Additional Location Information

The Boathouse is on the lochside, down a private track which is shared with the owner's house. The Boathouse is very secluded, as the slope of the land means it is not overlooked. There is a private parking and turning area right next to the gate which leads to the cottage door. Although the track is not bitumen-surfaced, it is quite safe even for low-slung vehicles; in recent years there have been quite a few classy sports cars there, which have enhanced my street-cred in the locality! It is about half a mile to the main road and some intrepid guests have stayed without a car, having arrived by taxi, and using the local bus service. Mountain bikes have also enjoyed the trek up the hill. The Kingsburgh Boathouse is 8 miles north of Skye's main town - Portree - and can be reached in 15 minutes, by car. There are some sheep in the field beyond the cottage gate and, seaward, the lure of watching for seals, porpoises and the otter. The seabirds are a special joy.
