Tarskavaig is a crofting community scattered over the valley that descends to Tarskavaig Bay. Having driven over Sgurr na h-Iolaire (Hill of the Eagle), passing Achnacloich (Stone Field), the view over the township and out to the horizon is justifiably regarded as one of the most striking in Scotland. Beyond Tarskavaig Point lies the southwest coast of the Strathaird Peninsula, dotted with the crofts of Glasnakille. Further still lies the arc of the Red Cuillin, Bla Bheinn and the Black Cuillin, making a jagged and complex horizon. The isle of Rum lies directly before the bay, often with mists woven about its silhouette, and, depending on the visibility and your exact position, the isles of Soay, Eigg and Canna may be seen. Tarskavaig has an SSSI relating to the geology of Tarskavaig Moine Thrust which emerges at Achnacloich.

Historically this area was feuded over by the MacLeods and MacDonalds until, in the early 1600’s, a charter established MacDonald control and the chief of the clan settled at nearby Armadale; Tarskavaig first appeared on the clan estate records in 1718 and Lord MacDonald later laid out 31 small crofts where tenants were to eke out a meagre subsistence living from their land and by kelping. This is the largest community on the west side of the Sleat Peninsula, and has the largest proportion of Gaelic speakers there– nearby on the east side is Sabhal Mor Ostaig the highly successful Gaelic college. With a stunning outlook, tranquil white sands and unspoilt flora and fauna, Tarskavaig epitomises the beauty of the Scottish Isles.
