“Skye’s whisky distillery. Learn how whisky is made, sample the whiskies, then perhaps take a walk in the bay or lunch at the local pub or at The Oyster Shed”

“Absolute must for seafood lovers. Fresh locally caught seafood - lobster and chips a favourite! Or yummy scallops. Amazing views over the Loch. Why not take a bottle of champagne to enjoy with your meal? It’s rustic, but a great food experience ”

Bus Station
“Skye's oldest distillery. located in Carbost, it is in a beautiful and sometimes dramatic setting when the weather is bad. Staff are really friendly and it's a very well informed tour. There is a really good coffee shop across the road, and the Old Inn in Carbost is fantastic for lunch, and some live music in an evening. If you like seafood, there is also an Oyster bar near the distillery.”
