Learn about Skye's history


Sitting under the Skye bridge with excellent views, this little village holds a lot more than you bargain for.  A small island fishing community, with a couple of pubs, an old castle ruin, and some beautiful nature walks. It also makes a great base for exploring the rest of the island.


This tour is an excellent introduction to Skye and is best to do when you first arrive.  You will learn so much about the history and culture, and get to hang out with someone local to the area.
