Not really a place, but two: Upper and Lower Milovaig that are situated on the Duirinish Peninsula in North West Skye

This is a quiet end of Skye beyond the journey of most visitors who get as far as Colbost or Glendale before turning back. These two crofting communities overlook the sea in a relatively uninhabited part of Skye. As with all the rest of Scotland, these lands were once much more inhabited but clearances here as elsewhere left it as we find it today and have left tragic chronicles. Round the coast at Lorgill in 1830 all the crofters were turned off the land and sent away except for those older than 70 who were sent to the poorhouse.

The village are part of the Glendale Estate which was one of the first  community owned estates in Scotland
