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.

Location description from owner

The Hebrides region

This house is in the area of Skye called Minginish, this area was cleared of the vast majority of its population from late1700s to end of the 1800s. As you drive along the roads in Minginish you will see the clusters of settlement that have sprung up since the area was in the early 1920s with most folk coming from Lewis and Harris. There are few of the orginal Skye families left, most having emigrated to Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South America or to the towns and cities of the UK.

As you travel around Skye you will find the main villages are Portree, Dunvegan and Broadford.

Portree, the main village, is about 20 minutes drive from Lon Ban and here you will find giftshops, a newsagent, MacIntyres,with a really good toyshop for the wee ones upstairs, library and swimming pool in the campus of the high-school, a lot of eating-out places both traditional and quirky, in the Aros centre we have a lovely little theatre that also doubles up as a cinema that also shows the latest film releases.

Dunvegan is home to our local Clan Chief, Hugh MacLeod of MacLeod, who still stays part of the year in his family home of Dunvegan Castle. The castle itself can be toured around and you can also walk around the garden grounds, they also have trips out into Dunvegan Loch to see seals. If you travel along from the castle you will come to Claigan, where you can take a wee walk to the Coral Beach. As in the other villages you will find gift shops, places to eat and village shops.

Broadford has a CO-OP with wonderful views across the bay, you will see the small isle of Pabbay and just in front of the hotel to the side the car park you will see the old harbour. Again this village has lots to offer the visitor, jewellers, estate agents, fish & chip shop, Serpentarium, Artist Studio and even a hairdressers.

The rest of Skye is up to you to explore but just search for Skye in any search engine and you will find a wealth of information

Carbost

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, Kinloch Lodge, Lochbay in Waternish.
