Strathgorm Bed and Breakfast - Out and About
 


The Kilt rock near Staffin
   

There is so much to see and do on the Isle of Skye that its difficult to know where to begin...

Portree - The capital
At the centre of  Skye lies the scenic village and island capital of Portree. Here there are all the usual facilities you would expect of a small township including: Restaurants, Heritage Centres and Cinema, many Shops, Library, Harbour, Gallery, Pubs, Churches,  Medical facilities and much more ... 
 
In the South of the island is Sleat, The Garden of Skye. From Ardvasar the ferry sails to Mallaig and its here too that the Clan Donald is located. Beautiful gardens, restaurant, heritage centre. Just a few miles back towards the main road is the Gaelic College of Sabhal Mor Ostaig. Its also worth driving over the hill to Ord at this junction, the scenery is spectacular.
  
 
To the North of Portree lies the stunningly beautiful Trotternish peninsula with its amazing rock structures. If you have access to a car, don't miss the mountain road over the Quiairing. You should also see the Kilt Rock, find a few fossils, climb the gentle hill to The Old Man of Storr and work your way round to Uig where the ferry departs to the Outer Hebrides, namely Uist and Harris.
  
 
To the North West is Dunvegan with its superb castle and active seat of the Clan MacLeod. All along this road are sites of interest that the visitors enjoy so be sure to take your camera. From Dunvegan onwards towards Glendale you really see Skye and the wilderness at its best


 


The West side of Skye is tranquil place. Its reached from two roads: the Elgol road at Broadford Hotel; and the Sligachan - Glenbrittle road.  Dont miss the Minginish Peninsula and the home of Talisker Whisky - Carbost. This is a lovely road with little traffic and Glennnbrittle a truly magnificent walking destination.  

 

There is also Raasay with the distinctive remnants of an old volcano Dun Caan clearly visible and of course lastly and certainly not least are the Cuillin Hills - an almost constant feature of the Skye landscape.
