The Hebrides region
Ideally located for exploring the Trotternish Peninsula and its famous geological sights such as the Quirang, Kilt Rock and the Old Man of Storr, the crofting hamlet of Staffin is only 15 miles from Portree and 16 miles from the ferry port of Uig - gateway to the Outer Hebrides.
The Isle of Skye boasts some of the finest restaurants in Scotland, most of which offer wonderfully fresh seafood. Please look at my website for full details of recommended restaurants.
The Isle of Skye really is a walkers paradise but there are so many other things to do - cycling, fishing, horse-riding, golf, diving, kayaking just to name a few.
A Boat Trip off the Isle of Skye is a wonderful way to appreciate the spectacular views - you may even be lucky enough to see Whales, Seals, Dolphins, Basking Sharks and numerous sea-birds.
Dunvegan castle is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in Northern Scotland and is well worth a visit together with a boat ride to see the seals.
Talisker Whisky is the only distillery on the Isle of Skye, set on the shores of Lock Harport and boasting dramatic views of the Cuillins.
The Highland Games are great fun to watch and are usually held in Portree in August each year.
