Lucy and I welcome you to our new house, Garan, in the village of Ardvasar, in the South of the Isle of Skye.
You have a small room , cosy and at the back of the house, everything you need for 1 night. No breakfast. the shared bathroom is across the hall.
This is an ideal location to stay a night or 2 for exploring the South of the Island or as a stopover for catching the Armadale to Mallaig ferry, just 3 mins drive away. (20 minutes walk).
A car is essential.

The space
The accommodation is in my newly built house, and I am offering a room only (no breakfast) which is comfortable and clean. Room measures 3.2metres by 2.8metres. Guest room has a king double(UK king size), bedside tables with lamps, built in space for hanging clothes and luggage shelves. A dressing table with a mirror and TV with 'Freesat'. A kettle and a small supply of tea and coffee.
The bathroom with shower is across the hall, and is a shared bathroom with 1 or 2 other family members.
Please note that I am offering room only, not breakfast.

Guest access
You have access to the Guest Bedroom and the Shared Bathroom. The garden and outside areas are not finished yet but you are able to use the patio just outside the main door.

Other things to note
Please be aware that our location is South Skye, and you will need a car. Allow plenty of time if you plan to explore North and West Skye as there will be lots of driving from here.
Our dog is friendly but will bark when you arrive, he may also also bark a little at other times of the day so bear this in mind when considering staying!
My Son likes to play his guitar but not later than 11-30 PM.
Please allow 20 mins between showers to let the water re-heat.

Location

Ardvasar, Scotland, United Kingdom

Sleat is known as 'the garden of Skye', the landscape is greener and compared to some parts of the Island it is less windswept and barren. The aspect here is Easterly and we look across the sea to Mallaig and some remote areas of mainland Scotland. There are some fine local walks, and visitor attractions. Point of Sleat has a remote sandy beach and Lighthouse. The ancestral Armadale Castle ruin and gardens (https://www.armadalecastle.com/), Toravaig whisky distillery (https://www.torabhaig.com/), Kinloch Lodge is a famous restaurant (https://kinloch-lodge.co.uk/menus).
http://www.visitsleat.org/Default.aspx for more info and ideas.
Please note that Ardvasar is in South Skye and bear this in mind that it is a longer drive to visit the North and West points of the Island. The village has a very small grocery shop, the nearest fuel for you car is 16miles in Broadford.
I do not serve breakfast, but some of my guests have used the local Hotel which is 3-4 minutes walk down the hill (01471 844223) https://www.the-inn-at-ardvasar.co.uk/. 'The Shed' at Armadale pier next to the ferry, and Armadale Castle (https://www.armadalecastle.com/explore/eat-drink/) also serve food in the village. Just along the main road is An Crubh - http://ancrubh.com/ which is about 15 minutes drive.
There are bigger villages on the Isle of Skye where there are more choices and shops for daily supplies. Broadford is 25minutes away, Kyle of Lochalsh, Dunvegan and Portree are all good places to find grocery shops and cafe's.
Some good friends are Kayak instructors and run trips for novice or experienced paddlers in the local area. - http://www.southskyeseakayak.co.uk/
