This is quite a long way to get to Skye but on a rising tide, you have a good chance of seeing the nesting sea-eagles that hunt on the narrows which the little ferry crosses.
In decent weather the drive over the Mam Ratagan offers great views of the Five Sisters ridge near the top.There are two good Brochs to see near Glenelg itself,if you like those ancient structures.Glenelg has nothing much to recommend it as a village.The Inn is good but the shore isn't attractive but a few more minutes round to Kylerhea and you're in a different world.
Quiet,unspoiled (apart from those blasted pylons) and nice scenery.Otters live round here too.The sea eagles nest further down the Kyles but they come up on a rising tide to harry the gulls and steal their fish.So time your crossing well to maximise the chance of a close up sighting!
The road on Skye itself is much improved, surface wise but it's a real single track.Narrow, winding, a good 20-25 mins to the main Broadford road but very unspoiled, attractive scenery on each side as you make your way up the lonely glen..
Worth doing occasionally or as often as you want to have a chance of sea-eagle spotting up close.
