The Sleat peninsula is known as The Garden of Skye, the indigenous woodland and abundant wildflowers combined with the magnificent sea and mountain views make it a place difficult to be rivalled. Tarskavaig is a peaceful crofting community and was the Scottish semi-finalist in the UK National Village of the Year Competition and has an enviably friendly and welcoming community spirit. The village hall is famed for its remarkable panorama of the Cuillin Mountain ridge across Loch Eishort and the ‘Loop Road’ which takes in Tarskavaig, Tokavaig and Ord is a spectacular and dramatic yet peaceful drive through a predominantly untouched and delightful natural environment. The nearest local amenities are in Armadale approximately 7 miles away where there is a village shop with petrol station and post office. In this area you will also find the ferry terminal which runs from Armadale to Mallaig. Sleat is made up of a series of small villages and the local primary school is in Ferindonald alongside the medical centre. There is a good range of quality hotels and restaurants in the locality and visitors are drawn to Armadale Castle, with its beautiful gardens and The Clan Donald Centre. Broadford has an enhanced range of facilities and is located approximately 19 miles to the north.
