Allt Dearg, Sligachan, Carbost, Isle of Skye

Allt Dearg offers self catering accommodation in Sligachan, in a spectacular and isolated position close under the Black Cuillin ridge this unique old shepherd's cottage is ideally situated for climbing, walking and for exploring the rest of Skye. Sheep sit on the doorstep and a lovely burn runs close by. It has been comfortably modernised while retaining its traditional character, including open fires, but modern double glazing throughout makes for comfort. The accommodation is divided into the main cottage which can sleep five and an annex (the Bothy) close by which sleeps three.

In the main cottage there is a single bedroom downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs. One of the upstairs bedrooms has a double and single bed in it for flexibility and the other has twin beds. The Bothy has a bedroom with three single beds. All beds have modern, comfortable mattresses, good quality duvets and pillows and are made up ready for you. The bedrooms have ample hanging and drawer space. There are lots of spare blankets. A cot and high chair can be provided on request. We don’t normally provide bedding for the cot.

All rooms have electric heaters with controllable time clocks. There is a storage radiator in the hall. There is wood in sacks in the garage. One sack and a bag of kindling is free and you pay for any others that you use (at cost) with the electricity when you leave. Both the cottage and Bothy are fully double glazed. There is a private water supply with a UV sterilisation and filtration plant. Hot water is provided by immersion heaters and controllable time clocks. The shower heats its own water.

There are a huge variety of things to do on the Isle of Skye including Armade Castle Gardens and Dunvegan Castle. If you’re a keen golfer the Isle of Skye Golf Club is excellent. For those keen on walking and climbing Skye would be a haven.
