Experience peaceful walks through Skye’s mountainous landscape which is dotted with waterfalls, castle ruins and stone circles. You may stumble upon something even more magical than the enchanting scenery as Skye is full of intriguing myths and legends.
Walk through the unusual conical hills and over a bracken ridge to reach the legendary Faerie Glen near Uig. Discover the enthralling Faerie’s Meeting Place, complete with a glassy loch, circle formations and grassy knolls.
Travel to the magnificent Dunvegan Castle, an hour’s drive away, to find out more about Skye’s fairy folklore. The castle is home to the Fairy Flag of Dunvegan, a precious heirloom which is shrouded in mystery.
Some tales claim that the flag was given as a gift from the fairies to an infant clan chief, while others say it was a keepsake given to a chief from a departing fairy-lover - a very romantic gesture. Other stories state the flag brought luck to servicemen in the Second World War but all tales attribute strong magical powers to the intriguing Fairy Flag.
Treat yourselves to a delectable gastronomic experience at the award-winning Three Chimneys restaurant, just 15 minutes from Dunvegan Castle. Savour the restaurant’s delicious modern Scottish cuisine created by head chef Michael Smith, using the best local produce from fresh fish and seafood, to locally reared lamb and fruit and vegetables from the island’s crofts and gardens.
Finish your trip with an exciting boat trip round the coast of Skye. Head to the island’s largest town Portree, an hour’s drive from Dunvegan, and board the MV Stardust for a fantastic wildlife boat tour where you will have the chance to spot friendly seals, magnificent sea eagles and maybe even dolphins. For an added treat, why not charter your own private boat, complete with bespoke boat trip, for a memorable end to your holiday?
