House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Lon Ban is a modern comfortable house designed by a local Architect for the owners. In this house we are able to sleep six people in three large bedrooms that are all graded 5 stars by VisitScotland though, Lon Ban, overall is graded as 4 stars. This house has wonderful views of the Cuillin Hills and of Loch Harport the salty-waters of which lap the foreshore below Talisker Distillery in the local village of Carbost.
Skye has many facets to its character from dramatic mountains with some of the world's best climbing to hidden gems like the Fairy Glen near Uig. Take a walk to the Fairy Pools at the base of the Cuillin to see sparkling clear water cascade down the rivers that are formed in the Cuillin.
Visit the ClanDonald centre in Sleat, Dunvegan Castle or the Museum of Island Life in Kilmiur to learn about some of the history of Skye. Visit Staffin museum to see dinosaur fossils. To learn about the Sea Eagle or the Golden Eagle stop off at the Aros Centre on the outskirts of Portree. Skye takes time to explore and beguiles visitors world wide to come back. Autumn brings wonderful hues of purple, red, green, yellow and brown. Brave a snowy winter to see the land transformed into different shades of white.

The Hebrides/Skye region
The history of the island can be found at Dunvegan Castle, the Clan Donald Centre in Armadale or Eilean Donan Castle in Lochalsh.
I would recommend that you also take the time to drive to the Museum of Island Life based at Kilmiur in the north of Skye, here you will get a flavour of what crofting was in the past.
Carbost, Minginish is in a fairly central position on the west of the Island of Skye. Almost on our doorstep we have the world famous mountains of the Cuillin, beaches, a distillery where you can take a tour and taste of The Talisker, pubs with good food and restaurants known world wide e.g the Three Chimneys or Lady Claire MacDonald's Kinloch Lodge.
