Valtos is a small crofting township close to Staffin on the Trotternish peninsula of Skye and is some 14 miles north of Portree, the Island’s capital. The area is well known for wildlife and it is not uncommon to sight whales and dolphins off the coast – binoculars at the ready!
Facilities in nearby Staffin include a community run shop and café, Columba 1400, post office, another local shop with petrol pumps, an excellent primary school and a doctor’s surgery. There is also a public slipway with boat launching facilities.
The site is on a bus route with the bus stop nearby. Secondary education is provided in Portree together with all the facilities you would expect of a modern town (although known as ‘the village’) including supermarkets, shops, banks, cottage hospital, swimming pool and library.
The port of Uig is a short drive away over the hill road to the ferry to the outer isles of Harris & Lewis via Tarbert and the Uists’ via Lochmaddy.
To the south you also have the Old Man of Storr – a geographical pinnacle forming part of the Trotternish Ridge. A fabulous feature to walk up to and marvel at as well and enjoying the breathtaking views!
