- Broadford is a town on Broadford Bay, located on the south-west corner of the Isle of Skye. This is what you first come to once you’ve crossed over Skye Bridge from the Scottish mainland.

The town has many facilities including a tourist information centre, a supermarket, petrol station, several restaurants and hotels, a small airport and a hospital – see www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk Within Broadford Bay, visitors can catch sight of a variety of marine wildlife including otters, migrating killer whales (orcas) and several bird species.
- Kyleakin is a village on the east coast of the Isle of Skye. Its name comes from the Norwegian, as they ruled the island until 1263. It is also known as the gateway to Skye as it lies just the other side of the Skye Bridge. The bridge takes you across the narrow strait of Loch Alsh, from Kyleakin to the Scottish mainland. In Kyleakin you can visit Caisteal Moal the ancient ruined castle from the 15th century. The village of Broadford is also close to Kyleakin, lying a few miles north. The village has two general stores, as well as pubs and eateries to cater for visitors.
- Caisteal Maol or Castle Moal is a ruined castle situated on a headland above the village of Kyleakin on the Isle of Skye. From here you can look out across the strait to the Kyle of Lochalsh. The castle is a three-storey construction and visitors can stroll through most parts of the building. The basement, believed to have been the kitchen, is full of rubble. It’s understood Castle Moal was built in the late 15th century and is the ancient seat of the Mackinnon clan. Last occupied in 1600, the castle gradually fell into ruin over the years, and storm damage in 1949 and 1989 further caused the castle to crumble. It is now safe to walk through the remaining parts of the castle as the ruins have been secured. Reach Caisteal Moal by parking in the village of Kyleakin’s main car park and taking the short gravel path up the hill. Enjoy the spectacular views from the top!
- Teangue is a fishing village situated on the Sleat peninsula in the south-western corner of the Isle of Skye. The Sleat peninsula offers the visitor stunning scenery and Knock Bay, where Teangue is located, has a lovely sandy beach. Watch out for the fantastic coastal wildlife including herons, otters as well as schools of dolphins.
- Armadale Castle is ruined stately home in Armadale on the Isle of Skye. The castle was built in 1815 in Scottish baronial style, more designed for show than defence. Part of the building was destroyed by fire in 1855 and a central wing was then rebuilt in its place. Owned originally by the MacDonald family, they abandoned Armadale Castle in 1925 and it has since fallen into ruin. Visitors, however, can tour round the magnificent 40 acres of castle gardens which are maintained by the Clan Donald Centre. There are also a number of woodland walks and nature trails which showcase the gardens’ beauty. The Armadale Castle gardens are open throughout the year and entry is free during the winter months. At the Clan Donald Centre you’ll find plentiful parking, a gift shop and a restaurant.
