Situated on a sweeping bay, this picturesque fishing village is surrounded by the splendid scenery of the Trotternish peninsula and lies close to the Quirang, an area of strange rock formations and pinnacles.

One of its most notable features is The Needle, a 120ft pinnacle. The 160ft black basalt column known as the Old Man of Storr lies south on the road to Portree. The bay is famous for its dinosaur footprints and has yielded numerous dinosaur fossils, some of which can be seen at the community-run Staffin Museum.
