Your Skye Adventure.
Dunvegan is a fantastic location from which to explore all of Skye’s wonders, many of which are probably already on your bucket list for your Skye Trip.
If you’re not locked into a specific timeline already make sure you’ve allocated more days than you think so you really get “to see Skye” and not a whirlwind tour that will only skim the surface.
Explore the village of Dunvegan – its shops
Two Churches Walk – stroll through local & medieval history and the Millenium Stone
The Giant MacAskill Museum – artefacts and stories of the World’s tallest giant
Macleods Tables – a rewarding walk and the stuff of legends
Take a boat trip with Sea Skye Tours
Exploring the rest of North West Skye:
Visit the ingenious Skye Weavers creating pedal-powered tweed!
The Maidens Walk near Harlosh
Eat at Michelin Starred Lochbay Restaurant (Steinn, Waternish)
Learn about the tanning process at Skye Skyns
Walk, fish, capture the sunset at Neist Point and Neist Point Lighthouse
Heading to North Skye (35 – 50 mins drive):
Fairy Glen (stay longer than 20 minutes to dodge the minibuses during Summer season!)
Staffin Beach and the famous dinosaur footprints
Mealt Falls Viewpoint & Kilt Rock, an incredible Scottish waterfall and views on Skye.
The stunning Loch Coruisk. Access by boat from Elgol, or the long mountain walk from Glen Brittle.
