When all you want is to be alone by the ocean, atop its windswept cliffs full of emotion. When romance and seclusion devour your very sense of being, this little Tinhouse is of what you’ve been dreaming. Gazing wistfully out across Glendale and the Isle of Skye coast, it is a distinctive home that will capture your heart and soul. Lovingly hand-crafted and with sensational seascapes, there is no better place for a heartfelt embrace.
Tinhouse sits on the island’s idyllic, north-west shores and is perched on a clifftop beside the glistening ocean floor. Designed to pay homage to the traditions of rural architecture, it is a humble masterpiece that has a tin-clad exterior. Its unassuming facade radiates with an honest simplicity, glimmering in the sunlight amongst the rugged scenery. Inside, you are treated to a modernist design, which fuses the purity of Nature with a minimalist style.
The open-plan living area has breath-taking sea vistas with double aspect windows looking straight out over the waters. Raw, natural materials bring the beauty of the outdoors in, while cosy furnishings give it a warm and homely-feel. Eclectic design pieces are innovative and unique and include a cement-topped dining table with vibrant seats. Wood-clad walls look down over the bare, cement floors, and are joined by a bespoke, birch-ply kitchen that has all you need and more.
Enjoy roasted coffee in the mornings or a glass of wine with lunch, before curling up for the night beside the crackling wood fire. Once the flames have burnt out and the wine has run dry, the sea-view bedroom is an indulgent delight. Watch the calming ocean waves from your super-king size bed or throw open the balcony doors to clear your weary head. A Corbusier-inspired bathroom is the finishing touch and has a fuchsia, walk-in shower and over-sized bath tub.
The Isle of Skye is a haven of tranquillity with magnificent landscapes and a stunning, rural coastline. Glendale in particular is known for its untouched, natural beauty where you can enjoy heady, romantic walks across atmospheric clifftops. Secret sandy bays are home to friendly pods of dolphins, while crumbling castles and sleepy hamlets tell tales of forgotten wisdom. Exquisite local, restaurants can also be found close-by, along with the magical Fairy Pools and Neist Point lighthouse.
