Lochside was the original house on the croft built around the turn of the 1900’s. After being uninhabited for a number of years the property was fully refurbished circa 1970 into the lovely three bedroom home that it is today.
Sitting above the shore of Loch Mealt – the source of the Kilt Rock waterfall – Lochside has views to the front across to Gairloch on the mainland, south towards the Old Man of Storr with the Trotternish Ridge to the rear. The property is also perfectly situated to enjoy the stunning sunrises.
