#130 Awesome House in amazing Location
My husband and I booked Lon Ban to use as a base for hillwalking and to say we were astonished at what we found when we arrived is an understatement.
This is a glorious three double en suite bedroomed home overlooking Loch Harport. It's a beautifully presented comfortable home which we looked forward to returning to every day. It's modern, tastefully furnished and well equipped. Not only are the bedrooms and bathrooms amazing, so is the comfortable lounge, kitchen and dining room.
We've stayed at a lot of self catering cottages in Scotland over the years and this is the best of them all. If I could move to Skye I would love this house as our permanent home, given the chance, and I would not change a thing.
It's in a great location for touring not only Skye but all of north west Scotland. You won't be disappointed by this wonderful house.
