Tigh Lachie is a unique self catering experience. We will take you back to a bygone era and a way of life far removed from todays hectic pace whilst providing you with all the modern facilities you would expect in a luxury cottage
Your drive to Tigh Lachie takes you along one of the most spectacular and scenic roads in the whole of Scotland and most certainly on the Isle of Skye. Once out of Broadford, and onto the Strathaird peninsula, you pass the old ruined church of Cill Chriosd on the way to the wee village of Torrin. It is then the imposing and majestic Bla Bheinn looms into full view. Around Loch Slapin and on up the ever increasingly winding single track road. You eventually arrive at Elgol, a small fishing and crofting hamlet right at the end of the peninsula.
Down at the shore there is a small harbour where the local fishing boats land their catches of lobster, prawns & crabs daily. There are also fantastic views of the Cuillins across Loch Scavaig.
Boat trips on board the Misty Isle run daily from the harbour into Lock Coruisk at the foot of the Cuillins. You will also find trips available to the small isles of Rum, Eigg, Canna and beyond.
We are ideally situated for those of you who like walking or climbing.There are many beautiful and some more challenging walks you can take from the doorstep where you may be fortunate enough to glimpse some of our amazing wildlife. Red deer, golden eagle, otter and dolphin to name but a few. If art or photography is your passion then the scenery is stunning and the light is ever changing.You will find something new around every corner.
Whatever the weather is outside you should be safe in the knowledge that when you return to your cottage a warm and inviting welcome awaits you.
Tigh Lachie combines the traditional charm of a 'Black House' dwelling with all modern comforts. Sleeping up to four people with 2 in a curtained box bed downstairs and 2 more in single beds up in the gallery makes us ideal for a family holiday. There is an iron stove nestled beneath the cottage's thatched roof and this is complimented by a modern fitted kitchen and underfloor heating.
As we are a dog friendly cottage the latter is ideal for your favourite pooch to make themselves comfortable after that long walk! There is even plenty of comfortable seating for you! We have a wide range of books and games as well as TV and bluetooth speaker should you wish to play your own music. Wifi at Tigh Lachie has recently undergone an upgrade and is now more than enough for most guests!
The Isle of Skye is becoming ever more popular for weddings and elopements, particularly at Loch Coruisk. We would be more than happy to accommodate your romantic honeymoon stay and should some of your guests want to stay locally we may be able to offer suggestions.
The Coruisk House hotel is on our doorstep for a special meal in lovely surroundings or you could go further afield to The Three Chimneys restaurant in the north of the island. Broadford also has a host of different eating places and the little shop in Elgol does lovely cakes!... So much choice!
