Both the Talisker Distillery, Skye’s oldest whisky distillery, and Carbost Inn (which has regular live music) are only a short distance away. The Minginish Peninsula has much to offer and there is superb walking for all abilities, as well as the Cullins mountain range for experienced climbers. Of interest too, are Talisker Bay, Glenbrittle Beach and the Fairy Pools. Various craft shops and art galleries offer good browsing for visitors, but it is the scenery and the changing light that makes this area so dramatic. Take a trip to Dunvegan with its castle and gardens, and from there take a walk along the coast to the Coral Beach – a really super day out.
Visit the dramatic scenery of the Trotternish Ridge and the Old Man of Storr to the north east and on to Portree, the island’s colourful and bustling ‘capital’. You will find a great range of shops, art galleries and craft shops here along with some great places where you can have something to eat and drink. Explore some of the many quiet, unspoilt beaches where you may catch a glimpse of the varied array of bird and wildlife. Towards the southern end of the island you will reach the Sleat Peninsula, known as the ‘Garden of Skye’, where you can visit Armadale Castle and gardens. The whole island is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise with many activities available, including kayaking, sea cruises, fishing trips, hill walking and mountain climbing in the dramatic Cuillins, as well as mountain biking on some great tracks. The less energetic can sit back and relax watching the ever-changing scenery from the comfort of their chair. Beach 5 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
