About our home

Iconic location, ideal for one or two families. Total 'Outlander country' for those who watch box-sets. Among the best panoramas in Scotland. Warm and cosy house with open fire. Check out our youtube video - just search 'achachleat'. Welcome to Achachleat, situated in Elgol on the Isle of Skye (The "Winged Isle" featured in the Jethro Tull song 'Acres Wild'). Nestling on a ridge above the sea the property has stunning panoramas of the Black Cuillin mountains, out to sea and the small Isles of Soay and Canna and beyond to open Atlantic, and a broad horizon of over 40 miles of mainland mountains. From sunrise to sunset the views are quite outstanding. Mountains drop into the sea, immerse yourself in the wonder of the West Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Come over the sea to Skye, the heart of Outlander.

More about us

  1. We are a couple with grown-up kids. We have put our holiday home up here so we can take advantage of swaps/points. We rarely rent it out, is available much of the time, and love this site and the concept.

  2. Gavin is Managing Director of Allied Westminster and co-founder of LovetoEscape.com.

  3. We love hill walking, kayaking, walking on beaches, pottering about in lovely coastal towns and villages. We always enjoy a winter ski holiday, usually going to a friend's apartment in Mottaret, France. Keen to travel and explore new places. From time to time the 'younger' ones may come with us if the property is the right size.

Iconic location, ideal for one or two families. Among the best panoramas in Scotland. Warm and cosy house with open fire.

Nestling on a ridge above the sea the property has stunning panoramas of the Black Cuillin mountains, the small Isles of Soay and Canna and beyond to open Atlantic, and a broad horizon of over 40 miles of mainland mountains. From sunrise to sunset the views are quite outstanding. Sea and mountain, and steeped in history, the best of the Scottish Highlands.

Lovely Restaurant is only a short walk away. Cosy and informal restaurant serving the very best of local ingredients cooked and presented with elegance and simplicity. They stock a tempting array of single malt whiskies.

The property has up to 4 bedrooms and can provide very flexible accommodation, perfect for one or two families.

This is an ideal location for hill walkers, climbers, bird watchers, landscape photographers, and those wishing to get away from it all with one of the most spectacular backdrops in Britain.

Elgol is famous for its sunsets; photographers can often be seen waiting for the sunset with cameras on tripods on our near the jetty car park. The house is only a 10 minute walk, or 2 minute drive from the jetty, and the local beach is renowned for fossils and the incredible honeycombe rock formation.

Great boat trips from the village under the mountains and to the inner Hebrides.
