North of Skye Croft lies Uig, a small harbour town set in a stunning sheltered bay. From here you can take a ferry trip over to Tarbert on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides (the mountains of which can be seen from Skye Croft on a clear day) or to Lochmaddy in North Uist, another of the Outer Hebridean islands.
South of Skye Croft are the dramatic Cuillins, an impressive and rocky mountain range known the world over amongst rock climbers, walkers, hikers and ramblers. The Cuillin range dominates the skyline and indeed can be seen from Skye Croft looking South from the garden. The two Cuillin ranges are very distinctive in character, the Red Cuillins of red granite are rounded compared to the ragged volcanic Black Cuillins.
Elsewhere on the Isle of Skye, small towns and pretty villages offer an abundance of traditionally made crafts alongside local produce such as ales and whisky. Visit the islands castles and museums so you can discover the legends, history, clans. Experience Gaelic culture and enjoy local arts. The Isle of Skye is a romantic destination, full of timeless pleasure, providing you with an unforgettable holiday experience.
For day trips there are many centres that will let you explore the history and culture of Skye. Or why not visit one of the local potters, painters or silversmiths that are dotted around the island.
A full information folder will be in the croft with details on what’s on, what’s round and about, maps, walks and things to do!
