Duirinish is located on Viewfield Road and only a five-minute walk from the lively town centre, Skye Heritage Centre, and idyllic forest walks.

Exploring castles and museums or walking, cycling or climbing in the famous Cuillin mountains and surrounding countryside. You can also enjoy a round of golf or simply indulge in ‘a wee dram’ at the famous Talisker distillery, nothing on the Isle of Skye is too far away!

 

The house is decorated to a high standard and offers four spacious guestrooms, two double and two twins. All rooms feature an en-suite bathroom, central heating, TV, tea & coffee facilities and private, off-street parking.

On The Map: The Isle of Skye is a large island located off the west coast of Scotland. Skye is accessed via a landbridge (A87 road) from Kyle of Lochalsh on the mainland, or by ferry from Mallaig, reached via the A830 road from Fort William.

“Cloud Island” is the name Norse settlers gave to the Isle of Skye. It is fitting. A 50-mile-long banquet of velvet moors, jagged mountains, shimmering lochs and towering sea cliffs produce stunning scenery. If the weather turns, there are plenty of castles, crafting museums, and cozy pubs and restaurants to please anyone. Along with Edinburgh and Loch Ness, Skye is one of the places in Scotland that people enjoy visiting the most. A wild geological past has produced some of Britain’s most dramatic scenery. From rugged Northern Skye to the ice-sculpted peaks of the Cuillins, the island is riveted with many lochs. The traveler is never more than five miles from the ocean. Skye is everything we think of the Highlands to be:  Wild, fierce, and mesmerizing. Overnight stays on Skye are at the island’s main town – Portree. The location of Bonnie Prince Charlie’s final days in Scotland in 1746, Portree today is a bustling port and Skye’s cultural hub.

On The Map: Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland, is located in the northeastern corner of the country in County Antrim. Belfast is well served by a network of good roads, including the M1 motorway from Dublin City.

Approximately one third of the population of Northern Ireland – about half a million people – live in Belfast. It’s setting is very attractive, nestling in a semicircle of hills, where the River Langan enters Belfast Lough. The city got it’s name from Beile Feirst  “the mouth of the sandy ford” – and was founded in 1177 when the Anglo-Normans built a castle here. It began to really expand in the 17th century with the development of the local linen and shipbuilding industries (the Titanic was built here).  Sights to see in Belfast City, the Belfast City Hall, built of Portland stone in Classical Renaissance style, dominates the city center.  The Linen Hall Library, founded in 1788 is an absolute delight, a cultural centre with exhibitions, a Theater & Performing Arts Archive and a Genealogy and Heraldry collection. Away from the city center you have the Ulster Museum in the Botanic Gardens, near Queens University which has miles of galleries and exhibitions. This lively and friendly city, with historic buildings standing side-by-side with modern creations is a delight not to be missed.

The result is a delectable menu packed full of great Pembrokeshire flavors.

St. Davids is the smallest city in the UK, but it’s more like a small village. Besides the cathedral — with is definitely worth a visit — we highly recommend taking a drive (or walk) out to the Chapel of St. Non where you will also find St. Non’s well. This spot marks the birthplace of St. David and near the ruined chapel sits a gorgeous modern chapel and retreat. This rugged part of the coastal path is also worth a stroll.

On The Map: The City of Cardiff is the Capital of Wales, and is located in a sheltered location on its southern coast. Cardiff is 150 miles / 2.5 hours drive directly west of London on the M4 Motorway.

Cardiff boasts a rich, almost 2000 year history. The first recorded settlers in 55 A.D. were pioneers of the Roman Empire, who constructed a fort on the current site of Cardiff Castle, taking advantage of the city’s strategic position at the center of three river systems. The Roman Fort protected local inhabitants for 300 years, before being abandoned as Roman power and influence rapidly declined. Impressive Cardiff Castle (pictured), dating from the 11th century, now occupies the site. Most of the original Roman construction is long since buried beneath the castle, though a portion of the old Roman walls are still visible at the Castle’s Interpretative Centre. Visitors can learn more about Cardiff’s long & interesting history at The Cardiff Story – a free museum. Cardiff boasts a vibrant arts and entertainment scene, featuring opera, ballet, musicals, and very high quality live music to suit all tastes, not to mention a diverse range of theatres, galleries & museums.
