Located on the Sleat peninsula, this picturesque port lies on one of the most fertile farming areas of Skye. Its ruined 19th century castle has been partly restored by a trust which has also created the Museum of the Isles dedicated to the history of the MacDonalds of Sleat. A ferry brings visitors here from the mainland town of Mallaig.

The Sleat peninsula also boasts ruined Dunscaith Castle, home of the MacDonalds until the 16th century, and the romantic remains of Knock Castle. The latter was built by the MacDonalds’ rivals, the MacLeods, in the 15th century.
