The Old Manse at Balmacara, now known as ‘Tulach Ard’, the same as the hill behind the house, is the childhood home of Lachlan Stewart, architect. It is on its own, right on the shore, overlooking Avernish Point, past Eilean Donan Castle on the road to the Isle of Skye.

First built in 1720, Lachie and his son have remodelled and modernised it making it suitable for contemporary living. The former dining room and drawing room is now one huge room overlooking the sea. Ideal for a large family celebration around the table, it is big enough to roll back the carpets for a dance or ceilidh. There are seven double bedrooms in the main house. Ground source underfloor heating has been installed and extra bathrooms created making it very comfortable without interfering with the original house. The Aga remains and the house feels as it should, with much of the old family furniture mixed with ANTA soft furnishings decorated by Annie Stewart.

All sorts of activities are available locally - fishing trips, boat trips, stalking, climbing, off-roading or even a cook to take care of the catering during your holiday.

The Main House sleeps 14.
There is an adjacent cottage which can accommodate a further 4 guests at an additional cost.
