For a far-flung romantic getaway or unique solo break, this luxury self-catering chapel conversion on the Isle of Skye in the Scottish highlands is the perfect sanctuary. Complete with a sauna and spa bath which overlooks Loch Harport and the soaring mountains beyond, Supernova lets you experience island life in the lap of luxury.
The Isle of Skye in Scotland takes its whimsical name from Skýey, meaning ‘Cloud Island’, coined by ancient Vikings enraptured by the whirling mists over the Cuillin hills. This gem of an island (recently voted 4th best island in the world by National Geographic) offers a smorgasbord of wind-scoured moorland, jagged mountains and sparkling lochs over 50 miles. In contrast to the vistas of raw wilderness outside, the interiors of this luxury self-catering chapel are striking and plush. Supernova's clean monochrome theme adds a contemporary twist, but original features and soft furs retain a traditional highland cottage charm.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
This quirky home flaunts a reversed-level design, ensuring the living areas make the most of those awe-inspiring views. The king-size bedroom sits on the ground floor down the bespoke spiral staircase, with an en suite comprising walk-in shower and WC. Also on this level is a sauna and spa bath; perfect for pampering after a day's exploring.
The famous and formidable Cullin Mountains are a playground for valiant mountaineers and rock climbers who dare to hike its jagged peaks and rocky terrain. The less venturesome may prefer to admire Skye's sci-fi film scenery by taking to four wheels. Or, opt for a boat trip down the placid waters of Mallaig to Armadale past the iconic Glenfinnan Monument and white sands of Morar. Carbost is a traditional highland village with local shop, friendly inn and world-famous distillery. Don't forget to pick up some artisan whisky to savour by the fire on your return to the chapel, it will be the icing on the top of your island escape.
Being set on the serene shores of Loch Harport makes this Scottish retreat all the more seductive. What better way to relax than with a brisk mountain hike followed by a steamy affair in the sauna and soak in the spa bath? Let the bubbles soothe weary muscles and enjoy breath-taking panoramas over the glistening loch and snow-capped mountains beyond. Skye enjoys some of the darkest skies in Europe. Stargazing through the telescope in the living room will make you feel as if you are on the edge of the world. Look out for the bejewelled cluster of Pleiades in November and the magical meteor showers of Perseides in August.
Supernova has ample parking for two cars and is well-equipped; featuring a fridge, freezer, electric oven, hob, dishwasher and combined washer-dryer.

AROUND THE PROPERTY
Style: Clean monochrome interiors create a Spartan-style abode where less is more. The mod design is softened through a medley of textured fabrics and the fifty shades of grey imply a romantic yet masculine theme.
EXPLORE. DREAM. DISCOVER.
Property Consultant Samantha says
I was on cloud nine when I visited this beautiful converted chapel. Perched on a highland hillside with stunning views across the loch, it makes a great base to discover this peaceful, historic island. Whatever the weather, it is just the most perfect and peaceful place to be!
FOOD AND DRINK
This self-catering chapel has everything you need to cook up a Scottish storm for your loved one. Enjoy breakfast alfresco with views of the loch sparkling in the morning sun.
Nestled above the distillery is The Oyster Shed, a brilliant farm shop and hot seafood takeaway. Pick up some of their quality island produce including fresh crab, lobster, langoustines, mussels, smoked fish and shellfish among other delights from the sea.
Experience a traditional highland pub with a visit to The Old Inn just a short stroll down the road. As well as being guaranteed a warm welcome by the owner (a relative of the owners!), this award-winning inn will give you a real flavour of the island; with great live music, fish caught from the loch, fresh meat from the Highlands and delicious oysters from the neighbouring farm. For a romantic affair, dine by candlelight at the Three Chimneys, famous for its seafront location, high quality island produce and exceptional service.
