Out & About
Discover places to see and things to do whilst in and around Isle of Skye, Scotland to truly enhance your stay come rain or shine!
Vast and Varied Vistas The island's awe-inspiring scenery is without doubt its main attraction. From the stark and mist-enshrouded mountains to sparkling sea lochs, shell-scattered beaches and velvet moorland bursting with wildlife; it's easy to appreciate why The Isle of Skye is one of Scotland’s top three tourist destinations. While the madding crowds tend to flock to Portree, and Dunvegan, venture to the farther-flung corners of this fair isle and find beauty in somewhere undiscovered.
The Cuillins The Cuillin Hills are the British Isles’ most formidable mountain range, a Mecca for experienced mountaineers and rock climbers who dare to hike its jagged peaks and rocky terrain. While is it no place for the novice, there are several local outfits who offer expert instruction for the less experienced who still want to try their hand at the higher routes.
Intoxicating Taste of The Highlands The Talisker Distillery in Cabost is a must! Sample their premier single malt whisky and see why its unique maritime character makes it a world-renowned tipple.
Sci-Fi Scenery Rest weary feet and discover the stunning landscapes by taking to four wheels. Sci-Fi fans will love a drive through the Old Man of Storr, which famously featured in the opening scene of Ridley Scott’s recent blockbuster Prometheus. Travel north and discover vantage points from which to admire tumbling waterfalls and far-reaching panoramas that are out of this world. Afternoon drives do not get much better than this.
Rainy Days This beautiful island enjoys a varied and often wild climate which makes the landscape all the more dramatic. On wet days when you don’t fancy facing the elements, why not take a trip to the Museum of Island Life at Kilmuir? This preserved township of ancient thatched cottages will transport you to times past, giving a unique insight into what life used to be like on the island. There are also several notable castles, crofting museums and indoor attractions to keep culture vultures appeased.
Nearest Loch This luxury highland chapel lies right by the shores of Loch Harport.
