It stands in 4 acres of land surrounded by inspirational countryside, a blend of mountains and moorland,
sea and islands, green fields with sheep and cattle.
The house has a magnificent view of the Cuillin mountain range to the south,
and of Loch Bracadale and MacLeod's Tables to the north-west.

sunset view

Eagles, larks and herons fly overhead; the ground is bright with bluebells and primroses in spring, followed by a host of other wild flowers including orchids.

Seals, whales, dolphins and octopus are found in the surrounding waters, and otters can be seen on land or water.

There is a stillness that has to be experienced, and everywhere you may find magic. The sunsets and sunrises can be unbelievable.

HOW TO FIND US
Foxwood is situated in the north-west of Skye, approximately 1 hour's drive from the bridge. Follow the A850 north towards Portree. At Sligachan turn left onto the A863 to Dunvegan. After 15 miles you pass through Struan. Take the next turning on the left which is a single track road signposted for Ullinish. This is a loop road which makes a right angled turn around the Ullinish Lodge Hotel. Continue on until you pass a red telephone box on the left. A further 50 metres brings you to a track on the right which goes over a cattle grid and on to Foxwood, a quarter of a mile from the sea.
