MacNab House has just been awarded the highest rating of 5 stars by VisitScotland and if you visit us we hope that you agree.
MacNab House is a spacious house that can sleep eight people in four en-suite bedrooms. Just before the village of Carbost, Minginish most areas of Skye can be reached by car within 50 minutes. Close to the Cullin Hills, Talisker Distillery & Loch Harport.
MacNab House is ideal for climbers, walkers and ramblers as it is only a short 5 to 10 minute drive to the base of the Cuillin Hills . The 'Old Inn' in the village of Carbost is our local pub is only a short scenic walk or a few minutes by car from the house, or, go along to Seamus's bar at the Sligachan Hotel where you can introduce yourself scotch malt whisky from their extensive range of single malts. At the Talisker Distillery you can join a distillery tour to find out about the making and maturing of a Single Malt Spirit into a Single Malt Whisky.
Surrounding the house is evidence of man farming the land for centuries; the old run-rig system can be seen scarring the land. At nearby Satran there is evidence of a cleared settlement. A short walk across the road will bring you to the shoreline where an abundance of wildlife can be viewed. It is also possible to see salmon jumping in the sea-loch before swimming up river Drynoch to spawn. To learn about the crofting history of Skye visit the museum of island life in Kilmuir and as you are up in the area go to the Museum at Staffin to see the dinosaur fossils found close by, for clans visit Dunvegan Castle, Armadale Castle or Eilean Donan on the way home.
