Kyleakin was the first place visitors saw of
the Misty Isle after being ferried from the
mainland. Now it is bypassed by the
privately-funded Skye road bridge and has a
pleasing air of tranquility.
The Bright Water Visitor Centre focuses on the area’s natural beauty and the importance of the nearby island of Eilean Ban, one-time home of the author and conservationist Gavin Maxell whose book on otters, ‘Ring of Bright Water’, was turned into a film.
