FISKAVAIG (Norse: Fish Bay)

PORTNALONG (Gaelic: Port of boats)
A picturesque settlement on the shores of Loch Harport. After the first World War a number of families from Lewis and Harris were re-settled here. On Skye they were able to earn a living through weaving, fishing and crofting. Every year until 1939 a gathering was held in Portnalong and woven goods were offered for sale.
