The Croft

Ach na skia is a 7 acre croft in the crofting community by the sea at Back of Keppoch, a mile north of the village of Arisaig. Horses and cows graze ours and the neighbouring fields.

To the front (W.) are the islands of Eigg and Rum. To th N.W. the jagged peaks of the Cuillin ridge on Skye loom behind the Sleat peninsular. Creag Mhor towers behind the croft. Part of the peat bog to the north east is designated as a S.S.S.I. The main road, by-passing Arisaig, runs across the moss bog half a mile behind the croft.

The peat bog is home to a large number of wild flowers, including some rare species, such as the wild orchid, and also the carnivorous butterwort.

Flora around Arisaig

All our properties have extensive views and you are almost guaranteed to be treated to a gorgeous sunset or two from early summer on. Due to the northerly latitude, in June the sun hardly sets, but skirts around just below the horizon.
