Dunvegan Castle & Gardens

MacLeod Estate, Dunvegan House, Dunvegan, Isle of Skye IV55 8WF, UK – 01470 521206

Stopped off here on the way to Neist Point. The gardens are a nice little walk, and the castle is good but doesn't allow photography. The main event here was the boat trip to see the seals (an extra £7.50 per adult). The boat is tiny, and the water can be choppy. Depending on how you feel about that you'll either have a brilliant time or 25 minutes running over what you'll do in the event of a capsize. I may have been closer to the latter, but the seals really were brilliant to see. We sailed very close to the them, got some good photos, and gave my daughter her first chance to get so close to seals. "Woof woof," she said...

Very nice castle, gorgeous furnishings & historic items & art. Gardens are extensive. Formal square layout, circle garden, water garden with waterfalls & streams, & woodland walkway. Would be a 5-star, but as with most castles with expensive art & articles, no photos are allowed inside! Café serving lunches & 2 gift shops. Plenty of parking, even for buses & caravans!
