Tigh Fraoich

This house is in the area called Minginish, this area was cleared of the vast majority of its population between 1700’s to mid 1800’s. The area was resettled in the 1920’s. There are few of the orginal Skye families left, most having emigrated to Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South America or to the towns of the UK. 

As you explore Skye you will notice a mixture of Norse and Gaelic placenames giving a clue to the varied history of the Isle
