Balmacara, Lochalsh, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
Absolutely stunning views over Loch Alsh and Skye, looking all the way down to Loch Nevis. You will be able to see all coastal ships passing by through the narrows. Follow whales and dolphins in the lochs in local glass bottom boats (Kyle and Broadford).

Friendly Highland cows graze in front of your window while you find a cosy place within the three large living areas to read a good book or entertain. Large Plasma TV with Sky and Rangemaster double oven are only a part of the luxury within.

About the neighbourhood
Balmacara is in a perfect position to access local walks in the area, (literature supplied), and day trips to Kintail, Glenelg, Applecross and Skye are within easy reach.
Only half an hour away is the Port of Armadale where the famous 'Road to the Isles' and Mallaig can be reached by ferry. A more romantic crossing to Skye can be boarded in Glenelg, on the old car ferry, and, the destination, Kylerhea lends itself to a fantastic landing place to explore the south end of Skye.
All sorts of outside pursuits can be catered for, including mountain climbing, sailing, kayaking, mountain biking, horse-riding, (in Balmacara), local fishing for mountain trout and even leisurely sightseeing!
Good quality Highland folk music is played regularly in the area and ca...
