Taigh na h-aibhne is surrounded by rolling hills and tranquil countryside where you can expect to see cattle and sheep plus a good variety of wild flora and fauna.

Cottage ViewThe River Snizort at the bottom of the Croft, leads to Loch Snizort, where you can walk along the shore and on the way visit St Columba's Isle. On it are the ruins of the ancient chapel. Its precise origins are still debated, but the site clearly had major religious significance. It became the Metropolitan Church of the Isles until its move to Iona in 1498.

Within walking distance is Skeabost Countryhouse Hotel where you can arrange golf, fishing and many more activities.

The magnificent Cuillin Mountain range can be seen from the sun deck, and on a clear day you can count ten peaks. The jagged Cuillins form what is undisputedly the most impressive ridge on the British Isles.

Dunvegan Castle, the ancient seat of Clan MacLeod and one of the most famous landmarks on Skye, is 15 miles from the house. As well as touring the castle you can explore the gardens and take a boat trip to see the seals.

The Trotternish Peninsula, an area of land 20 miles long and 8 miles wide, is famous for its spectacular geological features.

Beautiful SkyeThe extraordinary rock formations of the Old Man of Storr and the Quiraing on Skye's north-west coast are a breathtaking sight. If you are touring around the Trotternish peninsula, there is the opportunity to visit the famous Flora MacDonald monument and the Skye Museum of Island Life at Kilmuir.

Uig, the Ferry Port for the Western Isles is 10 miles from Crepigill. You can take a day trip on the M.V. Hebrides to explore the Outer Isles.
