    Skyeskyns is Scotland's only traditional exhibition tannery and offers free guided tours to see the story of leather. A world-class sheepskin experience.

    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.
    All year round, visitors are offered free guided tours to witness time-honoured methods of making leather, the oldest craft,  and then the chance to browse perhaps the most comprehensive range of luxurious natural sheepskins and sheepskin products to be found anywhere.  Check out the website.
