We have moved and are running a new B&B in Sutherland.


Things to see and do near our B&B

Many people try to visit the whole island in a single day, but there is so much to enjoy in our own part of Skye and the nearby mainand, within walking distance or a short drive of the B&B, that we recommend that you also take the time to discover what south Skye and the mainland nearby, have to offer. Our locality is ideally situated for exploring the beautiful and often overlooked area near Kyle of Lochalsh, and this area presents some pleasant native woodland and forest walks even when the weather is wet and windy.

Below is a sample of some of the local walks and tourist attractions in South Skye and Lochalsh.

  • Ashaig Beach - a wonderful sandy beach when the tide is out. Just 10-15 minutes walk from here.
  • Walk from here to Broadford via Lower Breakish and Waterloo. Fine views. Some minor roads, some good quality walking track.
  • Kinloch Forest - waymarked walks in native woodland project area, and Dark Sky Discovery Site.
  • Clan Donald Centre - walks in grounds of a fine estate, and Dark Sky Discovery Site. Visitor facilites - restaurant, museum, gardens, etc.
  • Boat trips from Kyle of Lochalsh, Plockton, Armadale, Elgol and Portree.
  • Camas Na Sgianadin - short walk and Dark Sky Discovery Site.
  • Walk along shore tracks from Broadford to Irishman's Point - good views across to the mainland mountains.
  • Walk from Strollamus to Torrin - a fine walk on a rough track through a pass with fine views of Blaven.
  • Kilchrist - old church.
  • Walk from Camas Mallaig near Torrin (car parking by a pebbly beach) to Suisnish - easy track and popular walk with fine views of Blaven and Isle of Rhum.
  • Marble Line Path from Broadford to Borreraig. Involves a climb though on good quality track. Fine views from top of track.
  • Circular walk from Broadford involving the Marble Line. Easy. Be careful when passing Highland Cattle on this one.
  • Balmacara Gardens near Kyle on the mainland - good option for wet and windy weather - shelter from much of rain and wind.
  • Walks from Balmacara - good option for wet and windy weather - shelter from much of rain and wind. Beautiful walk over to Loch Achnahinich, and walk in opposite direction to Kyle. There is also a lovely walk to Loch Scalpay though you do need to be careful if you are heading from the north of this Loch to the minor road as there is a very deep peat bog which the track traverses with only planks!
  • Plockton - beautiful village on the mainland not far from us. Easy walks and nice views. Boat trips. Popular.
  • Duirinish to Port-an-Eorna coastal path (the area between Kyle and Plockton) - a lovely circular route involving a coastal track with fine views of the Cuillins and the Applecross mountains.
