Please note: There is an unfenced pond in the front garden.. Tranquil location. The Holt is a cosy, welcoming, semi-detached holiday apartment adjoining the owner’s own home. It is situated on the edge of the village of Glenelg and benefits from beautiful views of the Skye mountains to the front and the Glenelg Hills to the rear. Glenelg is an area steeped in history, having the mainland’s two best preserved Iron-Age brochs, Dun Telve and Dun Troddan, and the ruins of the Hanoverian Bernera Barracks, built during Jacobite times.

In addition to being renowned for its scenic beauty, with the drive to Glenelg over the Mam Ratagan Pass affording some of the most spectacular views in Scotland, Glenelg is a haven for wildlife. The generally elusive otter and pine marten are regularly seen, and for the birdwatcher, there is a host of interesting species to spot, including several rarities. As well as golden eagles, Glenelg has a resident pair of white tailed sea eagles which can regularly be seen fishing the Kylerhea Narrows. Dolphins, porpoises and the occasional minke whale or basking shark can also be seen. Clear nights during the winter months could reward visitors with spectacular views of the stars and the Milky Way. With virtually no light pollution, and wonderful dark skies, this is an astronomer’s delight and it is possible to witness meteor showers or the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). Glenelg, Earth is twinned with Glenelg, Mars and has the distinction of being the only village on Earth twinned with another planet! Walking, kayaking and climbing are all activities which can be enjoyed locally, and a trip over to Skye on the Glenelg-Skye Ferry, the last remaining turntable ferry of its type in the world, is both a memorable and enjoyable experience. Both sea and river fishing are available within a mile of The Holt.

Sea fishing, requires no licence and is available all year round. A permit to fish along the river (salmon and brown trout) can be obtained from the village shop and costs £10 per day (Mar-Oct). Pets are very welcome at The Holt and a pet sitting service is available by arrangement with the owner. Ferry point 2 miles. Beach ¾ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

Alan, July 2021

"had a great week there, fantastic location, with brilliant, friendly hosts. weather was fantastic which helped but the scenery around the Holt is wonderful. There was a lovely welcome pack to welcome us and Pete and Liz made sure they were there to greet us (and our dog). Fantastic all-round experience."

"Just returned from a week at The Holt. Can't praise enough how lovely Peter and Liz were. Firstly we forgot coats they lent us some..they looked after our dog one evening for a couple of hours..the welcome treats and welcome card were really lovely.I have a very bad back and struggle usually with holiday cottage beds this was the most comfortable I have ever had. Cottage was well equipped and comfortable. Wildlife in the garden lovely we saw badgers most nights we could stay awake. The welcome book gave great tips to visit. A beautiful location in a beautiful place well worth the drive."

"Very peaceful location, ideal base for exploring the west coast of Scotland. Excellent local knowledge from the hosts."

"What a wonderful place to stay, a very well equipped apartment short of nothing. Liz had added a lot of personal touches to the home to make you feel even more comfortable. We really appreciated the welcome pack that was left for us. The owners were very welcoming and forthcoming with offering information when required. The kitchen which was newly installed and was so simple to use. The garden was rich with a wide variety of birds and wildlife to boot! We recommend staying up late with nuts, sultanas, raisins, outside the patio doors for the resident badgers and pine martens and through the day seed for the many wild birds that visit. It is within walking distance of a pub and shop and beaches. not far from the apartment buzzards, seals and otters have been seen. The ferry to Skye is only a short distance away and is very well signposted."
