The Trotternish Ridge dominates the landscape and offers some of the best hillwalking and views around, from the Quiraing in the north to the Old Man of Storr further south. Here you will find the buzzards; falcons and golden eagles that make this part of the country their home. The small crofting community of Tote sits on the A855 under the shelter of the Ridge. Local amenities can be found in the village of Staffin, approx. 8 miles north, including primary school offering English and Gaelic medium, grocery shop with petrol pumps, community centre with shop, hotel and cafe. There is also a pretty beach and slipway in Staffin. Portree, the island's capital, is approximately 12 miles south.
