About Sleat

The Garden of Skye

Sleat is home to not just some of the world’s most beautiful scenery but also to award-winning restaurants, hotels and attractions. Add to that some of the finest entertainment from traditional, popular and classical music, theatre, contemporary dance, opera, ballet and much more. Whether it’s an amble through a ruined castle, a splash through the waves on a whale-spotting trip, a cosy afternoon in front of a log fire or a candle lit dinner, Sleat caters for every taste.

Sleat is commonly referred to as ‘the garden of Skye’, but visitors who’ve been to this heavenly peninsula in the south end of the island more often liken it to the garden of Eden.

Violet, heather-clad mountains drop dramatically to the glittering blue sea that snakes around beaches and rocky shorelines, punctuated with lush gardens and dense forests.
