Minginish is one of the peninsulas on Skye and was once part of the land owned by the Clan MacLeod. It is situated in south central Skye, between Loch Scavaig and Glen Drynoch in the west, Loch Harport and Glen Sligachan in the south and east. It includes most of the peaks of the Cuillin hills including Sgurr Alasdair, the highest point on the island. Much of the interior of Minginish is uninhabited except by sheep and wildlife such as Red Deer, Golden Eagles, Sea Eagles.
The terrain is a series of hills and mountains dissected by steep-sided valleys such as Glen Brittle and Glen Eynort.
To the east is Loch Coruisk, painted by William Daniell and J.M.W. Turner amongst others and visited by Walter Scott, is only accessible by boat from Elgol or on foot by track from Sligachan.
There are a number of small settlements in Minginish, principally along the south coast of Loch Harport, including Carbost, Drynoch, Fiskavaig, Portnalong, Eynort and Talisker
Crofting was once the mainstay of the economy along with forestry now the mainstay could be said to be visitors to the Isle. Talisker whisky which is world reknowned is distilled in Carbost, a short walk from the house, in fact you can see the back yard of the distillery buildings from the house.
Upstairs we have two double-bed rooms with ensuite shower-rooms. Downstairs there is a sitting-room with a study to the back, family bathroom and a large kitchen and dining area.
