About the neighbourhood
Crepigill is a small crofting hamlet situated approximately five miles northwest of Portree the capital of Skye. Taigh na h-aibhne is surrounded by rolling hills and tranquil countryside where you can expect to see cattle and sheep plus a good variety of wild flora and fauna. The magnificent Cuillin Mountain range can be seen from the sun deck, and on a clear day you can count ten peaks. The River Snizort at the bottom of the Croft, leads to Loch Snizort, where you can walk along the shore and on the way visit St Columba's Isle containg the remains of an ancient buriel chapel from 1498. Within walking distance is Skeabost Countryhouse Hotel where you can arrange golf, fishing and many more activities.
