  • This castle ruin is in a stunning location, but as is often typical on Skye, is now being left to slowly crumble and fall into the sea. For safety reasons, it is no longer possible to access the ruin, but during my visit, one or two disgruntled Americans who "...had travelled 10,000 miles to be there" vaulted the fence and explored at their own risk. There are hundreds, if not thousands of spectacular views on Skye, so in its current sorry state this castle isn't really worth making a special trip.
  • Breathtaking views. One of the most picturesque places on Earth.
  • Incredible sunset views here - if you're on Skye with good weather DO NOT MISS THIS!
  • Stunning views, high exposure to the elements. Need to tell through a field for 3-5 minutes to actually approach the castle.
  • You can't really come close to the ruins as they are classed as unstable. So, not really much to do there
