Visitor Attractions in Sleat

Sleat has a host of visitor attractions, offering an exciting choice of things to see and do during your stay. Whilst many of our places of interest and activities are open during the spring, summer and autumn, Sleat is a year-round holiday destination with plenty of ideas to keep the family occupied even in the winter months. The natural beauty of the 'garden of Skye' gives plenty of ideas for days out, from a gentle afternoon's fishing in one of our sheltered lochs or bays, a stroll around magnificent gardens and woodlands, to the thrills of a wildlife  cruise, out across the waters around Sleat. For full details and opening times of our great range of attractions, galleries,  shops and craft centres please see the individual  websites or call us for more information.
