Typical Stops

Sligachan Bridge, Monument and Waterfalls

Engineer Thomas Telford built the bridge between 1810 and 1818, and according to legend the waters under Sligachan Old Bridge are enchanted and form a gateway to the faerie world.

Not far from Sligachan Bridge is this beautiful spot you must visit: Slighachan Waterfall. It’s a short walk from Sligachan Old Bridge, a picturesque waterfall with the Black Cuillin in the background.

The Fairy Pools and Black Cuillins

The Pools are a series of natural waterfalls located in Glen Brittle. Crystal clear and aqua-blue pools, with the Coullin Hills in the background. 

The biggest and most impressive pools and waterfalls are all at the start of the path, if you walk higher up, the pools and waterfalls will be slightly smaller but it will be less busy. They are equally beautiful, and you will also be closer to the impressive Cuillins.

Talisker Distillery and Loch Harport

Established in 1830, Talisker Distillery is the oldest working distillery on the Isle of Skye, set on the shores of Loch Harport in the village of Carbost, with dramatic views of the Cuillins.

Talisker produces a sweet, full-bodied single malt that is easy to enjoy. You can book a tour, experience or tasting on their website.


Dunvegan Castle is located 1 mile to the north of Dunvegan. It is the seat of the MacLeod of MacLeod, chief of the Clan MacLeod. Dunvegan Castle is one of the greatest Hebridean castles and the only Highland fortress to have been continuously occupied by the same family for 800 years.

The castle has five acres of gardens started in the 18th century. In contrast to the moorland and mountains which dominate Skye’s landscape, the castle’s Water Garden, Rose Garden, Walled Garden, and woodland walks provide an oasis for an eclectic mix of flowers, plants, trees, and pools fed by waterfalls and streams flowing down to the sea.

Fairy Glen (Uig)

The Fairy Glen is a unique and unusual landscape, a geological wonder on the Isle of Skye that comprises a number of conical hills that look man-made but are the remnants of an ancient landslip similar to the equally amazing Quiraing.

The landforms are strangely beautiful and offer superb photo opportunities.

The Quiraing

The Quiraing is the remnant of an ancient landslide that has formed a breathtaking series of valleys, gorges and mountainous peaks on the northern tip of the island, an outstanding area of natural beauty on the northernmost summit of Trotternish. This formation is an absolutely essential destination for any visitor to the Isle of Skye as it offers one of the most picturesque walks in Scotland.

Parts of the distinctive landscape have earned particular names. There is The Needle, a jagged 120-foot-high (37 m) landmark pinnacle, remnant of landslipping. Northwest of it is The Table, a flat grassy area slipped down from the summit plateau. Southwest is the Prison, a pyramidal rocky peak which can look like a medieval keep when viewed from the right angle – the ascent of this is an airy scramble.

The name Quiraing comes from Old Norse Kví Rand, which means ‘Round Fold‘. Within the fold is The Table, an elevated plateau hidden amongst the pillars. It is said that the fold was used to conceal cattle from Viking raiders.

Lealt Falls

The Lealt Falls are a must-see stop on any road trip around Skye’s Trotternish Peninsula. There is a car park and a viewing platform, which makes the view of the Falls very accessible.

Lealt Gorge is a natural valley formed by the Lealt River, which has carved deep into the rocky landscape and created the waterfall. The gorge is home to a series of impressive waterfalls, including the Lealt Waterfall crashing deep toward the coast.

The Old Man of Storr

This massive pinnacle, the Old Man of Storr, is one of Scotland’s most iconic places. The Old Man is in fact just one element in an array of fantastic rock features, and the views out over the Sound of Raasay and to the mainland are stunning.

The landmark sits at an elevation of 719 meters and it can be reached via gravel paths, rough tracks, and a scramble over bare rock. Discover this stunning outdoor attraction.
