The crofting township of Brogaig lies immediately to the north of Staffin, some 18 miles from Portree, the principal town on the island.
Staffin offers a number of facilities including restaurants and shops located in the village. A primary school is also located in Staffin providing education in both Gaelic and English Medium, secondary education is provided in Portree some 18 miles south and a school bus service operates to ferry pupils to and from school.
Burnbank is a traditional, double fronted, stone built croft house, which enjoys views towards the Trotternish Ridge, the Quiraing and Staffin Bay. Although the property requires some modernisation and upgrading, Burnbank retain much of its original charm with 4 panel wooden doors, wooden floors and sash windows. The oil fired Rayburn in the kitchen adds to the warmth and charm of the property, as do the exposed stone walls in the lounge and dining room.
A village shop previously traded from the attached 1 ½ storey extension of the property and still has its connecting door via the main house dining room. It is currently used for storage but still has a separate front entrance and gate. This could potentially be converted for use as holiday accommodation or could be incorporated into the main living area to greatly increase the proportions of the house (subject to current Planning conditions).
Another advantage of Burnbank is the detached, two storey Workshop which is currently used as a garage but could potentially be converted into further accommodation (subject to current Planning conditions). This has a separate electricity supply and a driveway with double gates leading from the road.
