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.
