Bothan Dearg (pronounced Jerrag) - meaning 'Red Bothy' - is annexed to our house and is the only B & B in Glenbrittle. Imagine the ever popular shepherd's hut-style accommodation and you have Bothan Dearg - although without wheels!. Consider how you would feel waking up at the foot of the Cuillin Mountains - the view is staggering! If you are a mountaineer you can even plan your route up the mountains whilst sitting having a coffee inside the Bothy. The table folds out large enough for you to peruse maps and the view of the mountains is immediate. We are next to a working farm with cattle and sheep, but its the most well maintained farm I've ever known. Other than the occasional rumble of a tractor the area is incredibly peaceful. Beautiful Glenbrittle Beach is only a ten minute walk away along country single track roads, and the Fairy Pools walk - only 2 miles away. There are other places to visit in the area, such as Forest Walks in the Glen; the Viking Canal at Rubha Dunain (a long, but mainly flat, walk starting from the beach - there are a number of other beautiful walks too!); Talisker Distillery, 9 miles away at Carbost; Dun Beag Broch at Struan, 18 miles; Dunvegan Castle, 30 miles, and much more. The Isle of Skye is steeped in history.......Prehistoric Dinosaur Footprints at Staffin!
There are only 18 people living permanently in the small community of Glenbrittle and we all get along like family. The next nearest village is 9 miles away. You will come across other tourists of course because it is a spectacular place to be, but the Glen is plenty big enough for all to enjoy their own space. People travel from all over the world to be here at any time of year; even just to experience the different seasons. Sir Chris Bonnington, of course, once traversed the Cuillin doing practice climbs and, who knows, maybe he still does!
