Explore the Isle of Skye - a Land of Giants, Faeries & Dinosaurs

The Isle of Skye has plenty to see and do, with mountains, castles, dinosaurs and faeries all waiting to be discovered.

 

Crofting through the ages

The Skye Museum of Island life is a short walk away which depicts crofting through the ages and is well worth a visit. You will see what Bothan Eorna was like before it was renovated and extended.

Beside this is the grave of Flora Macdonald, Bonnie Prince Charlie’s Saviour and in the local graveyard you will also spot the stunningly simple gravestone of fashion designer Alexander MacQueen.

Camus Mor Bay

The lovely bay of Camus Mor is close by where you can launch your own canoe or try your hand at fishing, basking sharks can sometimes been seen in the bay.

The ruins of Duntulm Castle, the seat of the Clan MacDonald of Sleat is also nearby. Whitewave, Skye’s outdoor activity centre is on

the road towards Uig, and here you can try windsurfing, archery and canoeing.

UIg

Uig, approximately 6 miles from Bothy Eorna, is the nearest village where you can get the ferry to the outer isles of Harris and Lewis, and Uist.

Day trips can be taken throughout the summer months.

The Skye Brewery and Uig Pottery can be found here alongside a few shops, hotels, and a filling station.

Fairy Glen

Just outside Uig and heading in the direction of Portree you can find the Fairy Glen. A must see when you are in the area.

Portree

Portree, the capital of the island, is approximately 35 minutes from the Bothy and here you will find the Co-op supermarket,

various shops, banks and hotels. There is also a swimming pool and library attached to the High School.

Also pay a visit to the Isle of Skye Soap Company shop in the town centre.

Talisker Distillery

Further afield you can visit Talisker Distillery, book a tour and watch whisky being made and enjoy a wee dram of the Island’s finest afterwards.

On from there, why not visit the Oyster Shed which is up the hill behind the distillery, and sample some of the islands seafood.
