Experience aquatic adventure near Kyle of Lochalsh cottages

Kyle of Lochalsh is known as the gateway to the Isle of Skye, a lovely maritime town with picturesque scenery and enjoyable Skye holiday cottages to rent. Many activities can be found in the area, especially if one enjoys the water, and one of the most iconic spots here is the point at which 3 sea lochs come together, surrounding the castle of Eilean Donan. Easily recognizable from many feature films, the castle itself was mostly destroyed during a Jacobite uprising in 1719 but restored in the early 1900s and opened to visitors. Tours of Eilean Donan, seal spotting boat adventures and bespoke loch cruises depart daily from Kyle of Lochalsh, inviting you to explore the area.
