Taigh Daibhidh is a well-designed detached property; it is spacious and furnished with quality and style to ensure all comforts are met for an enjoyable stay. It is situated in the crofting township of Kilbride, where sheep and cattle roam freely.
It is a short walk to Loch Slapin, a sea loch, and the lovely bay of Camus Malag, with stunning views of the Small Isles, Blaven and the black Cuillin hills in the distance. From this bay, there is a well-known circular walk, which passes through the deserted villages of Borreraig and Susinish. These villages were abandoned during the Highland Clearances. High Pasture Cave is also within walking distance from Taigh Daibhidh.
The red Cuillin hills are visible from the house. The area has so much to offer with an abundance of wildlife, including buzzards, golden and sea eagles, otters, red deer and so much more. Boat trips from Elgol will take you into Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Cullin mountain range; this impressive loch is the spiritual heartland of the island and has been voted by National Geographic as one of the top ten most beautiful places in the world. Marine life such as porpoises, seals, dolphins and whales are frequently seen on the boat trips from Elgol.
Skye has so much to offer for the outdoor enthusiast, with activities such as hill walking, fishing, boat trips, kayaking and pony trekking, as well as the opportunity to discover the many art/craft galleries and restaurants. So come and enjoy a week at Taigh Daibhidh for a relaxing time, and to be awestruck by the dramatic scenery.
