Stunningly situated on the shores of Tianavaig Bay and
located within the popular crofting township of Camustianavaig on the east
coast of Skye, The Bothy and The Old Salmon Station offers the rarely available opportunity to purchase a
property in a highly desirable shoreside location. This deceptively spacious, 4
bedroom (1 en-suite) detached bungalow has been tastefully and significantly upgraded
by the current owners to create a stylish home hidden from the main township in
a unique and tranquil setting. Set
within generous well-maintained garden grounds with shore frontage, The Bothy
is accessed via a footpath or reinforced vehicular track over the foreshore. Included
in this package is the former Salmon Station and Smoke House, a substantial
outbuilding with development potential (subject to planning permissions). Conveniently
located just a short drive from all amenities in the island’s capital Portree this
property must be viewed to fully appreciate the spectacular location.
