Where you’ll be

Glendale, Highland, United Kingdom

North West Skye provides a spectacular location to experience The island. Surrounded by giant cliffs as tall as skyscrapers this part of the island has its very own character. Leaving Tinhouse it is possible to walk unhindered in any direction. The pier and harbour is a short walk away, where fresh seafood can be sourced from the local fisherman Greig. A small shop and cafe are just down the road, and the Michelin award winning Three Chimneys Restaurant is only four miles away. Neist Point, one of the most photogenic parts of Skye is also within walking distance.
