Property description

Taigh nam Braithrean (pronounced Tie nam Brahren) is Gaelic for 'House of the Brothers'.

Situated just a short walk from the scenic headland, Rubha nam Braithrean, on the east coast of Skye's Trotternish peninsula, Taigh nam Braithrean is a beautiful three bedroom house fifteen miles north of the 'capital', Portree. It offers wonderful views across the Sound of Raasay to the island of Rona and the mountains of Torridon on the mainland beyond. To the west there are stunning views of the Trotternish Ridge with the amazing rock formations of the Quiraing in the distance.

The accommodation within is set over two levels and comprises; Entrance porch, kitchen/diner, lounge, rear hall, porch, bathroom and en-suite bedroom on the ground floor and two further double bedrooms on the first floor.

The house itself has been completely refurbished and extended and its whitewashed, traditional exterior really belies the modern comforts to be found within and further benefits from LPG central heating and double glazing throughout.

Externally the property sits within generous wraparound garden grounds which is mainly laid to lawn and bordered by mature trees and shrubs. There is a large shed at the rear of the property providing storage and ample parking is available at the side of the property.

Taigh nam Braithrean is a wonderful property positioned in a peaceful setting and would make a wonderful family or holiday home.
