overall though a good place.

This is a great place stay quite comfortable and lots of space. The walled garden is great of kids and dogs. The wildlife is amazing, plenty of birds of prey and the seal colony within walking distance. The local post office/store is really friendly and is a treasure trove of all the things we forgot. We loved this place.

lovely but basic accommodation. Very comfortable, lovely but remote location, was perfect for us . Good amenities in nearby Dunvegan. Lots to do around the area if you like the outdoors. Easy enough to travel around Skye.

Nice traditional house, with everything you need for a wonderful holiday with family or friends. Great view. Great location if you like tranquility (but you have to know it is a bit remote)

Hamara Lodge is reached by a secluded avenue and overlooks the bay. You can get down to the lovely beach via the field or the lane. It is really spacious and an exciting place to stay. We all loved it. There were lots of sofas in the sitting room, a spacious dining room with lovely views and a really well equipped kitchen with a coffee machine to cRead moreater for crowds. It is comfortable but not luxurious and might be a bit damp in the winter, but that made it all the more relaxing for a family party. Glendale has a fascinating history, a superb village shop with nearly everything you need, two cafes, and excellent walking. You escape the summer crowds into your own terrain and the walled garden is delightful. We would definitely come again. Hide

I spent all of my childhood summer and Easter holidays at Hamara Lodge. It was, and is, a magical place for family holidays. The setting at the head of Loch Poolteil, looking out to the Outer Hebrides, is unrivalled. The house has been sympathetically modernised without destroying its character. The walled garden is safe for children of all ages, wRead morehilst retaining a wild element for the more adventurous. I could not recommend the place more highly. Hide

Had a great peaceful week away in Hamara Lodge. House was perfect for our needs and the enclosed garden was brilliant for my dogs. Would certainly recommend and it's only a 5minute walk to the beach which my grandson loved
