Talisker Distillery, Skye’s only distillery, and an inn which has regular live music are only a short drive away. Just a five-minute walk from Skye Eco Pod, you can sample home cooked food and an excellent selection of whisky and gin. The walking is superb for all levels, with Talisker Bay, Glenbrittle Beach, Fairy Pools, the Cuillin Mountains and so much more. A trip to Dunvegan Castle and Coral Beach, Neist Point Lighthouse or the beautiful Waternish Peninsula are all recommended and are all on the west side of the island. Take a sea trip from Portree to see the varied sea and bird life and also enjoy the beauty of the rugged coastline. To the north of Portree is the Trotternish Peninsula, which boasts some of Skye’s most stunning scenery. To the south of the island is Broadford, where you will find ‘The Garden of Skye’. Here you can visit the ruins of Armadale Castle and its lovely gardens. Skye has so much to offer for the outdoor enthusiast, with hill walking, fishing, boat trips, kayaking, pony trekking, as well as the opportunity to discover the many craft/art galleries and restaurants for a more relaxing time and to be awestruck by the dramatic scenery.

Guest Comments

"a lovely stay but too short"

Ian, August 2021

"We absolutely love the place the pod itself is much bigger then the traditional pod. Everything is a normal size and there is enough space for relaxing and feeling like at home. There are all facilities in place (apart from washing machine, but I believe this can be resolve in a host house). We didn't need washing machine, so all other stuff is more than enough. The area around the pod is so lovely and enough space for parking. We spent a week there and never had a better sleep and so fresh air. The combination of Isle of Sky scineries and pod location and facilities made our holiday. Jen thank you so much and we will be back"

David, June 2021

"Just back from the eco pod. Was amazing so much bigger than I expected. Great base to explore the isle of sky. We will be back"

Ryan, November 2020

"Excellent accommodation which was spotlessly clean. Jan was helpful and readily contactable if needed. The pod was warm and cosy affording excellent views across the beautiful countryside. We would thoroughly recommend this tranquil retreat."

Stephen, October 2020

"Although I awarded 10 for local amenities the reason I booked the eco pod at Port na long because I do not require ‘amenities’. It was booked for its unique position on Skye."

Stephen , October 2020

"A great place to stay for an Isle of Skye holiday. The pod is well equipped and is deceptively spacious. It is very eco friendly, keeps warm without effort and I would imagine it would be warm even in extreme weather. Jan the owner is very helpful and easily contacted.Go, its excellent !"
