Description

Taigh Iasg is in a truly magical location on the Isle of Skye. Nestled towards the end of a small road at the foot of the Trotternish Ridge, but on the western side, the far less-visited side. Peacefully situated in Glen Hinnisdal, a truly hidden gem. You can walk up onto the ridge to join the Skye Trail from the road end, go hiking in any other direction, and stroll from the doorstep to fly fishing beats which the owner, who lives next door, can advise you on.
The beauty is that you’re not far from the main Portree and Uig road, being only a few miles away. So you can be in Uig and Portree in no time at all where you will find bars, cafés, restaurants and lots of other things to do. The Fairy Glen is only a few glens away, and a highlight for any visit to the island. And a short drive via Uig and over the Trotternish Ridge will get you to the Quiraing, Staffin with its dinosaur footprints, Brothers’ Point with more dinosaur footprints, and the truly memorable Old Man of Storr. The Trotternish Peninsula really is a spectacular location for a holiday and many would argue the best spot to be for a trip to the Isle of Skye.
Taigh Iasg itself is set in a gorgeous spot surrounded by crofting land, so sheep and cattle will often roam past the garden fence. The property has an enclosed garden with ample space for two cars. Upon entering the property there is a vestibule big enough for coats, boots and a bicycle. The hallway is next and all rooms lead off of this central space. To the right is the large living/dining area which is triple aspect letting all of the mountain and moorland views in, with a fantastic amount of space in which to switch off, relax and recharge. Back to the hallway, the kitchen is laid out in farmhouse style, and the bathroom and double bedroom are at the rear of the property.
Any spot in the well maintained garden is also perfect to sit out and watch the world go about its business on this unique island. It takes this holiday home to the next level. Once you arrive, you won’t want to leave. Guests of all ages will enjoy spending time up this magical glen on the Trotternish Peninsula. Beach 4 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 6 miles.
Taigh Iasg can be booked together with Sealladh Breagh (ref UK30002) to accommodate up to 8 guests.

About the local area

Skye is one of the largest and best known Scottish islands and is particularly famous for its spectacular mountain scenery. It is also home to some dramatic history, diverse wildlife and rugged mountain beauty. The island of Skye makes for a great holiday destination with many visitor attractions, endless walking routes and fabulous restaurants.

Due to its popularity with tourists, you will find many craft shops and cottage museums. As for sports, you can visit the swimming pool in Portree, play golf at Sconser and Skeabost or go pony trekking. Watersports available on the island include diving, canoeing, windsurfing and yachting. Skye is also the ideal place for fishing and birdwatching.

Skye is easily accessible by either road or ferry. The road bridge is accessible from the Kyle of Lochalsh on mainland Scotland making it ideal for a day trip as well as a longer stay.

Lochalsh is truly highland territory full of clans and castles, hills of heather and views of lochs to the sea beyond. Visit the village of Plockton, a picture perfect location or Scotland's highest waterfall, The Five Sisters of Kintail. Where ever you go you are sure to be surrounded by some truly awesome scenery.

The Western Isles is a chain of islands also known as the Outer Hebrides. The main destination is the Isle of Lewis, a fairly flat island with many spectacular sandy beaches, a rugged coastline and a landscape that is worth investigating. Visitors will enjoy lots of activities including fishing, cycling, walking and bird watching. There are many other standing stones and archaeological monuments to visit too.

The rest of the western Isles can be explored using Lewis as a base. Most of the surrounding islands are covered in a blanket of peat meaning they are teaming with wildlife. Spot birds such as Kittiwakes, Guillemots, Kestrels, Hen Harriers and Redshank. With any luck you may even see otters, seals, eagles or dolphins off shore. In the summer months there are many colourful wild flowers to be seen and if you visit later in the season you can enjoy the heather in full bloom.
