What used to be Portnalong’s post office is now a warm retreat with an eco-friendly vibe. Everything was rebuilt with sustainability in mind: materials were reclaimed and furniture was recycled or, in the case of the staircase, rescued from a garden and lovingly restored.
This is your comfortable launch pad for expeditions into the Skye landscape, dominated by the nearby Cuillin Hills – few walkers, artists or photographers can resist their siren call. If walking’s not your thing, sea kayaking and fishing are easy to arrange locally. Keep a look out for otters and golden eagles, and on a clear night, you’ll get a breathtaking view of the stars.
After all that fresh air, the good news is that the Taigh Ailean Hotel over the road has a friendly atmosphere and good pub grub, with great views of Loch Harport.
