Our daughter is astudent in Eco & Wildlife. Since she started this study, we look different at these kind of 'attractions' It's not big, but it is a valuable and cosy place. The staff explained everything very clear. They do a good jog over there. Even if you are affraid of snakes, go there. You do not need to touch... More

My kids loved it! The guide was very passionate and knowledgeable. Although small, you could be here for hours just asking questions!

A nice place to stop for a while, and has a nice little café alongside for a refreshment/snack. Quite a small centre, but it has quite a lot packed in from frilled lizards to iguanas and snakes. all are behind glass unless taken out by the handler for presentations. They are very informative and if you want you can also... More

We visited Skye Serpentarium whilst spending an afternoon in Broadford with 3 children. It was fantastic! From the moment we walked in we were greeted by a jolly chap (Billy?) who showed so much enthusiasm! We were intrigued for over an hour hearing stories & information about where they came from etc. The children learnt lots about the residents at... More

We stopped here and had a tour around and we were able to hold and stroke a snake, we purchased some snake skin also in the shop which was not expensive. We also went to the cafe next door for some Skye ice-cream which was really nice and the staff were very pleasnat.

This is a very small attraction, however, it's well worth a visit, the kids loved looking at the different snakes and reptiles and we all enjoyed holding the snake, the staff were very friendly and informative, this will change your views on reptiles!

£4.50 for half a dozen specimens and a talk by an expert only intersted in one guest. Nice tea bar but stay away from the inside and the poor exhibition

The serpentarium is small. But so are most things on the island (except the scenery!). It is a beautifully well appointed animal sanctuary. These animals would probably not have survived if it wasn't for the Serpantarium. The biggest charm of this place is the very enthusiastic and knowledgable staff. Happy to share their knowledge with you. My 16 month old... More

Highly recommended and well worth supporting. This reptile sanctuary is home to a number of snakes, lizards, tortoises and frogs, many of which have been rescued. My two sons and I were given a full guided tour by a member of staff who was very knowledgeable and clearly cared deeply about the reptiles at the centre. We were also allowed... More
