Set beneath the wonderful Trottenish Ridge on Isle of Skye, Staffin is famed for its spotty houses, lovely beach and amazing geology.
With the rugged, yet breathtaking and beautiful scenery, the village boasts amazing views and the Hebridean Minch cuts through the beauty of the peaceful Highland retreat close to Staffin Bay.
The sand Staffin beach is an ideal place for families and is famous for its dinosaur footprints that were discovered here in 2002, which are the largest of their kind in Scotland. It is quiet and sheltered with a gently sloping shelf into the sea and can be easily reached from the main road.
The road to the north end of the bay to the Quiraing leads to a spectacular forest of mighty pinnacles and savage rock formations, such as the Prison, the 120 ft Needle and the Table, a great sunken platform where locals used to play shinty.
