[Loch Harport at Carbost]

A rare outpost of civilisation in this part of Skye, Carbost is the largest settlement on Minginish. The village occupies an idyllic spot on gently curving Loch Harport, with attractive waterfalls on the Carbost Burn just above easily accessed from the nearby road. The water's source is the high ground around Cnoc nan Speireag, and also feeds Talisker Distillery. This famous distillery - dating from 1830 - is named after the stormy bay to the west, and remains one of the most popular visitor attractions on Skye.
