Skye is the sort of destination that yearns to be explored and Monkstadt 1745 is perfectly placed to discover all that this magnificent Island has to offer. Here are some ideas on what you can do whilst visiting us here.

Isle of Skye

Skye has so much to offer from the iconic Cuillin Mountain range, Fairy Glen, Dunvegan Castle, Quiraing to the crystal waters of Coral Beach to name a few, but there is so much more to explore.

Here are a few of the famous spots on the way to Monkstadt!

North End

We are located on the north end of Skye, a popular spot for visitors who want to see some of Skye’s most famous landmarks. Drive from Portree via Staffin to Uig on the north end loop road and you can tick off a fair few of those Instagram worthy attractions you may have noticed whilst doing your travel research.


Old Man of Storr

Stop off firstly at the Old Man of Storr and walk up the path to the dramatic rock pillars which begin the land slipped scenery which Trotternish is famous for.

Lealt Falls

Head on to Lealt Falls where you can park up and take a brief stroll down to a peaceful shoreline for views of the impressive gorge and waterfall.

Kilt Rock and Mealt Falls

Further along the road is the popular spot of Kilt Rock and Mealt Falls, where an ancient cliff face bares a striking resemblance to a traditional Scottish kilt.


Finally walk up the renowned Quiraing which towers above Staffin and offers an exceptional panorama of Raasay, Rona, Gairloch and Torridon on the mainland.

And so much more …
