Quiraing View is situated in the Trotternish peninsular of the Isle of Skye on a working croft. We are facing the Quiraing mountains and share stunning scenery, no matter what window you look out of you are guaranteed either a view of the sea or the mountains.
The Island's culture is a huge tourist attraction and here in Staffin this is no exception. It has been described as having kept its culture, the land in the area is still being use for crofting purposes. Hay is still being made and potatoes are still being planted. Working sheepdogs can still be seen in action.
For walking enthusiasts some highlights are the walks along the Quiraing ridge (where golden eagles can be seen), the Kilt Rock viewpoint and the Old Man of Storr are also close at hand.
For fishing enthusiasts there is fishing available locally, both fresh water and rod fishing from nearby rocks. Boat excursions are held.
If Island history is your interest there are two very good museums nearby, one situated in Staffin, the other in Kilmuir, our neighbouring community which is steeped in history. Flora MacDonald who helped Bonnie Prince Charlie escape back to France after the Jacobite risings is buried here and her monumental grave is a big attraction. Whatever your interest, Quiraing View is an ideal location for couples looking to get away from it all.
We are situated approximately 18 miles from Portree, the capital of the Isle of Skye. Approximately 15 minutes drive will take you to Uig, the main port to take you to the Outer Isles.
We are centrally situated with one hotel, one restaurant and one internet cafe nearby. Also close at hand are two grocery shops, churches and beach.
'We live on a farm in Aberdeenshire on Royal Deeside which has wonderful scenery, but we have to admit your home has everything, your beautiful house, the sea, the cliffs and walks are awesome. We have had a wonderful weekend'.

When you arrive on Skye, head for Portree. From Portree drive north along the A855. This road will take you straight to Staffin. Continue through Staffin on the same road and you will arrive at Digg, where we are situated.
If you arrive on Skye from Uig, you can make the journey shorter by taking the minor road direct from Uig to Staffin; ask for more directions if you need them.
