A quiet car park and picnic tables. One of the best Dark Skies spot in Europe. Two very good walks from here, particularly seeing the sea arches.

This place has a feeling of serenity despite it's troubled history. Take the time to learn the story of the church before visiting. It is easy to imagine yourself back in time at this lovely place, imagining boats rounding the misty grounds in the distance....More

This sight was recommended by the Portree tourist information office (very helpful woman). The drive to get to the ruin was very scenic. It did not appear to be a popular tourist site since we only saw one other couple - but we viewed that...More

This is a bit of a drive - though what on Skye isn't? - and the views and the wander among the headstones of the still-active cemetery that surrounds the church are well worth the drive out. My favorite moment was finding a tombstone with...More
