Leisure Activities on the Isle of Skye
The Isle of Skye is larger than most people think – about 60 miles long and made up of several very different peninsulas. Incredibly, due to its ‘winged’ shape, it has a coastline of several hundred miles!
At Ashaig B&B there is a comprehensive information folder available to help guests make the most of a visit to the island. It includes extensive details about places of scenic and historical interest, recommended restaurants, and has suggested daily itineraries and driving directions.
After a day of exploring, guests can rest by the fire in Ashaig’s sun lounge – a place in which to relax and enjoy the tranquillity, or browse through the collection of Skye history and guide books.
Skye is justly famous for its natural beauty and many items of cultural or historical interest – it is a photographer’s and artist’s paradise due to the stunning views and unique light effects.
Other attractions and places to visit on the island include the Sleat Peninsula – home of the Gaelic College, the Clan Donald Centre, Armadale Castle and Gardens, and the Museum of the Isles.
River fishing close by on the Skeabost River. Loch and sea fishing is available from some excellent boat skippers around the island.
The Fingal Centre in Portree has a swimming pool, sauna and other leisure facilities. A computer access and Library.
Guided Walks Programme available – please view details of guided walks – and details of typical walks from previous years.
Also in the locality or very nearby, there are regular Ceilidhs [traditional music and dancing], a swimming pool, golf courses, horse ridging trails at the Skye Riding Centre, many art galleries and craft outlets, a local whisky distillery, and the famous Dunvegan Castle.
