The area is linked to the historic, romantic legend of Bonnie Prince Charlie and Flora MacDonald, who is buried in Kilmuir Cemetery beside the Museum of Island Life. Whitewave Activity Centre is within easy reach and offers a wide range of activities including kayaking, archery, abseiling/mountain climbing. The dramatic landscape of the Quiraing and the Old Man of Storr have excellent hillwalking. The Staffin Museum is a must as it contains excellent collections of local geological and fossil specimens.

The Faerie Glen is an excellent place to take children, the glen’s geological formations are fascinating.
