The Eyrie is the first holiday rental property from the award winning R.HOUSE team, renown for their cutting edge designs, timber framed homes and eco principals.

Throughout, the contemporary house is flooded with light thanks to expansive floor to ceiling windows and doors – that also maximise the jaw-dropping views from every room to Skye’s east coast, the off islands and on a clear day, to the Torridon Mountains and Gairloch on Scotland’s west coast.

Engineered oak floors add to the glamour (and practicalities of island life). The house is super-insulated and heated with a Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery system, keeping it cosy in winter and cool in the summer – the perfect place to retreat to after a day exploring this enchanting isle.

Furniture, soft furnishings and stoneware from Scottish luxury goods company, Anta, soften the bright, light rooms.

Living area

The spacious living area centres around a wood burning stove with comfy couches perfectly placed to make the most of the views. To the side, sliding doors open onto a paved deck, partially enclosed with old stonework from the original house, which provides another space to watch the spectacular sunrises or gaze at the clarity of the island’s huge night sky.

A dining area sits alongside the modern, sleek kitchen – complete with NEFF appliances.

While this is a getaway from it all destination, there’s plenty of high-tech entertainment kit in the R.ESCAPE: There’s satellite TVs in the living space and both bedrooms, plus a docking station.

More traditional past times are well catered for too, with binoculars, a great local reference library – walks, wildlife and things to do – plus reading books and board games.

En-suite bedrooms

This R.ESCAPE can be cleverly configured as a one or two-bedroom property – the second bedroom housed in it’s own stand-alone pod – providing privacy and peace for sharing couples. Each spacious bedroom comes with king size bed, a deluxe en suite – with a generous walk in shower and a large double ended tub in the main-house bathroom… and of course those spectacular views.

Bathrooms feature hi quality fittings – Swiss porcelain from Laufen and fittings by German company Grohe. The finest quality Egyptian cotton towels are provided along with a welcome pack of Isle of Skye Soap Company toiletries.

Your R.ESCAPE welcome

A welcome hamper contains a host of local delights.
