The quality of the food was excellent and it offers the usual range of options. Easy to spot on the main road almost across from the person station.

From the first visit to the serpentarium I fell in love with it and decided to sponsor 'gorm' the iguana. Now having visited over a handful of times I could never get bored, every visit is different and the staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Through hearing all the animals were rescued I decided to raise money through making jewellery... More

This was a small, privately owned, local attraction. Sadly, with the retirement of the owners both the Serpentarium and its ajoining cafe closed and have now been replaced by a delicatessen.

This is a good attraction if you like Snakes, Frogs & everything in between. A chance to hold the Animals and a chance to sponsor them.

I am so sad they closed the Skye Serpentarium. A friend of mine who was terrified of snakes held a snake here and got rid of her fear. Lovely spot for reptile lovers alike!

A room full of wonderful creatures. Thoroughly enjoyed by my family. However, my grandmother who lives on the island has said it is being closed for new office space. Boo!

We popped into here before we left Skye and I am so glad we did. The kids loved it and even got to hold a snake! It is a shame that it is closing as it is a nice attraction on Skye.

The children really love this attraction and we have been 3 times now. The staff are very knowledgeable and shelter reptiles and amphibians that have been confiscated by customs. They talk a lot about the care the animals need and take time to explain the individual stories behind each of the animals they look after. They offer you the chance... More

Stopped in by here on a recent trip to Skye, am glad that we did. Its not a big place by any means, but a very interesting visit. The staff are very knowledgeable and passionate about the reptiles there, and it does house a lot of reptiles for its size, so the £4.50 (adult) entrance fee is worth it. I'm... More

This was a great experience. The staff were very knowledgable and friendly. It is small, so you can walk round it in seconds. I would recommend that you take your time and ask the staff any questions you might have.
