Our Shepherd's Hut

Bracadale Views Shepherd's Hut is surrounded by stunning sea & mountain views. Enjoy breathtaking 360 views of 2 world renowned mountain ranges: The Cuillins & MacLeod's Tables & achingly beautiful Loch Bracadale. Restore yourself with epic sunrises and sets; if you're lucky, the Northern Lights! Explore our 13 acres of Skye: Golden & Sea Eagles fly overhead or rise early to glimpse our otter! Perfectly located for the Fairy Pools, Neist Point, the Fairy Glen, Talisker Distillery or Dunvegan Castle! Special.

This cosy bijoux Shepherd's Hut, with a charming sheep themed decor, is 20 feet long by 8 feet wide. Compact but perfectly formed, it offers a comfy pocket-sprung divan double bed, with soft white bedding, a sofa to sit and chill, plus a small table and two chairs for eating or to work at!  There's also a tiny kitchenette with microwave, wee mini fridge, kettle, toaster and small sink. In between meals or working then the table and chairs can be folded up and the chairs hung away on their wall hooks. Proper Shepherd's Hut style! 


There is a relaxing ensuite shower room with plenty of towels provided. It comprises a normal mains-plumbed toilet, a little sink and a revitalising electric shower with plenty of mains hot water. Local luxury handsoap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion treats are selected to pamper you! A hair dryer is provided and a heated towel rail for drying your towels.

Outside there is a picnic table and bench on a stone covered patio to sit and enjoy the stunning views of the Atlantic and Loch Bracadale as well as two mountain ranges- 'The Cuillins' and 'MacLeod's Tables'. You can just make out the very edge of 'The Old Man of Storr' too!

The Shepherd's Hut is reached by a convenient stone path through the field from your parking spot on our drive. This means you don't have to get muddy (unless you want to!) There are sheep in the adjoining field and you are most welcome to explore our 13 acres of Skye with panoramic sea and mountain views as well as a plethora of amazing wildlife including Golden Eagles, Sea Eagles and otters!

We look forward to welcoming you to Bracadale Views Skye Shepherd's Hut on the majestic Isle of Skye!

Around us

Coming into Struan just takes your breath away! You turn the corner of the road and there it is: the stunning view across Loch Bracadale and out into the Atlantic. Pull into our drive at Bracadale Views and the majestic 'Cuillins' mountains dominate the landscape or turn around and face the 'MacLeod's Tables', turn once more and see the beautiful valley with the homes nestled into the mountainside, reminiscent of the Alps. Here there is space to breathe, to roam and to be. Come!

Just a few minutes walk from Bracadale Views Shepherd's Hut, there is an outstanding Iron-age broch with spectacular views from the very top- well worth the walk up to.

There is a cafe with bookshop 'Bog Myrtle' (a Scottish wild flower) just 5 minutes' walk from Bracadale Views. Or 'The Crofter's Bite' run by our neighbouring shepherding croft, offers hot food from their pop-up street van... yum! 

Also 5 minutes' walk. There is a post office and local shop too.

We get a nice view of the Aurora Borealis from our land and can show you where the best views for some stunning northern-lights shots can be taken.

A secret beach just 3 mins drive has some spectacular evening views / sunsets and Highland Coos are usually there as well who love being photographed.

Portree, the capital of Skye, is just 20 minutes very scenic drive across the hills and is full of coffee shops, restaurants, take aways and artisan shops plus a supermarket.

Dunvegan and the Castle is 20 minutes' drive and has plenty of charming cafes and restaurants as well as local produce and the oldest bakery on Skye.

The spectacular Neist Point with its famous lighthouse often with Sharks, Killer Wales, Dolphins and seals, is 20 mins from Dunvegan. Milovaig beach with easy access to see Dolphins and Seals for those who don't want the hike down to the lighthouse.

Carbost is 15 minutes' drive from us with coffee shops, cafe, pub, 'The Oyster Hut' (with fresh Oysters, cooked languistine and fish 'n' chips) and Talisker Whisky Distillery, which you can tour.

Both The Fairy Pools and the Fairy Glen are 20 minutes' drive away in different directions. There are lovely beaches within a short drive including Staffin Bay with dinosaur footprints and a dinosaur museum. Or enjoy walking in Bracadale Bay at low tide. Golf is 30 minutes' drive.

It's a great central location here at Bracadale Views Shepherd's Hut to explore the Isle of Skye- you can easily reach all its attractions and are surrounded on all sides by the world renowned beauty of the Misty Isle.
