Castle View is set in one of the most beautiful settings imaginable

A cute cottage in a truly spectacular Scottish setting overlooking one of the country's most photographed castles has just gone on the market.

Castle View is a four-bedroom home that sits at Upper Ardelve, a village in the Scottish Highlands, overlooking Eilean Donan Castle to the east of Skye. It is currently available to buy for offers over £600,000.

The architect-designed property is located close to the narrowest point of the channel that separates the mainland from the Isle of Skye, sitting at the convergence of three lochs — Loch Alsh, Loch Duich, and Loch Long. Eilean Donan, which sits on its own little island in the water and dates back to the 13th century, is among Scotland's most iconic and most recognisable landmarks.

Set within one of Scotland's most picturesque locations, Castle View is a jaw-dropping blend of contemporary luxury and natural beauty. The property, which has undergone a complete refurbishment by the current owners, seamlessly integrates modern design elements with the surrounding environment.

Looking inside, panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows and a strategically designed living space ensure that every room captures the breathtaking landscape that blends tranquil waters with the rugged beauty of the Scottish Highlands.

Castle View is centred around its jaw-dropping open-plan sitting room, which both offers fabulous loch views and is a cosy family space to enjoy nights in. Another highlight of the property is its decked terrace, where you could easily spend hours just taking in the scenery.

Moving outside, Castle View includes a range of outbuildings such as a workshop, a small shed, and a greenhouse. Meanwhile, there are an additional five acres of croft land with planning permission applied for a detached dwellinghouse — plus a wellness studio available by further negotiation.

Property agent Iona Lamont commented: "Indulge in elevated living with this superb architect-designed home, where modern design meets the mesmerizing backdrop of Eilean Donan Castle."
