WELCOME TO THE OLD CHURCH
A visit to The Old Church at Torrin is a visit to a land largely untouched by man. A place where mountain wilderness meets loch shore beauty with views of Blaven, so spectacular they will never leave you.
Few people can fail to be moved by this emotive valley surrounded by imposing peaks and filled with wildlife.
Many people visit this spectacular place to enjoy the peace and tranquillity it offers but few have the opportunity to stay and appreciate it from dawn till dusk.
The Old Church is a superbly converted cottage providing spacious luxury accommodation for up to eight people. It has been lovingly equipped to create a warm and comfortable home from home. It has four bedrooms and bathrooms, a fully fitted kitchen with Rayburn, sitting room with awe inspiring views, dining room and separate reading room.
This incredible property nestles at the foot of the Red Cuillin, whilst the Black Cuillin (Blaven and Clach Glas) dominate the opposite side of this stunning valley.
The land throughout this magical valley is largely unfenced meaning exploration in all directions is unhindered; should you wish to climb the stunning peaks or simply discover the hidden waterfalls and varied fauna that fill the area as Hawks and Golden Eagles circle above.
Detailed information and fantastic pictures of Blaven, the incredible peak that draws many to Skye let alone this valley, can be found at www.blaven.com which also has more facts about the history of the village of Torrin.
The easily accessible shore line of Loch Slapin is only a short stroll away; otters and seals live in the loch and are frequently spotted by guests.
The Old Church provides a fantastic opportunity to sleep within the shadow of these most stunning of mountains, enjoying and exploring the true wilderness of Skye without ever having to travel.
We recommend you click here, on the John Muir Trust where you will find in depth information about the land surrounding The Old Church.
Conceive these mountains if you can – rib them with gleaming waterfalls, paint them with ever changing hues and fill the intervening spaces with gorges, ravines and glens, dashed with purple gloom and abysses filled with steaming mists, and you have some idea of the wondrous Cuillin.
