This (still) privately owned castle and gardens is well worth a visit if you are on Skye. The castle is packed full of historical stories, paintings and artefacts and includes original letters to the family from Dr Samuel Johnson and Walter Scott, plus other correspondence...More

A must visit if you go to Skye. A wonderful Scottish castle in a beautiful setting. Make sure you allow a couple of hours to wander around the peaceful setting of the castle gardens. Good value for money.
Even if you are not named Mc.Leod, this is a property worth a visit. The castle itself has been built in stages, the oldest dating back to the 12th century. Much of the castle is not open to tour, but what is gives insight to...More

This beautiful estate has fantastic preservation on the inside, with handouts in most rooms detailing what you are seeing.
Stroll outside into the gardens for a leisurely walk and then down to the waters edge to see the seals basking in the sun.

This attraction can accommodate a very large amount of people. You will not have a problem getting tickets at the location when you arrive. There is no way they would reach the limit for visitors at any one time. It's huge and relatively out of the way for many travellers to go. Be sure to leave yourself enough time to tour. They close the gates and ask you to leave by 5:00 and the souvenire shop closed at 4. We only arrived just before 4 so we had to rush and didn't get to enjoy the amazing gardens surrounding the castle. It's well worth spending at least 2 hours there.
