Croft Land

6 Totaig sits within a 7 acre (to be confirmed by title deeds) tenanted croft with a further 11 acres (to be confirmed by title deeds) permanent apportionment land of which is laid mainly to native woodland.  The croft land has been well kept and worked for many years with access taken from the township road leading down to The Sheiling with access continuing down to the large shed.

The croft land is fully enclosed by deer fencing and hosts large gates, with a quaint metal gate leading down through the native woodland to the shore (this is steep and requires good footwear and a good level of fitness).  At the shore there is a seating area to enjoy the views on offer along with private mooring licence.

The croft is carefully managed to provide a wonderful wildlife habitat for flora and fauna with several seating areas provided to admire the view, a large soft fruit garden, apple trees, native woodland areas, a pond and small stream running through.

Two large poly tunnels along with a large number of well established and fertile raised beds and open growing areas which present a fantastic opportunity either for self sufficient fruit and vegetable production or for the use as a small market garden as has been done so successfully in the past, and there is also a large wooden agricultural shed currently used as a workshop.

There is an original byre which has been tastefully rebuilt with a roof being added to create a wonderful storage space just off the main township road. The croft land offers the potential for further development to suit prospective purchasers requirements.

Totaig is a friendly crofting township situated on the beautiful Duirinsh peninsula from which there are desirable open views across Loch Dunvegan and beyond. Glendale is located only 2 miles away and hosts a local shop and school. The nearest main village is that of Dunvegan a few miles away which has good local services including grocer’s shops, a baker’s shop, a modern medical centre, hotels, restaurants and a primary school. Portree the Islands capital is 22 miles to the southwest and offers excellent services including secondary schooling.


From Portree take the A87 and head north to Dunvegan. From Dunvegan, follow the signs for Glendale on the B884. Continue on the single track road for approximately 5 miles until you reach Colbost and pass by The Three Chimneys Restaurant. Continue along the uphill route until you approach a sign for Husabost on the right hand side. Drive down the hill, then up again. The road then levels off, and The Sheiling and 6 Totaig (look out for a wooden sign “The Sheiling”, and a sign for No. “6″ on the other side of the road). The Sheiling is exactly 0.7 miles from the turn-off for Husabost.
