Some older parts of "The Square" have recently been restored and it was at this time the village pond and landscaping were also completed. Visitors often remark how lovely it is to sit in the park and watch the ducks in the pond just a few steps from the cottage door.

As with most of Lochalsh and Skye Ashgrove is an ideal base for any outdoor pursuits such as Fishing, Rambling Mountaineering and Climbing. Cycling, Orienteering, Sailing, Pony Trekking, Kayaking, Geology and Archaeology. You could of course just sit down by a mountain stream and gaze upon some of the world's most beautiful scenery.
