This is the ruin of a castle, but it is picturesquely placed at the tip of Skye. You can't go inside due to structural issues, but as I said, it is just a ruin. The day we were there at the end of October it...More

Usual single track road up to here with little parking when you do arrive. Not much of the castle left but worth a couple of photos. Nothing else here so wouldn’t plan on spending more than half an hour.

There's not a lot left of the castle, but if you do a little research and visit at low tide you can find dinosaur footprints on the beach nearby.

Duntulm Castle, although not obviously marked, is not too difficult to find. Travel North beyond Uig enroute for Staffin. This is a good place to stop after visiting The Museum of Island Life. The walk through field was easy enough. Keep close to fence and...More

We stopped off here on our way from Skye Isle Museum en route to Kilt Rock and Staffin. Definitely worth a stop off and wander round but you can't go into the ruins as it's unstable so you can just take photos from the fence....More
