Outside, the grounds extend to just over 48 acres and include the gardens which feature good established native trees. A stone terrace encircles the house, while the remaining land comprises five large fields with natural water sources for livestock, currently used for grazing.

Strathglebe lies in the scattered hamlet of Suardal close to Broadford on the Isle of Skye, which itself lies off the north west coast of Scotland. There are spectacular views out to Loch Cill Chriosd to Benn na Caillich, Benn Suardal, Bla Bheinn and the Cuillian Ridge from the house and the garden. Broadford itself has good local amenities and the road bridge makes it a short drive to the mainland for any further necessities.

The guide price is £499,000. For further information please contact CKD Galbraith on 01463 224 343 or visit www.ckdgalbraith.co.uk.
