Bungalow
Ever popular Glendale Studio is a delightfully compact but comfortable 2 bedroom self catering unit, annexed to the former Portnalong shop and situated next to Glendale Cottage. The "Studio" space is deceptive with a double and single bedroom separate from the main kitchen, living, dining area. The Studio is well equipped and offers views over to Loch Harport or the Cuillin mountains. We have installed central heating in the Studio and with the addition of a woodburning stove, it is now available all year. Even when it is snowing outside, the Studio is warm and cosy. In 2020 we modernised the shower room and added a dishwasher in the kitchen. Pet friendly with mature enclosed garden and patio area to sit out and enjoy the view.

Lovely cottage
Well-equipped cottage with a beautiful view from the lounge. Quite remote but we loved that. Some nice walks from the cottage. A bottle of wine and a pint of milk to welcome us was a nice touch.

A relaxing holiday.
The cottage was perfectly situated on the Peninsula overlooking the lake. Everything needed was in the cottage and it was clean and tidy. The garden was a nice added benefit and secure for the dog. Just one only point is the cottage didn't get any sun at all in the living area, so could feel quite cold, even when sun was out. The woodburning stove was a great asset for somewhat chill evenings.

Ideal dog-friendly accommodation
Small cottage perfect for 3 (and a dog). The accommodation is kitted out with everything you could need for a stay and was spotless. Lovely views and only a short distance from Glen Brittle and the Fairy Pools. The wood burner was very much appreciated after returning from a day on the hills. Loved it!

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 oldest Whisky Distillery is located and a half hour drive to Portree, making it a perfect base to explore the island. The communities in Minginish are scattered along the coastline of Loch Harport and and offer stunning views of the Cuillin mountains, Macleod's Tables and Loch Bracadale. Portnalong attracts many hill climbers and walkers due to its proximity to the Cuillin mountains but it is also perfect for getting to Talisker Bay and Glenbrittle Beach. For those interested in water activities, there is a pier and slipway at Portnalong, ideal for launching boats and kayaks.
Getting around
There is a limited local bus service and taxi hire, however own transport is recommended.
Access
Car advised
How to get there
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 to Fiscavaig. Glendale is the first house on the right immediately after this junction - it is easily identified by the semi circular drive.
