The local area

Camustianavaig is very quiet and has a rural feel. The Crofter’s House is a two minute walk from Camustianavaig Bay at the foot of Ben Tianavaig. It’s a very tranquil and restful place, but only five miles from the shops and restaurants in Portree.

Centrally located on the Isle of Skye, Camustianavaig is an ideal base from which to explore Skye’s many attractions including The Old Man of Storr, The Quiraing, The Fairy Pools, the Cuillin Mountains, Loch Coruisk, Neist Point Lighthouse, Talisker Distillery, and Coral Beach.

Further afield, renowned attractions on the mainland include the iconic Eilean Donan Castle, Inverewe Garden and Estate owned by the National Trust for Scotland, Applecross, Torridon and Plockton.
