Bitacora is a fantastic new 5 star property in a stunning location on the Isle of Syke. It is set in a superb elevated position on the Waternish peninsula overlooking the Bay to Dunvegan Head and across the Minch to the Outer Isles where the most amazing sunsets you can imagine will develop before your eyes.
Bitacora is a great base to explore the many coastal walks locally and is also close to the more adventurous climbs in the Red Cullin or at the Old Man of Storr. Waternish is the perfect destination for hill walkers, mountain climbers and lovers of the great outdoors. Take time to spot a wide variety of seabirds and even a sea eagle if you are lucky. There is also an abundance of marine life including otters, seals and whales.
You are close to the historic hamlet of Stein, home to the oldest inn on Skye and a renowned seafood restaurant. Food lovers will also be delighted to be near to the famous Three Chimneys restaurant. Travel round and visit Dunvegan Castle, home of the chieftain of the Clan McLeod, or sample the delights at Talisker distillery.
Waternish is home to many skilled craftspeople with galleries, potteries and craft shops displaying local and traditional talents. You may also find yourself inspired! The quality of the light and the peace is stimulating for artists, photographers and authors alike. Of course you may prefer to just relax and soak up the tranquillity, recharge your batteries ready for the hustle and bustle of modern day life.
