Things To Do In the Isle Of Skye When Holidaying 

Armadale Castle

This is one of the most aesthetically pleasing places on the Isle of Skye. Explore over 1,500 years old history of Clan Donald. The Gulf Stream forms a mild climate, turning the 20,000 acres of land and gardens into a floral paradise.

Point of Sleat

You will not find more dramatic views in Skye than in this place. It takes around three to four hours to reach the lighthouse. It’s not just a beautiful place to explore but also to explore marine wildlife. 

Dunvegan Castle

Your trip to Skye cannot be complete without visiting the mythical Dunvegan castle. You can explore the stunning gardens, have local food, and even catch a boat to explore the Loch Dunvegan seal colony. 

The Oyster Shed

This is one of the best places to have local produce like scallops, crabs, salmon, and, most importantly, oysters. This place will give you an insight into Scottish culture, and you can even witness the sunset over Loch Harport. 

Staffin Beach

This beach sits underneath the prominent Trotternish ridge and is one of the most interesting beaches of Skye. It is the perfect spot to spend quality time with your entire family while exploring. 

Portree Boat Trip

You must go boating to explore the nearby islands. A glass of wine, locally sourced seafood, and a beautiful view will make this experience wholesome. 

Sea Kayaking

This is a must-try activity in Skye if you want to escape the crowds and noise. You will get opportunities to explore some natural wonders and wildlife. Kayaking is the only way you can experience some of these wonders.
