Pitnacree Cottage

This lovely spacious self-catering cottage, is on the hillside above the village of Balmacara Square, on the National Trust for Scotland’s Balmacara Estate, which is an area of natural beauty and scientific interest. From the house are beautiful views to the surrounding hills and the Isle of Skye. The Square has a popular coffee shop, NTS visitor centre, gift shop and beauty salon and a Spar shop, hotel bar and Post Office are 1 mile away.

Pitnacree cottage is modern and cosy and has a large garden, regularly visited by pine martens. It is minutes away from the shore of Lochalsh and within 4 miles of Plockton and the Skye Bridge. The famous Eilean Donan Castle is 5 miles away and beautiful mountain areas of Kintail, Skye and Torridon are easily accessible by car.

There are several stunning local beaches and this is an excellent base for walking, climbing, kayaking, wildlife-watching, and much more.
