Virtual Tour – Over the sea to Skye

Tour Date: Wednesday 16th September

On this virtual tour, we head over the sea to Skye to explore the heart of Clan MacDonald territory along the Sleat Peninsula.

About this Event

“Speed bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing. Onward! The sailors cry.” Those are the words of the traditional folk tune, ‘The Skye Boat Song’.

Even though you can nip across from the mainland via a bridge these days, there is still nothing more romantic than hopping on a ferry and sailing across the sea. Join me as we step off the ferry and explore the Sleat Peninsula, including Armadale Castle home to Clan Macdonald.

Join professional guide, Andrew Baxter, as we discover some off-the-beaten-path places, hear old folk tales and take in the beautiful landscape of southern Skye.
