Explore the Isle of Skye

There’s so much to see and do on this gem of an island

Recently voted 4th best island in the world to visit by National Geographic magazine, first time visitors to Skye will return home with memories to last a lifetime and may well become one of thousands of previous visitors who return year after year…

Whatever your fancy, whether you come for adventure in the mountains or under the sea, to experience the visitor centres, to marvel at the best sunsets in the world or the dark skies in the winter months either from the house or from the three  Dark Sky Discovery sites on Waternish, or indeed just for a quiet, relaxing break in an unspoilt location, a stay at Broad Reach will leave you with holiday memories to treasure.

Our magical peninsula of Waternish itself is alive with romance, history and interesting things to do. Below the house, on the shores of Loch Bay is the historic village of Stein, originally conceived in the eighteenth century by William Telford as a model fishing village. Today it is home to the famous Stein Inn, the oldest inn on Skye, and the excellent Lochbay Restaurant.

And, with craft centres such as Skyeskyns, Skye’s first Five Star visitor attraction, and Scotland’s only traditional sheepskin tannery and showroom, Shilasdair Yarns,  Dandelion Designs and Braefasach Gallery, your days on Waternish can be filled with discovery of rare skills. Boat trips with a difference are available from the village with Diver’s Eye Boat Trips.

Broad Reach is also ideally situated for exploring slightly further afield to places such as Dunvegan Castle, home of the Clan MacLeod, the magnificent Cuillin Mountains, dramatic Neist Point or even for a day trip to the Outer Hebrides by ferry, sailing from Uig.  For dedicated walkers the Walk Highland website lists the wide range of graded Isle of Skye walks in our area.

Whatever you seek, full days with long summer evenings or a quiet, cosy fireside winter break in an unspoilt location, you will be made a most welcome guest in our exciting new house.
