Set on a rocky outcrop on the shores of Loch Dunvegan, the castle is the oldest continuously inhabited castle in Scotland and has been the ancestral home of the Chiefs of Clan MacLeod for 800 years. On display are many fine oil paintings and clan treasures, from the famous Fairy Flag to the Dunvegan Cup, a unique ‘mazer’ dating back to the Middle Ages. The Gardens are a set in woodland glades, with shimmering pools and burns, a sharp contrast to the barren moorland that makes up the rest of Skye. Dunvegan Castle also offers its visitors regular Seal Boat Trips, as a colony of these playful sea creatures lives in in Loch. You may also see herons nesting as well as many other species of birds including the Artic Tern and the Sea Eagle. The Castle boasts three craft and souvenir shops, while MacLeod Tables Café offers hot food and snacks.
