Welcome to Plockton Taigh Gael – Views to Rassay and Skye
Taigh Gael – Highland holiday cottages
An Ideal base for touring Skye and the Highlands
Taigh Gael is one of two newly built, modern holiday cottages with their own gardens. They have been specifically designed to meet the needs of the holidaymaker. Both cottages are well-equipped and pet-friendly.
They are perfect for a quiet relaxing vacation or as a base to enjoy wonderful scenery and exhilarating outdoor pursuits of the local area and beyond.
both the holiday cottages are situated in the small village of Achnandarach, whose name means ‘forest wind’, and nearby there are stunning views over to Rassay, Skye and the mountains beyond.
Only a mile away is the village of Plockton, regarded by many as the most attractive village in the West Highlands. Plockton is quiet through most of the year but is a popular destination for visitors in the summer months, particularly during its long established, small boat sailing regatta fortnight in August.
Taigh Gael and it’s sister cottage, Tulach Beag, are rented out throughout the year.
Change over day is Saturday with check in after 3pm, check out by 10am on day of departure.

The surrounding area.
There are many fine low level and coastal walks in and around the village where otters and birdlife can be spotted. For the more active, sailing, kayaking, mountain biking, fishing and hill walking are particularly popular with Torridon and Kintail only a short journey away. The Plockton district is an area with interests for everyone.
At nearby Kyle of Lochalsh is the bridge over to the beautiful Isle of Skye which boasts spectacular mountain, cliff and seascapes and some unique geological formations. From there, take a boat trip from Elgol on the Bella Jane to spot seals, dolphins or whales or to visit the elusive and magical Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Cuillin mountains.
