The township of Fasach is situated within Glendale on the Duirinish Peninsula of Skye. Although still a very traditional crofting township, due to its fertile soil, the whole glen was removed from crofting tenure some years ago.
Glendale is an 18,956 acre estate that extends from Neist Point in the West, Loch Pooltiel in the North and Loch Dunvegan in the East. To the South it covers vast acres of moorland, skirting the slopes of MacLeod's Tables and extending almost down to MacLeod's Maidens at Idrigill.
The name 'Glendale' is the anglicised version of its gaelic name, Gleann Dail, which means 'valley with level fields by a river'
The village of Lephin offers a limited number of facilities including a post office and general store, further facilities are available in Dunvegan approximately 7 miles away. Secondary education is provided in Portree, the principal town on the island, a bus service operates to transport secondary pupils to and from the high school.
The land offered for sale is located within the heart of the popular township of Glendale. One boundary is formed by the pretty, meandering River Hamera and another by a well-established copse of indigenous trees. The site extends to approx 1.323 acres/0.535 ha (to be confirmed by title deed plan) and is split into two sections by the lower Fasach township road. There currently exists planning permission for erection of a four bedroom detached family home under reference number 13/03760/fulsl (re-newed December 2013 under reference: 13/03760/ful for a further 3 years). Part of the land could be utilised for a poly tunnel and/or vegetable patch.
