The Vikings were the first to appreciate
the advantages of the small township on the Isle of Skye known today as 'Portnalong'.
At the time the attraction was the safe and sheltered anchorage at the
entrance of Loch Harport.
It was not, however, until the end of
the First World War that a thriving community was established when weaving
/ crofting families from the outer isles of Lewis and Harris were
encouraged to settle the area.
||One of these settlers was Alan MacLeod, a man who
had the vision to build 'Taigh Ailean' (Gaelic for "Alan's
House"), a home and house which, of its period, was
significant both in size and grandeur.
Today, the 'Taigh Ailean Hotel' is a remote and
intimate inn offering a highly personal service for guests who treasure
those quiet moments.
|The warmth and hospitality of 'Taigh
coupled with the fact that there are only five bedrooms, will have you
believing that you are participating in a country house party where
brisk walks are always followed by scrumptious meals and pleasant
conversation (in the Winter by the warm log fire!).
The bedrooms vary in style of furnishing, decor and
ambience, making each room delightfully different. With a
combination of family, double and triple ensuite rooms, you can be sure
that your accommodation requirements can be met.
And for that extra special treat, why not stay in
one of the two splendid rooms in the Croft Annex,
with beautiful views over Loch
The 'Taigh Ailean Hotel' is a member of the 'Green
Tourism' scheme. Rates vary, but the
en-suite rooms average 25.00 per person per night (winter) and 35.00 per person per night
(summer). All include
a hearty highland breakfast. Reductions are
available for longer stays and seasonal specials.
