Views Inside And Out

With this holiday letting in the UK as your stylish basecamp, take day trips to Macleod’s Tables to the west and the Cuillin Mountains to the east. A cluster of crystal clear rock pools and waterfalls called the Fairy Pools is more than worth the short voyage from the Black h grounds. Then complete the fantasy with a visit to the nearby Dunvegan Castle followed by a whiskey-tasting tour at the famous Talisker whiskey distillery. 

All tuckered out? Indulge in a day spent inside Black h amongst the home’s contemporary yet homey interiors featuring neutral black cladding and white walls, complemented by wooden tones. The split-level open design is composed of clean lines and exquisitely modest details: sheepskin rugs, leather lounge chairs, and wood accents bring warmth to the minimalist style.  

But whether you’re trekking through the surrounding croft, or nuzzled with a good book in bed, panoramic views abound at Black h with floor-to-ceiling bedroom windows providing the perfect gateway to cozy sightseeing.  

Description

Facing sweeping views of Loch Bracadalea and Cuillin to the east, and Macleod’s Tables to the west, this holiday letting in the UK takes the drama of the landscape and amplifies it through simple but distinctive design.

Positioned and designed to both withstand the weather and embrace the landscape, you’ll be immersed in both. Surrounded by open croft, this split level, open plan  hideaway for two is private, contemporary and quietly luxurious.

A strikingly modern residence modeled on traditional Scottish longhouses of the region, Glasgow based architects Dualchas have captured the cinematic quality of the landscape through a simplicity of gesture, spearheading a bit of a renaissance in architecture in the Highlands region. 

Basing the design on a deep understanding of the cultural context, Dualchas also embrace sustainability with the use of energy harnessing technology, and materials and with the northern climate in mind. 

Clad in dramatic black timber with strategically placed floor-to-ceiling glass that opens out to the views, the home’s position and response to the site was carefully considered.

Compact in design but with generous, open-plan living spaces, the interiors feature contrasting black and white washes with oak wood accents and a wood burning stove that keeps things warm and welcoming even on the coldest of nights. There’s a chefs kitchen and dining area and one double bedroom facing heart-stopping views. 

Decor is kept to a minimum, with a sleek aesthetic that keeps it simple but stylishly in tune with the architecture.

There are two outdoor decks from where you can breathe in the dramatic, ever-changing scenery. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi, cell phone coverage (3G/4G), satellite TV with soundbar, Bluetooth Audio Pro stereo speaker (Android, Apple and Windows devices) and DAB radio, laundry facilities, kitchen and bath amenities. One bundle of firewood provided, ample parking. 

AROUND

The northernmost island of the Inner Hebrides – the Isle of Skye is a remote and dramatically beautiful setting. 

Situated along the island’s spectacular west coast, the house overlooks Loch Bracadale with views to the Cuillin to the east and Macleod’s Tables to the west.

The region is just a few miles from Dunvegan Castle (believed to be the oldest inhabited castle in Britain) and its charming village, and under an hour from the island’s capital of Portree.

The peninsula includes several townships  and an abundance of sleepy country roads and moors where the sheep and cattle wander freely. An expansive and protected wildlife habitat, the area is home to an incredible diversity of land and sea birds and marine life and dazzling displays of wildflowers in the Spring.

The nearby Coral Beaches and Neist Point shoreline feature spectacular white sand beaches and spectacular rock formations which visitors can explore.

LOCATION

Isle of Skye, Scotland. Nearest Airport: Inverness Airport: (132 miles). The island is reached by ferry (Glenelg to Kylerheais a very scenic route) or by road bridge from Kyle of Lochalsh (mainland) to Kyleakin (Skye).

BEST TIME TO VISIT: Spring through Fall

  • Johan van der Merwe, March 24, 2019

    Black H is absolutely beautiful, well designed and stylishly furnished. The kitchen is very well equipped and its a very easy house to settle into.

    Jason and Sarah are very close by if you should need them, but without any intrusion to one’s privacy.
     
    It’s the ideal hideaway as its very private with no traffic, no light pollution and set up high to make the best of the exquisite views that Skye has to offer and watching the weather change from the large expanses of glass is truly mesmerising.

    We had the most relaxing stay and we were very reluctant to leave.  I would highly recommend it if you need to shake of the stresses of the city!
