Accommodation Detail
This unique and thoughtfully designed self-catering holiday home has been recently constructed and made available for luxurious self catering holidays in the perfect location on the Isle of Skye. The house is positioned to take full advantage of the world famous Waternish sunsets, fine dining at the Lochbay Restaurant and the quaffing of award winning ales at the Stein Inn, the oldest Inn on Skye; both 5 minutes walk down the hill. It should be noted that Lochbay Restaurant has just been awarded a Michelín star by chef Michael Smith of Great British Menu fame.

Prepare to be blown away by the enormous open plan living space which flows seamlessly outdoors to an equally spacious deck overlooking the bay, its islands and across the Minch to the Outer Hebrides strung like jewels along the horizon some 30 miles West. If you get bored of the spectacular sunsets or the storms and squalls dancing towards you across the Atlantic, we provide a full sound and video system for your entertainment.

This makes it a perfect romantic get-away, for food lovers, adventurous types, also for families with small children, all rooms are on a single level with the most modern levels of accessibility and we even welcome very well behaved dogs.

Amenity Notes
The three spacious bedrooms are all en-suite and enjoy uninterrupted floor to ceiling views across Lochbay to the horizon. French linen, deep pile Egyptian cotton towels and local artisan Skye Soaps are provided for your use. The master and 2nd bedrooms have a kingsize bed, the third bedroom is a twin with two single beds.

The well equipped kitchen which lords over the living space has been designed with the social inclusion of the chef in mind and will suit the keenest culinary requirements. The house in general includes all mod cons to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible. You really can consider Salt Winds to be your home away from home on the Isle of Skye.

The house benefits from some impressive eco-credentials. With triple glazed windows, extreme levels of insulation and draft proofing throughout. Thus, very little energy is lost from the highly efficient Air Source Heat Pump and wood burning stove. The entire floor space is heated from the slab below, and each individual room has independent thermostat controls to keep the ambient temperature exactly as you desire.
