Ashaig House is a refurbished crofthouse set on seven acres of croftland sweeping down to the sea. The unique and tranquil setting of the house represents an ideal central access point for touring Skye and neighbouring Lochalsh.

We also have an adjoining, fully self-contained apartment The Lookout

Ashaig House presents a home-from-home amid glorious Hebridean scenery.  Next to a sandy beach in the peaceful Skye crofting township of Breakish, the location is exceptional, boasting uninterrupted views and sunsets across the nearby islands of Pabbay, Raasay, Scalpay & Crowlin.  This is complemented by stunning panoramic views of the Red Cuillins, and outlooks toward the Cuillin Ridge, Torridon and Old Man Of Storr.

There is parking right outside the house, and free WiFi Internet access indoors. The croftland in front of the house is fine for ball games, barbeques and kite-flying.

The accommodation is self-rated as a high 3-star level and is entirely non-smoking.
