"The scene was idyllic, glorious sunshine, calm sea and the surrounding hills reflected in its browns greens and purples. The place was Fisherfield on the shore of Loch Portree in the beautiful Island of Skye" - (The view from An-Airdh)
Take time to enjoy our large gardens, stroll down the croft until you reach the site of our family's original "black house" at the shore of loch Portree, watch the nosy seal's playing in the loch.
Remember to keep an eye on the sky to catch a glimpse of the sea eagles soaring effortlessly, or perhaps you would rather enjoy it all from your bedroom or, you may prefer to do a bit of wildlife spoting from the guest lounge.
Then spend a few moments reading a wee bit about the rich culture of the Macleod's of Fisherfield in our great aunt's book "The fishermen of fisherfield" sit back and then picture the old fishermen tending to their nets.
