Burnbank Cottage, Bornesketaig, Kilmuir, Isle Of Skye, IV51 9YS
A lovely cosy two bedroom bungalow set in a rural location enjoying open views towards the Western Isles.
Entrance Vestibule, Hallway, Lounge, Kitchen, Two Double Bedrooms & Family Bathroom.
Burnbank, originally built to provide housing for the local district nurse, is an attractive single storey property situated in a rural location with wonderful views out towards the Western Isles. The property is neutrally decorated throughout yet still retains many of its traditional features including 4 panelled pine doors throughout and is warm and welcoming. Its location in the north of the island and its proximity to Uig and the Western Isles ferry, would make it ideal as a second home but would be equally appealing to first time buyers.
The crofting township of Kilmuir is situated on the Trotternish Peninsula in north Skye and lies approximately 5 miles north of Uig. There is a small primary school and community hall only a short drive away, whilst Uig offers a selection of small shops, filling station, pub and hotel, the Isle of Skye brewery and is also the ferry port to the Western Isles. A wider range of facilities, including a secondary school (to which a free school bus service is provided) are available in Portree, the principal town on the island which is located approximately 35 minutes away by car.
