Torrin is a pretty crofting township comprising a hamlet of traditional and modern built properties within walking distance of Loch Slapin and its shoreline, with the Loch itself providing for those with interest in water sports particularly kayaking whereby the many inlets and sea lochs can be explored. Skye is internationally recognised for outdoor pursuits and Torrin is an excellent base for climbers, hill walkers and other activities due the proximity of the Black and Red Cullins which dominate the skyline to create this picturesque valley. It is not unusual to spot a host of wildlife that is prevalent to the area such as eagles, hawks, deer and otters. Broadford is the nearest main village which is some 7 miles away and offers a full range of facilities which you would expect of a larger thriving settlement. Primary schooling is available in Elgol which is c. 7 miles away, with secondary schooling in Portree some 32 miles to the north. Overall Torrin is an ideal location for those interested in outdoor and nature pursuits and also provides the perfect area for those who prefer to relax due to the peaceful surroundings.


From Broadford take the road to Elgol. After c. 7 miles enter the township of Torrin and pass over the cattle grid. Continue on the road passing a few houses and see Blue Café on the left. The property is on the right opposite and directly off the township road with the name on the stone wall.
