Beautiful Castle gardens.
Seat of the Clan MacLeod.
Depart the charming port of Portree and drive across the lovely Isle of Skye to its west coast to the castle of Dunvegan; seat of the Clan MacLeod chiefs since the 13th Century. One of the greatest and most renowned among the Hebridean strongholds, Dunvegan Castle is the only one to have been continuously owned and occupied by the same family over a period now spanning 8 centuries. Within the castle are priceless heirlooms, some of which have come down through the hands of the Chiefs of MacLeod since medieval times, including such treasures as the Dunvegan cup, the mysterious Fairy Flag and Rory Mor’s Horn. Explore the lovely gardens that surround the waterfall known as Rory Mor’s cascade. Enjoy the varied landscape including views of the dramatically beautiful Cuillin Mountains as you return to Portree.
Remarks/requirements: Appropriate warm, layered, waterproof clothing and comfortable walking shoes.
Walking information: At guests' discretion, mainly flat and even, multiple steps in the castle.
