The Skye Guide is an independent and personal view of the Isle of Skye. The things that are included in the guide are here because I like them - and because I think you might too. If something is not included, it may be because I would not recommend it to you, but it may be simply that I have not experienced it.
I am happy with that ambiguity...
The famous Kilt Rock is a sea cliff in north east Trotternish. It is said to resemble a kilt, with vertical basalt columns to form the pleats and intruded sills of dolerite forming the pattern.
This is a popular stopping point on the road between Portree and Staffin and there is a large car park by the waterfall at NG508655, at Ellishadder.
Red Hills - Marsco
Marsco is one of the classic hills of Skye. Its distinctive pyramidal profile dominates the view southwards from Sligachan. The views from its 736m summit are great, with a panorama of the main Cuillin Ridge, close views of Bla Bheinn, Garbh-bheinn and the rest of the Red Hills, and a wide outlook over the mainland.
There are several good routes to the top. The usual one leaves Sligachan following the Loch Coruisk path for about 3km.
Carn Liath is a 4m tall neolithic chambered cairn near Kensaleyre, beside the River Haultin at the head of Loch Eyre.
It is the largest of a cluster of cairns here, and is easy to see from a distance, because the stones from which it is constructed are covered with such white lichen that they appear to have been painted.
The Three Chimneys, Colbost
The Three Chimneys holds long list of other domestic and international recognition and awards, including 5 Gold Stars from VisitScotland, a coveted Gold EatScotland Award and a 5 Star AA rating. It has had countless superlative critiques in newspapers and magazines and restaurant guides around the globe. It truly is "Skye's world famous restaurant".
The coral beaches at Claigan, north of Dunvegan, are a mile of so from the nearest road. Directions and more information can be found here, in the walking section of the Skye Guide.
Flora MacDonald's Memorial, Kilmuir
In Kilmuir Cemetery, just behind the Museum of Island Life, is a tall memorial to Flora MacDonald, 'Preserver of Prince Charles Edward Stuart'. Despite the romanticism of the Skye Boat Song et al, she was a real and remarkable person. This is the place to come to and spend a moment reflecting on her amazing courage. She was buried in this graveyard (though not very close to where her memorial stands) in 1790.
