Digg is a small crofting township close to Staffin in the Trotternish peninsula of Skye and is some 20 miles north of Portree, the Island’s capital. Staffin beach is just a short drive away. It is also only a short drive – a walk for the more adventurous – to the heart of the Quiraing and the Trotternish Ridge. On a clear day the area has stunning views towards the mainland and the outer isles. The area is well known for wildlife and it is not uncommon to sight whales and dolphins off the coast – binoculars at the ready! In Stencholl, about a mile away there is a local Post Office and shop which also has petrol pumps and the community owned local store is about three miles away. There is an excellent local primary school in nearby Staffin together with a doctor’s surgery.
