'Aros nan Aisling' - Dwelling of Dreams

Completed in 2013, this luxury holiday home is based on a traditional Hebridean longhouse, however modern architectural design has enabled the most to be made of the views, light and interior.

Sleeping 8 (+ baby), the property has stunning panoramas of the Hebridean islands across the sea, Skye and the mountains of the mainland, and all bedrooms have ocean views. Out the back, you'll see the majestic mountains of Assynt.
