What you will do
Departing from the pier below Dunvegan Castle, one of our traditionally built clinker boats will take you on an exhilarating 25 minute boat trip on Loch Dunvegan to see the seal colony and observe these playful sea mammals at close quarters. You may see Herons nesting as well as many other species of birds including the Artic Tern and the Sea Eagle. Voted '1 of the Best UK Days Out' by The Sunday Times Travel Magazine.

Any visit to the Isle of Skye is incomplete without savouring the wealth of history offered by Dunvegan Castle & Gardens. Built on a rocky outcrop on the shores of Loch Dunvegan once entirely surrounded by the sea, Dunvegan is the oldest continuously inhabited castle in Scotland and has been the ancestral home of the Chiefs of Clan MacLeod for 800 years.
Today visitors can enjoy tours of an extraordinary castle and Highland estate steeped in history and clan legend, delight in the beauty of its formal gardens, take a boat trip onto Loch Dunvegan to see the seal colony up close, stay in one of its charming holiday cottages, enjoy an appetising meal at the MacLeod Tables Cafe or browse in one of its three shops which offer a wide choice. There is a wealth of activities in the area ranging from walking, fishing and sightseeing to fine local cuisine, arts and craft and camping at the estate’s Glenbrittle Campsite which is located at the foot of the majestic Black Cuillin mountain range. Over time, we have given a warm Highland welcome to visitors including Sir Walter Scott, Dr Johnson and Queen Elizabeth II and we look forward to welcoming you.
