The Old Church is perfectly situated to allow easy access to wonderful walks, wildlife & stunning scenery. It is a deceptively large house with flexible accommodation ideally suited to two families or large groups. PETS VERY WELCOME! From the large main lounge there is a fantastic view over Ardvasar Bay & the Sound of Sleat. At the other end of the house there is a kitchen with dining table & additional lounge area looking out over a field that is usually populated with Highland cows & their calves.

PLEASE NOTE:- The information on this advert has information about the house after refurbishment in early 2012. It is more up to date than our own website. Thank you.

Just along the road there is an excellent hotel/pub/restaurant which is exceptionally friendly. There is also a small but well stocked shop in the villa...

This is a beautiful building with lots of room and lots of character. The location is very good close to the ferry. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, but I have to make a note about cleanliness: there were ashes in the fire place, dried pasta in one of the pans and the bilding as a whole was often very dusty.... more

My wonderful experience started with Carole the owner, we communicated often via email as I had problems receiving information - Carole was very patient, friendly and helpful. (Thank you!) 6 of us spent 4 days and 3 nights at the Old Church Cottage and quite simply loved it. The original 'church' sense is very strong but with a unique character... more

The house was great, there was more than enough room for all 10 of us. Everything was clean and set-up for us coming in and the owner was very helpful in making sure that everything we needed to start off with was there (loo roll, tea and coffee, milk, wood for the fire etc). The location was beautiful. Thanks for... more

Additional amenities & feature info
The house is bursting with character with wooden wall panelling, a beautiful oak staircase & some stained glass windows. It is exceptionally well equipped and intended to be a 'home from home' - the only thing we have ever been asked for is a toast rack!!

The garden is very pretty and is fully enclosed. There is a selection of garden furniture and also a 'Midgebuster' so the garden can be enjoyed at all times.
