    Skye is world famous for its scenic views, mountain climbing in the Cuillin, Kinloch Lodge and the Three Chimneys for excellent cuisine, boat trips into Loch Coruisk made famous the watercolourist J M W Turner and Talisker Single Malt Whisky made in the village of Carbost. It is also possible to do sea-kayaking, salmon and trout fishing on various rivers and lochs. Close to the house is Fiscavaig bay where it is possible to walk along the sandy beach when the tide is out. There are numerous walks around the area; a good Sunday walk is to Talisker Bay over the old road that used to take supplies from Fiscavaig to Talisker House, another long one is the Fiscavaig Coastal Route. Just along the coast from Fiscavaig is the oldest known human settlement in Minginish at the "cave of the speckled horses" or Uamh an Eich Bhric in Gaelic.


    A ten minute walk from the house will bring you to the Taigh Ailean which is the closest pub where you can enjoy a drink and a meal, if you carry on along the road, past the pub, you will find the Portnalong Gallery  and futher down the road you will see views of Loch Bracadale from Portnalong pier.  In Carbost is the pub The Old Inn, a post office, village shop and of course the Talisker Distillery visitor centre where you can enjoy a dram of single malt Talisker before you take a tour around the distillery.
