  • Fantastic little informative place. With a charismatic owner who is chatty and very obliging. He allows you to ask questions and take photos. This is my second visit.
  • The Giant Angus MacAskill Museum must been seen. Extraordinary Collection. Angus was the tallest man of his time and very strong due to his size. The museum tells the story of his life and shows furniture made for his enourmous measure. The museum is run by friendly Peter MacAskill.

Where to stay in Isle of Skye

If you have a car, you can stay almost anywhere on Isle of Skye and still be able to access the major highlights on a day trip. The main town of Portree offers the widest range of options, with a host of bed and breakfasts and inns offering cozy rooms in well-restored old houses. There, you'll enjoy views over Loch Portree and convenient access to any number of pubs and restaurants in town. For something a bit quieter, consider the coastal town of Dunvegan. If visiting during the warmer months--between June and September--reserve your room in advance.
