  • I really wish that the National Trust, Historic Scotland or another organisation would support these historical relics on the Isle of Skye. Dunscaith is a tremendous place to visit but the access...  more »
  • We only stopped on the turnout to view the castle, as it was raining (surprise!) and we did not have the inclination to walk all the way out to the point. The view is is beautiful and worth a few...  more »
  • It was absolutely beautiful, though the crossing to get over the drawbridge to the ruins was interesting. All the boards have rotted away, so you have to scoot along the edge, over a roughly 9ft...  more »

  • Off the beaten track with amazing views. An abandoned castle that you can get on top of if you don't mind climbing a few rocks. Great views and amazing sheep herding place. The road there isn't as scary as most people here say, the typical 1 lane with passing points. The walk may be a little bit muddy though 😊
  • It was a little off the beaten path, but a lovely place with views across to the Cullins. Not much left of the castle, but the area was well worth the visit and it was a lovely drive. We had plenty of sun and it was still very marshy. If the weather is bad, I might hold out for a pretty day for this one.
  • A wonderful visit.Absolutely stunning views in a place steeped in history. It's worth having a read up about the warrior princess!. Be prepared for windy wind!..
  • Another castle added to my list , this is only the remains of a castle and is no way an outstanding site to visit on it own. We made this stop a part of our whistle stop tour of the Island. If you are a castle or old ruins fan then this will be a must add to your bucket list if you are in the area.
  • Getting there requires driving across some challenging roads, but the experience is great. Wonderful views, and a ruined castle on a crag overlooking the sea. Terrain is very boggy, though, so be prepared
