Location (important for new visitors to Skye)

The Star House is situated in an area of Skye called Glendale. It is a small community and visitors need to understand the remote nature of the location. There are no nearby pubs or shops, other than a post office and a coffee shop. The nearest small town, Dunvegan, is around seven miles away (20 minutes drive) and the nearest pub about 12 miles away, in Edinbane.  The Star House is situated about 500m from Menish Pier, a working pier on Loch Pooltiel. For those unfamiliar with Skye, and Glendale in particular, the weather can be very changeable and visitors should come prepared for all weathers. Our house is about 45 minutes drive from Portree, the island's capital, and most areas of Skye can be reached  by car within a 90 minute drive.

Nearby Attractions

Attractions include Neist Point Lighthouse; Talisker beach, Glen Brittle beach, Coral beach, Dunvegan Castle, the Old man of Storr, Kilt Rock. There are countless other attractions on Skye and in the house we have provided a host of local maps, OS maps, and books on the area and the island.

Astro Observatory

Available to rent to keen astronomers from autumn

Our astronomical observatory is now up and running, with power and WiFi Internet access.

Our observatory is a Pulsar 2.7m full height dome which can easily accommodate 3-4 people. It has heating, a manual dome and aperture. Our telescope is a 9.25" Celestron Nexstar Evolution, with a Celestron CGX-L equatorial mount. This can be computer controlled or with its StarSense handset. The scope is aligned and ready to go whenever needed since it's on a sturdy, concrete mounted Pulsar steel pier.
