Ashaig Beach (Aiseag in Gaelic, meaning ferry)

Ashaig is a small, ancient, coastal settlement found next to Upper and Lower Breakish, close to Broadford. Ashaig Airfield, a private airstrip, lies adjacent to the lovely, large sandy beach which is exposed at low tide. With a scattering of rocky outcrops and small islets on which sheep graze and otter, seals and wild birds can be seen, Ashaig beach looks over towards Applecross on the mainland and, to the west, back over a broad vista of Skye itself, Beinn na Caillich on the horizon, and also to the Isles of Raasay, Scalpay and Pabay.

St. Maelrubha (c 642 – 722), an Irish apostle who established a monastery in Applecross, is strongly connected to Ashaig, where it is said that he would preach from Creag an leabhair (the rock of the book), which is clearly visible below the western end of the airstrip. An ancient holy spring is now a covered well and lies beside the old burial ground, which is still in use, just above the beach. Commonwealth war graves here mark the final resting place of some of those lost in the tragic 1942 accidental sinking of HMS Curacao.
