Taigh Chirsty description

Taigh Chirsty is a traditional crofters cottage, sympathetically renovated keeping many of the original features, offering home from home comforts and in an enviable location overlooking Loch Harport. Situated within the peaceful, scattered crofting community of Minginish, close to where the Cuillin Mountains can be found. This hugely impressive mountain range is the spiritual heartland of the island. Eagles are frequently seen in this area, resident hares, roe deer, otters and so much more in the way of wildlife. Talisker distillery, Skye’s only distillery, and an inn, which serves food all day and has regular live music, are only a short drive away. The walking is superb for all levels. Talisker Bay, Glenbrittle Beach, Fairy Pools and the Cuillin Mountains for the experienced climbers and so much more. A trip to Dunvegan Castle and the coral beach, Neist Point Lighthouse or the beautiful Waternish Peninsula are easily reached on the west side of the island. Take a sea trip from Portree to see the varied sea and bird life and also enjoy the beauty of the rugged coastline. To the north of Portree, is the Trotternish Peninsula, which boasts some of Skye’s most stunning scenery. To the south of the island is Broadford, where you will find ‘the garden of Skye’. Here you can visit the ruins of Armadale Castle and its lovely gardens. It is a good base to explore all parts of the Island which has so much to offer for the outdoor enthusiast including hill walking, fishing, boat trips, kayaking, pony trekking as well as the opportunity to discover the many craft/art galleries and restaurants for a more relaxing time and to be awestruck by the dramatic scenery.
