Things to see & do on the Isle of Skye

In addition to wandering around the fascinating and wonderful cities and villages, wining, dining and sight seeing, there are plenty of things to see and do for the whole family on Skye.


Resting in the sea loch between Waternish and Durinish is the large village of Dunvegan towards the north end of the island. This area of Skye is basically 3 distinct peninsulas known as Trotternish, Waternish and Duirinish which boast towering cliffs that drop off into the sea. Dunvegan is another popular place on Skye for renting a cottage given the large selection of cafes, bars and restaurants in the town.


The small settlement of Sligachan looks on to the Cuillin mountains on the west side of Skye. It's a place that you'll see on countless postcards - the wild river Sligachan, Sgurr-Nan-Gillean and Glen Sligachan. If you like adventure and mesmorising scenery, Sligachan is a must see village.
