Croft Beag is owned and run by a young crofter, Gareth and his wee dog Marlow - read more about them here.
The croft features a burn and pond and is a haven for wildlife. Deer and birds of prey are a common site on the land. Views are amazing and we have included some of Gareth's pictures, all taken from or close to the croft, on the gallery page.
A modern static caravan is available for booking on a self catering basis.
The Static Caravan, nestled in a quiet corner of the croft, comprises one large and one small double in two separate bedrooms both of which feature ensuite facilities. A comfortable living area and full kitchen facilities are also provided. Click here for further information.
A small number of spaces are available for motorhomes or caravans. Click here for further information.
Gaelic for Little Croft, Croft Beag is, as the name suggests, a small Croft on the Isle of Skye.
At just 4 acres in size, the Croft (an historic term for a Scottish smallholding) is well named and provides a comfortable and private space to relax in a quiet corner of the island.
The croft overlooks the Macleod’s Tables and Loch Bracadale and affords spectacular views across The Minch to the outer Hebridean islands of Barra and the Uists.
We are located on the Ardtreck peninsular in Portnalong, a small village on the central west coast of the Isle of Skye, well positioned to explore all parts of this beautiful and historic island. In particular the Talisker Whisky Distillery and popular Fairy Pools waterfalls are located just a few miles away.
Portnalong pier, Fiscavaig Beach, Ardtrek Lighthouse and the ancient Dun Ardtreck are all within easy walking distance. The nearest hostelry is the Taigh Ailean Hotel in Portnalong which serves good food.
Nearby is the village of Carbost, home of the famous Talisker Whisky Distillery. In Carbost there is also a village shop, post office and The Old Inn . On the way to the village from Croft Beag you will also find the Oyster Shed where, as well as locally grown oysters, you can order lobster and chips and other fresh seafood to eat in or take away.
