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...
Red Roof Café, Glendale
The Red Roof Café opened in 2011 and has always been an excellent place. In 2019 it changed ownership and is now better than ever. It is housed in a nicely converted barn in Glendale. To find it, take the Holmisdale road south from the junction by the village shop and Post Office in the centre of Glendale.
The limited lunch menu offers fantastic, tasty vegetarian dishes - many of them vegan - with wonderful home baked bread. The tea menu is anything but limited, with a wide range of tastes from around the world. They include teas made with foraged herbs, flowers, nettles and the like from Skye itself.
Northwest Skye - Healabhal Bheag
Glen Brittle Beach
At the head of Loch Brittle is a big beach. There is sand here at all states of the tide, and plenty of space for playing, kite flying and the like. The sand is not white, but that apart it is a beautiful spot. An added advantage here is the nearby campsite shop for ice lollies and cold drinks. (Or hot drinks and survival blankets, if you're less lucky)
There is parking for cars right by the beach. Go to the end of the road just before the entrance to the camp site, at NG409206.
The Isle of Skye...
...is conclusive proof that sometimes God is just showing off.
