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

We discovered Skye Silver on our second vistit to Skye in the early 90's and loved it. And we still do. We like the silver jewelry and always find something to bring back home from our holidays

There were some nice pieces of jewellery, very well made but nothing to really tempt me to buy unfortunately.
