The island is steeped in folklore and history with many historical sites, located nearby.

Fresh locally sourced seafood, shellfish and game can be purchased from local Oysterman's shop in Carbost. There are a variety of highly recommended eating places on the island, including the renowned Three Chimneys Restaurant at Colbost, near Dunvegan.
