The Apartment.

The Setting.

La Maison de Campagne is nestled in rural Kilvaxter, a traditional Gaelic community steeped in history in the township of Kilmuir. A stones throw away from the world renowned Quiraing.

 

The self catering apartment is part of an extended croft house dating back to 1850. Ideally situated on the west coast of the Trotternish peninsula, north Skye, overlooking the Outer Hebrides. Set in a countryside environment twenty miles away from the hustle of Portree. We're surrounded by croft fields, full of animals, wildlife and historic ruins.
