Skye Silver is a shop filled with beautiful hand made silver jewelry. I had a lot of trouble deciding what I wanted to take home with me, mainly because my jewelry box is no where near big enough to fit in all the things I would want. The sales couple were delightful: friendly, helpful, letting you try on half the... More

This is just one of those little (ex schoolhouse) buildings that you drive past on the way to Neist Point, i suspect most carry on with the drive but we decided to stop. We had no intention of buying (but did end up with my wife owning a pair of beautiful Abalone and Silver Earrings). The display of hand made... More

A wonderful welcome from a Scottish man polishing silver, happy to talk to us about the designer or let us try on anything we liked. The pieces were well made using local inspiration. My father chose a beautiful ring for my mum for their anniversary and my sister made them drive back to get her something too!

We visited on our way to lunch. The items are all produced to individual designs. The staff were friendly and helpful. We purchased a pendant. We did not feel pressured to buy and felt it was a lovely place to buy silver

This shop offers beautiful rings, earrings and necklaces. I'm glad we stopped when we came back from Neist Point. Here you can find some unique pieces. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

How can you possibly chose one item from such a stunning range of silver. The shop was due to open in 3 days time, but the owners still painting and preparing for opening for the summer let us in to chose our souvenier of the island. They and their beautiful border collie made us very welcome.

My wife and I always call here on our wedding anniversary to purchase a quality souvenir of our holiday. We are always made to feel welcome and never pressured to buy. If you are in the area make time to call and you will not be disappointed.

I have visited Skye many times. This time with my girlfriend from USA, her first time in Scotland. I am led to believe the elderly gentleman who was running the shop last week is not the regular proprietor. There were customers in the shop when we arrived. We were not welcomed just looked at suspiciously as soon as we entered.... More
