What to do

When you stay at "Lochearn" you are within easy reach of many of the attractions of Skye,not the least of which is the beautiful and rugged scenery of the Trotternish peninsula. Here you can walk to the Old Man of Storr,see the Lealt Falls - not a large waterfall by any means but well worth a look,visit the Kilt Rock - so named because the shape of the cliff rocks resemble the pleats or folds of a kilt. Here there are excellent views and a waterfall goes right over the edge of the cliff. Just beyond here is the village of Staffin and the Quiraing where there is good walking taking in the features known as the Table,Needle and Prison. Further to the north are the ruins of Duntulm Castle and the Skye Museum of Island Life.

The village of Uig is at the top of the peninsula and from here the ferry goes to the Western Isles of Harris & Lewis,the Uists & Benbecula,Eriskay and Barra. Between Easter and October there are day trips which will give you a flavour of some of these islands. On summer Saturdays there is also a trip taking in the famous Callinish Stones on the west side of Lewis.

Heading west from "Lochearn" you will reach Dunvegan and the Waternish and Duirinish peninsulas. Here again is some very fine scenery with plenty of walks. Dunvegan Castle is open to visitors all year as is the Talisker Whisky distillery in the village of Carbost a few miles further south. Take a walk to the Coral Beaches or drive to Waterstein and follow the path to Neist Point, the most westerly point on Skye with its high cliffs and lighthouse.There are many other places to visit and things to do and we take pleasure in providing our guests with as much information as they require in order to have a great stay on Skye
