Totaig House is a substantial detached property situated within exceptionally large garden grounds and enjoying lovely views out across Loch Dunvegan towards the Western Isles in the distance.  The property is bright and spacious with well-proportioned rooms throughout.  The large windows make the most of the beautiful views and allow light to flood into the property.  Although Totaig House is currently very much a family home it would also lend itself to anyone wishing to offer B & B.

The property is surrounded by mature garden grounds with an attractive array of shrubs and trees.  To the side is a large enclosed vegetable garden, and adjacent to that is a small orchard with young fruit trees, including apple and plum.

In addition to the immediate garden there is a large area of land to the front of the property which is currently left to nature and in the summer time is abundant with wild flowers.  Within this area is a building plot which previously benefited from planning permission for a single dwelling house.  The site would be ideal for anyone wishing to provide separate accommodation for additional family members or for anyone wishing to offer self-catering accommodation.  The whole of the garden area is enclosed by deer fencing.

Totaig is one of a number of small townships on the Duirinish Peninsula and is approximately a 15 minute drive from Dunvegan where facilities include a primary school, medical centre, variety of small shops, as well as the world famous Dunvegan Castle, home to the Clan MacLeod.  Glendale, just a short drive away has a small shop and post office and community centre, which is often used as a venue for local craft fairs.  The area is a haven for wildlife, including otters and seals.  Minki whales can also be spotted off the shore from the popular Neist Point Lighthouse.

Viewing of the property is highly recommended in order to appreciate the accommodation and potential of both the house and land.

Garden:  the immediate garden area around the house is landscaped with grassed area and mature plants and shrubs.  There is a decked area (14’ 8” x 10’ 0” max) to the rear of the property which can be a real suntrap in the summer months.  To the side is a large vegetable plot and a further separate fenced area which is planted with young fruit trees including apple and plum.  Within the garden there is also a small pond, which attracts a variety of fauna.

To the front of the immediate garden area is a larger fenced area which is currently left to nature and in the summer months this is full of wild flowers.  Also within this area is a plot which previously had planning permission for a further dwelling house.  Although this has now lapsed, there is potential for this to be renewed to provide a separate plot for other family members or perhaps provide a site for a separate self-catering cottage if required.

The whole area of land is fully deer fenced.
