Scalpay View - Bed and Breakfast on the Isle of Skye

Local Activities and Places of Interest

Scalpay View - the rainbow's endThis marvellous coastline offers great bird watching potential, also wildlife such as otter - with vewing almost guaranteed. Enjoy views overlooking the beautiful privately owned Isle of Scalpay and its huge visible herd of red deer (seen at the right time of year), and the Isle of Raasay.

This is great hill walking and mountain climbing country: the Black & Red Cuillins are nearby, also Blaven, Beinn Na Caillich and Bheinn Mhor to name but a small selection. Good fishing is also possible with a choice of fresh and sea water rivers and lochs. Alternatively, bring a bicycle (or hire one locally) and enjoy the the wind in your hair and the freedom of Skye for a complete escape!

The Tourist Information Centre (UK telephone no. 08452 255121) is well worth a visit to obtain the latest advice on activities and events, and to buy maps, guides, postcards and souvenirs.

Portree - the island's capital - is 19 miles to the north-west, with its picturesque harbour and choice of shops, pubs and cafes. At nearby Sconser there is a ferry crossing to the Isle of Raasay operated by Caledonian MacBrayne.
