    Skyeskyns, manufacturers and suppliers of finest quality sheepskins, sheepskin products and much more, is a family business established 1983 in Waternish, Skye. One of only two remaining sheepskin tanneries in the UK,  it was awarded VisitScotland’s 5* Visitor Attraction grading for its “exceptional customer service” and world-class visitor experience.
