About the neighbourhood
The picturesque crofting community of Portnalong lies in the Minginish peninsula to the west of Skye. It is only 3 miles north of Carbost where Skye's only Whisky Distillery is located and half an hour's drive from Portree making it a perfect base to explore the island. The communities of Portnalong, Fiskavaig and Fernilea are scattered along the coastline of Loch Harport, Skye's most sheltered loch and and offer stunning views of the Cuillin mountains, Macleod's Tables and Loch Bracadale.
Portnalong itself was founded by Crofters from Lewis, Harris and Scalpay who were resettled by the Department of Agriculture in the early 20th Century, bringing with them their weaving skills.
Portnalong attracts many hill climbers and walkers due to its proximity to the Cuillin mounta...

How to get there
Airport: Inverness: 183.0 km
Railway: Kyle of Lochalsh: 58.0 km
Ferry: Mallaig - Armadale: 70.0 km
The quickest and recommended way to get to Portnalong is to drive as it is easier to get around with a car when you get there. From Glasgow the journey takes just over 5 hours, but a stopover in Fort William to stretch the legs is always welcome.
Buses run 3 times a day from Inverness or Glasgow to Portree and a train runs from Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh on the mainland.
Once over the Skye Bridge go right on the A87 in the direction of Broadford. Just after Sconser, take a left turn at Sligachan on to the A863. After about 7 miles, take the left turn on to the B8009 to the Minginish Peninsula & Tattie Bogle Trail. Follow the road through Carbost and head up the hill just after the Talisker Distillery towards Portnalong. After about 3 miles, there is a junction, take the left road...
