The Isle of Skye takes its name from the old Norse ‘sky-a’, meaning ‘cloud island’, a Viking reference to the often-mist-enshrouded Cuillin Hills. It’s the second-largest of Scotland’s islands, a 50-mile-long patchwork of velvet moors, jagged mountains, sparkling lochs, and towering sea cliffs. The stunning scenery is the main attraction, but when the mist closes in there are plenty of castles, crofting museums, cosy pubs, and restaurants; there are also dozens of art galleries and craft studios. Along with Edinburgh and Loch Ness, Skye is one of Scotland’s top-three tourist destinations.

The small village of Portnalong is situated on the northwest of the Isle of Skye on the shore of Loch Harport. It is located 36 miles from the Skye Bridge, 11.5 miles from Sligachan and 21 miles from Portree; the Isles main centre of commerce. Portnalong is Gaelic for “harbour of the ships” and was founded by crofters from Lewis and Harris in 1921. The village played an important role as a refuelling point for allied shipping during World War II and a training area for Norwegian resistance fighters. From the village and surrounding area there is a wide range of activities that can be undertaken such as golf, guided mountaineering, and nature walks, fly fishing tuition to name but a few. Shops are located at Carbost only 3 miles away, which is also home of the famous Talisker Whisky distillery. In addition to tourism, the island is highly popular with nature lovers and also ornithologists who find birds of prey, waders, and a host of seabirds in the locale. Skye’s rugged Cuillin Mountains are known to walkers and climbers from across the world. Inverness airport is 121 miles away, it has regular flights to some European destinations as well as London, Birmingham, and Manchester. Glasgow provides a far greater schedule of domestic and international flights.
