welcome to our corner of skye
Commonly known as ‘the garden of Skye’, Sleat is Skye’s softer, greener peninsula with lush vegetation reaching down to rocky shorelines and sandy beaches. There is a real garden at Armadale Castle with exotic trees and shrubs from around the world, a new distillery at Torabhaig, and walks to suit everyone from the youngest to the oldest!
We have five beautiful and distinctive hotels, cosy and welcoming B and B’s, self-catering cottages with stunning views, a hostel and a new motorhome park; in short, accommodation to suit the most discerning traveller and those on a more limited budget. When it comes to food, you can experience fine dining, delicious bar meals and takeaways that make the most of the abundant local produce from sea and land.
For music and arts lovers we have frequent concerts, many organised by SEALL our local events provider, with world class musicians and performers, many of whom teach on the easter and summer Short Courses at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, Scotland’s National Centre for Gaelic Language and Culture.
There are many artists and makers resident in Sleat who have studios and galleries to visit alongside exhibitions held at An Talla Dearg in Isle Ornsay. And while you’re there, why not sample the Gaelic whiskies and gins. You can also shop for stunning clothes, accessories and gifts in unique and surprising locations dotted throughout the peninsula.
You can take to the water in a kayak with expert tuition, take a walk, or just sit and admire the view! The important thing is to take your time to soak up the sights and sounds of our perfect corner of Skye – we look forward to welcoming you!
