Some tips for your visit to Skye.
An outing not to be missed in Skye is to Loch Coruisk – whether on foot from Elgol (beware the Bad Step) or by the long walk to and from Sligachan; or maybe take the easier route – by boat from Elgol.
For those with a sense of adventure, Whitewave Outdoor Centre is 10 miles north of Kingsburgh and offers kayaking and other activities.
Other destinations include -
Coral Beach near Dunvegan.
The Fairy Pools near Carbost.
The Quiraing near Staffin.
A visit to Dunvegan Castle is a must. It’s rather easy to drive past Eilean Donan Castle on the mainland, 15 mins south of the Bridge, as it’s so close to Skye; but it's well worth a special visit.
Just 12 miles north of Kingsburgh is the small, but very special, Museum of Island Life and Flora MacDonald’s memorial stone, just a few minutes’ walk from the Museum.
The famous Three Chimneys Restaurant is the original fine dining on Skye and still the best; it’s an hour’s drive from Kingsburgh, but taxis can be arranged.
The Lochbay Restaurant in Stein is a 50 mins drive. Michael Smith the owner was on the TV show 'The Great British Chef' on a few occasions.
Edinbane Lodge and the Edinbane Inn are quite a bit nearer – 30 mins away.
It's hard to beat the local option, the Ferry Inn in Uig - just 10 min drive.
