The castle ruins are set in a fantastic location. We hiked down a steep embankment through fields with lots of sheep to the rocky shore below the castle. A really nice stop!

Very much a ruin but is a good spot to stop off for photos or a picnic. Part of the wild landscape in the north end of Skye.

A fair weather place to visit because you walk a short distance from a small lay-by through a farmer’s field to reach the ruins at the end of the headland. That’s it, you can’t get in, it’s dangerous as the walls are unstable & to...More

Ok... This is just the ruin of a 14/15th century castle.... but.... with the use of a little imagination.... you could envisage life as it may have been on this wind swept headland. Beautiful scenery.... Kids much prefer ruins to actual habitable castles... They somehow...More
