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...
Camas Ban, Portree
Camas Ban is Portree's only sandy beach. You might think that would make it a busy place on a warm summer day, but it seldom is. Back in the early twentieth century small boats would ferry hoards of people back and forth across the bay from Portree Pier to Camas Ban. Today you either need your own small boat (a sea kayak is ideal) or you need to take a short pathless hike over some rough ground and down a steep slope to the sand. If you are reasonably fit it isn't too difficult - and you might even get the whole beach to yourselves.
Strath - Boreraig
Boreraig is one of the best, most intact, examples of a cleared village on Skye. It lies on the north shore of Loch Eishort and is reached either by boat or by a walk of some 6km across the moor from Strath Suardal. It is a straightforward walk, starting on the Marble Line Path and then over the moor on a fairly good track. This walk can be done as an extension of the marble line 'stroll'.
Northwest Skye - Waternish Point
The outing from Trumpan to the lighthouse on the tip of Waternish Point is a longish (14km) but straightforward hike in a totally unpopulated area of Skye. There are two fine duns (brochs) to explore on the way, some fine cliff scenery, and fantastic views across the mouth of Loch Dunvegan and over The Minch to the Outer Hebrides. Much of the route it on a well defined track, so navigation is pretty easy, and there are no steep or prolonged climbs to be tackled.
The Skeabost Hotel has had an up and down history. A former MacDonald hunting lodge at the mouth of the salmon river at Snizort, the hotel and its 9 hole golf course are beautifully situated. And today the place is on the up.
Since 2015, when it was acquired by the owners of Skye's Toravaig House and Duisdale House hotels, a lot of investment has been made and the place has been much improved on its former self. The environment and the service are very good indeed, and the kitchen is producing simple food with great flair and precision. It's well worth a visit for lunch or for dinner.
On a fine day, find yourselves a window table: the views over Loch Snizort Beag from the dining room are superb.
