On the Isle of Skye’s west coast sits Black h, an architectural-hideaway for two. A world away from the city, immerse yourself in a journey through the landscape to the Harlosh peninsula before retreating to the comfort of the house. Black h offers a chance to connect with nature whilst relaxing in a contemporary build that is both spacious and luxurious. From the house’s various viewpoints, experience the beauty of the ever-changing views of Loch Bracadale, the Cuillin and MacLeod’s Tables. If you are looking for a place to stay for six people, check out the owner’s other hideaway, Wood h.

Space to relax

Black h combines the luxury of a contemporary place to stay with the opportunity to experience the beauty of Skye’s dramatic west coast. The house and its interiors instil a sense of calm and balance even when there’s a storm circling outside.

Escape into nature

Set out from the doorstep into the croft and before venturing further afield. After a day of exploring, enjoy a drink outside and watch the sun go down. Just being at Black h is an incredible experience – even the darkness at night is something to behold.

Rural and contemporary

The house is perfectly positioned atop a croft and its floor-to-ceiling glazing looks out onto breathtaking views. The blackened-timber exterior continues inside where it meets the warmth of a soft palette and crafted furnishings.
