The Beach House at Garrachan is a rebuild from the ground up of an iconic property set on the shores of Loch Dunvegan that had fallen into disrepair.

The exterior of the main house is clad with the original stones of the old house giving the property a particular stately appearance. Towards the front is Loch Dunvegan with easy access to the shoreline, an ideal opportunity for venturing out in kayaks.

About the neighbourhood
The surroundings are tranquil but not remote. The property overlooks Loch Dunvegan with the village of Dunvegan opposite from the property. Nearby attractions are Dunvegan Castle and castle gardens (the seat of the clan MacLeod), the Coral Beaches, Neist Point lighthouse and Orbost beach. There are many, many others but these should really not be missed.

There are truly great walks in any direction from the property. No need to use the car. Just venture out from the front door and choose a direction.

Close by (5 minutes by car) is the world famous Three Chimneys Restaurant (reservations required).

Shopping, lunches and dinners are available in Dunvegan and Glendale. The island capital, Portree, is 25 miles from the property.
Getting around
In order to get to see the island, a car is recommended. In case you're travelling via Inverness airport, you can arrange for a hire car there. Other airports like Glasgow and Edinburgh also provide car rental services.

The tourist business is a dynamic thing on Skye. Your best bet for up to date information on activities is to search the internet and make your reservations online as soon as possible.
