The Coigach Peninsula is a part of Gaelic-speaking, Western Scotland that until recent times was comparatively inaccessible. It was inhabited mainly by Mackenzies, MacLeods and Campbells, who lived from crofting, (i.e. subsistence-farming and fishing) with anything from the outside world that was required being brought in by boat.
The Summer Isles
There’s lots of exciting activity on Tanera Mor (the largest of the Summer Isles) which has been sold to a successful businessman who is passionate about Tanera’s natural beauty, authenticity and history.
Work is now well underway to upgrade much of the islands infrastructure and renovate the properties. This is part of an ambitious and exciting project that is already bringing significant benefits to the local community. Everyone will be keenly watching progress over the coming years and a recent open day was enjoyed by more than 400 members of the local community!
