Nestled in a serene glen just a stone’s throw away from Portnalong and the enchanting Cuillin mountains, The Tin Church offers a unique holiday retreat. This charming 1950s mission church, spanning 34 sq m, underwent a complete sensitive renovation in 2020 by its architect owners, preserving its original corrugated iron exterior while transforming its interior into a modern but cosy timber-lined one-bedroom property. It comprises an open-plan kitchen and living space with a wood-burning stove, a double bedroom, a modern bathroom with a walk-in shower, and a compact utility room. A sliding glass door opens onto a south-facing deck with outdoor seating, perfect for soaking up the landscape. The Tin Church is an ideal getaway for those wishing to take time out to be creative, read or write.
Situated an hour’s drive from the Skye Bridge, The Tin Church is the perfect spot to explore the Isle of Skye. There are scenic walks directly from the Church, leading you to a sandy beach, hillside trails, or even a coastal broch. The village of Carbost, just 4 miles away, is the closest place to find amenities. The Old Inn serves food and features live music. Caora Dhubh Coffee Company is an excellent spot for coffee enthusiasts, and if you enjoy fresh seafood, The Oyster Shed is a recommended option. Carbost also has a Community Shop for your essential needs. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore Skye’s whisky heritage at the renowned Talisker Distillery, where you can take tours and sample Skye’s finest whiskies.
