Arguably one of the most spectacular areas on Skye, the dramatic scenery is ever changing. This is an area steeped in history – you can visit Flora MacDonald’s grave in nearby Kilmuir.
Also worth a visit is the Skye Museum of Island Life where old thatched ‘black houses’ can be seen as they would have looked in the early part of last century. This part of Skye is a magnet for geologists and archaeologists. The rock formations date back to the ice age and dinosaur fossils were found here recently.
The ferry to the Outer Hebrides leaves from Uig and you can visit the island of Harris with its white sandy beaches and Lewis with the famous Callanish Standing Stones.
Gourmets are well catered for too – there are several quality restaurants and pubs in the area including an award winning country house hotel where visitors are made very welcome. Well stocked village shops are available in Staffin and Uig. Supermarkets, banks and a wider selection of shops are available in Portree
