Places to visit nearby:
Dunvegan Castle & Gardens:

Just 3 miles from Roskhill, Dunvegan Castle has been the seat of the Clan MacLeod for 700 years. Follow the signs from the top end of Dunvegan village.
The castle is open daily 10:00 to 5:30 (11-4 in winter). It is well worth making time to stroll round the castle gardens and see the Water Garden, Round Garden and Walled Garden.

In the loch by the castle is the Loch Dunvegan Seal Colony. Boat trips from the castle jetty (lasting about half an hour), take you to see this colony of 450 seals at close quarters.

Talisker Distillery:
A twenty minute drive south from Roskhill to Carbost brings you to the turning for the Talisker, where Skye's only single malt whisky is produced. Guided tours every half hour.

Waternish peninsula:
Take the road to Portree and turn left at the Waternish turning. This is a beautiful part of Skye. Close to the picturesque lochside village of Stein with its 18th century Inn is Skye Skyns, where handmade sheepskin rugs are produced - one of the last places to use the traditional methods.

Glendale & Neist Point:
The road to Glendale (signposted at the near end of Dunvegan village) offers marvelous views and takes you to Orbost Gallery, the Colbost Croft Museum (a reconstruction of an old croft), Skye Silver and the Glendale Toy Museum. Beyond Glendale, the cliff scenery at Neist Point is breathtaking and on a clear day there are stunning views of The Uists, Benbecula, Harris and Lewis.
Trotternish, the Quiraing and the Old Man of Storr.
The drive up to Uig and over the top of the Trotternish peninsula is beautiful, taking in the Quiraing, the Old Man of Storr (see walks below) and the Kilt Rock viewpoint.
We have OS maps and walk/guide books which can be borrowed.

Below is a selection from the many walks in North Skye:
In the immediate local area there are 2 short walks.
The Two Churches Walk and Coral Beaches.

Other longer walks include:
Varkasaig Beach & MacLeods Maidens:
Take the left turning for Roag and Orbost just 400 yards beyond Roskhill and follow signs for Orbost. Â Orbost Gallery is well worth seeing.
After the Gallery turn left at the T-junction and park in the farmyard by Orbost House.
The track follows the coast overlooking Loch Varkasaig with stunning views to the islands of Rhum and Canna. The walk to Varkasaig beach and back takes about 45 minutes. Or you can carry on to Idrigill Point and the Macleods Maidens rock stacks - a return trip of about 5 hours.

Greshornish Forest Walks:
An easy walk on a forestry track with views to the Cuillins and across to Edinbane and Uig. Start from the gate marked 'Walkers Welcome' which is on the Portree road about half a mile before the Greshornish House Hotel turning.

The Quiraing and the Old Man of Storr:
Both of these are famous Skye landmarks due to their distinctive shapes. Both are about 40 minutes' drive from Roskhill. The Quiraing is on the road between Uig and Staffin on the Trotternish peninsula. The starting point for the climb up the Old Man of Storr is on the road between Portree and Staffin. See OS maps and guide books for full details on both.

Glen Brittle & the Cuillin Hills:
Follow the main road south and take the turning for the Talisker distillery. Before you get to the distillery turn left for Glenbrittle (7 miles).
This spectacular road takes you right into the Cuillins then drops down to Glenbrittle beach and campsite from where many walks begin.
There is a fine walk out along the headland. For the more adventurous, take the path up behind the campsite to Coire Lagan.
The Cuillins can also be approached from Sligachan: park at the Sligachan Hotel for walks up Sgurr an Gilean, Glamaig, Marsco and the famous Glen Sligachan walk.
