12 Camustianavaig, Portree, Isle Of Skye, IV51 9LQ

The crofting township of Camustianavaig is located in the popular and sought after area of Braes situated approximately 5 miles from Portree, the principal town on the island.

Portree offers a wide range of facilities including shops, hotels, restaurants, sports facilities, doctors, dentists and veterinary clinics, banks, library and small cinema located within the Aros Heritage Centre. Both primary and secondary education is available and a bus service operates from Braes to both the schools.

Camustianavaig lies at the foot of Ben Tianavaig, a hill extending to 413m which is popular with walkers.  A pair of Sea Eagles can occasionally be spotted soaring over the hill.

From the top of the hill there are panoramic views across the islands of Raasay and Rona towards the mainland, down towards the Cuillins and across Portree, north and westwards towards the hills of Harris and Lewis in the distance.  Camustianavaig is formed around a natural bay which is where seals, otters and a wide variety of sea birds can be spotted.  Dolphins and Porpoises are also also occasional visitors to the bay.

No 12 Camustianavaig sits in an enviable position up above the bay itself and is the perfect vantage point for watching all the local wildlife in the bay. What better than to sit in a comfortable armchair, binoculars in hand just waiting for an otter, seal or perhaps a dolphin to pop up in the bay (or if you are really lucky you may get a rare sighting of a Sperm Whale off out in the Sound or Raasay!).

The property has been modernised and upgraded by the present owners (including insulation to walls, floors and attic spaces) to form a warm and comfortable family home.  The heart of the property is very much the semi-open plan kitchen, dining room/lounge.  The large double oven Aga in the kitchen provides year round background heat as well as heat for cooking, whilst the multi-stove in the lounge provides additional heat for the cooler winter months.  The room offers panoramic views, not only of the bay, Raasay and the mountains of the mainland but also of Ben Tianavaig, the imposing hill that towers over the township.
