What to see and do
We look forward to hearing from you.
- Otter Haven at Kylerhea
- Ring of Bright Water - The book and films were based on Gavin Maxwell who lived within a few miles, on an island where the Skye Bridge now crosses.
- Seals - whether basking on the rocks or floating around, looking at the "natives!"
- Fishing - There are lots of Sea angling and freah water fishing oportunities available all around the island. Kylerhea has is very own "Fisherman's Point" but you will be competing with the seals and the otters, but there are lots of fish there; that's what attracts the seals!
- Bird watching - Small & large birds, on land & sea, from your doorstep ... and elusive! Look out for Buzzard and Osprey or the White tailed eagle. Aros Visitors Centre, near Portree, has CCTV viewing right into the nests and a guide can give an interesting insight into the life and habits of the various birds. RSPB members can visit the exhibition free, otherwise a small fee is payable.
- Climbing - The Cuillin Hills are renowned but there are many other places on the isle. Dave & Jeanette are keen climbers and can advise on suitable places to visit. It is possible to hire a guide for more adventurous walks or on the cuillin mountains.
