Take a Ferry to Isle of Skye which is another Island full of rich culture and history, a popular visit is to the famous Tallisker Distillery which has one of the best whisky tours we have been on , also consider visiting the Skye Museum of life which gives a fascinating insight of life on the island around end of the 19 century, which includes a mock up of a small village with farm implements and artefacts from the time, If you wish to spoil yourselves then head to the 3 Chimneys restaurant which is the only Michelin star restaurant on the Scottish Islands, if this is maybe beyond your budget then we would recommend the Old School House Restaurant for a plate of local caught fresh langoustines, or a delicious steak with a Tallisker whiskey sauce.
