The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Dunvegan Bakery & Coffee Shop

Dunvegan, Isle of Skye IV55 8WA, UK – 01470 521326

Food was OK. Staff have that out of the way attitude to customers in that their closing time is more important than their customers requirements. I can see that they get business on the spill over from the restaurant that is over the road. If not starving, give the place a miss.

Great tasting bread. cakes. A real local bakery. Also does meals

WalkingWorld.jpg
Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the country. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks..

Camping and Caravaning

Kinloch Campsite

Kinloch Campsite, Dunvegan, Isle of Skye IV55 8WQ, UK – 01470 521531

Great campsite on the edge of Loch Dunvegan. Close to the village centre so easy to walk to the local restaurants. Staff very friendly and accommodating on arrival and helped with some questions during our stay. Facilities are more than adequate, very clean with a large toilet block, good quality showers and laundry etc if required. We were luck to have a pitch right on the Loch-side, however all pitches appear to have really good views. Would visit again.

Skye is extremely busy and we were warned to book before travelling. Booking on line is a bonus. We were made to feel very welcome, the young couple running the site could not have been more helpful moving us to the best pitch overlooking the loch as soon as it became available. A stunning location, modern clean facilities and excellent customer service.

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...

Interesting place if you enjoy clan history. The castle has a number of interesting rooms and details of the clan chiefs through the years. Try pick a dry day and take in the gardens.

Dunvegan Hotel

A863, Isle of Skye IV55 8WA, UK – 01470 521497

Hotel looks from the outside a little dated but the service and food was lovely fish was huge....😮

Staff are wonderful. The hotel itself is "tired" and is in need of a great deal of work to bring it up to modern day standards.
