An impressive former schoolhouse, Aird House has been sympathetically converted to create a spacious and flexible property in a secluded setting overlooking a the sea on the Isle of Skye.

Built in 1876 the house was converted into a private residence post 1954 and is now a charming property combining traditional and modern characteristics. Accommodation includes the hallway, the front-facing dining room, and a spacious kitchen with Rangemaster on the ground floor, and two double bedrooms and a single bedroom/study plus a family bathroom upstairs – the master bedroom is located in parts of the old schoolroom and as such is bright and airy and offers wonderful views.

Another part of the former school is now the sitting room, with high ceilings, a picture window, archway and original wood paneling.

Broadford, 20 miles away, has hotels, restaurants, a supermarket, hospital, banks and other useful local amenities.
