About the neighborhood
10 minute walk to the pier with mackerel fishing at high tide. A beach can be found at Glendale or further afield is the coral beach at Claigan, Dunvegan.
There are many enjoyable walks near the cottage including a lovely walk out to Neist Point lighthouse, where if you are lucky you may spot Minke whales and other wild life. If you enjoy swimming outdoors then try Glenbrittle’s magical Faerie Pools, or try kayaking, sailing, fishing or scuba diving in the crystal clear water around Skye's coastline. There are numerous boat trips around Skye to see the wildlife and other islands including a trip on the Bella Jane from Elgol to access Loch Corruisk.
