A house ideal for anyone keen to give up city life and embrace nature has landed on the market.
That home, known as The Boathouse, sits right by a loch in the Stein Village conservation area, in the Isle of Skye, Scotland.
It’s right on the edge of the water, offering incredible views out over the loch, the islands of Isay and Mingay, and the distant mountains of North Uist.
As it’s in a conservation area with undisturbed wildlife, the three-bedroom detached house is perfect for nature lovers.
Plus, it’s super peaceful, with a waterfall to the rear of the house and a sheltered tidal harbour for boats.
The house itself is pretty lovely, too.

Spread over two floors, the house has a cosy cabin feel.
It was built in the 18th Century as part of the Waternish Estate, then in the 1970s it was converted by the musician Donovan into a house.
Now, the house has all the modern comforts you’d expect while still maintaining the character of the original building, with gorgeous views from all the main rooms.

There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms on this level, too.
Go up another floor and there’s the third bedroom, plus an upper sitting room.

The listing describes the property as ‘characterful accommodation’, and notes that it’s currently a successful holiday let – so you could rent it out if you’re keen.
