Property description

A lovely traditional 3/4 bedroom property currently subdivided in two offering the potential for use as a large family home or a home with a holiday let.



Main House: Ground Floor: Front Porch, Sitting Room, Summer Room/Bedroom, Kitchen/Dining Room, Utility & Shower Room.

First Floor: Bedroom 3 & En-Suite Bathroom.

Annex: Ground Floor: Vestibule, Scullery, Hallway and Lounge.

First Floor: Landing, Two Bedrooms and Bathroom.


Glenashdale was built around 1800 and was a traditional croft house until 1910 when the side extension was built and the property was used as the local doctor’s surgery. A later extension was added to the rear of the property which now forms the kitchen, utility and en-suite bedroom.

The house was featured in a BBC Alba programme about Dr Nicolson and his sister who was one of the first female ambulance drives at Ypres. It also featured in the programme was the stained glass panel in the scullery which was created by a student at the Royal College of Art in Glasgow circa 1910. 

The current owner sub-divided the property in two providing a granny annex for her parents. This offers the potential for use as a holiday let although the connecting door could be reopened up to create a large family home.

Glenashdale benefits from UPVC double glazing and LPG central heating with a new boiler having been fitted in 2019. Solar panels on the roof provide heat for the hot water.

The property sits in a generous garden and there is a large stone byre offering the potential for a variety of uses subject to any necessary planning consents.



Scullamus is a crofting township on the outskirts of Broadford and within walking distance of local amenities.

Broadford is the second largest village on the island and is conveniently located only 10 minutes from the Skye Bridge and an approximate 2 hour drive to Inverness with all its connections south. Armadale, on the Sleat Peninsula, and the ferry link to Mallaig are approximately a 20 minute drive away. Broadford offers a number of facilities including shops, 24 hour garage, primary school, doctors and veterinary surgeries and the main island hospital. Further facilities including secondary schooling are available in Portree. Free bus travel for secondary school children is provided and the public buses operating from Glasgow and Inverness pass through Broadford.
