Many of the castle’s public rooms are open and the formal gardens are a hidden oasis amid the barren Skye landscape. The Isles of Lewis and Harris are guardians of a rich culture with roots in the mists of time. Although basically one land mass, the islands have always had their own distinct identities and unique physical characteristics, and during your stay you’ll explore both, having the chance to enjoy the varied scenery as well as visiting some of the main historical and archaeological sites. Highlights include two reminders of the islands’ ancient past, the spectacular standing stones of Callanish and the imposing Broch of Carloway, and a visit to the preserved and reconstructed ‘Black House’ at Arnol. The drive from Ullapool across the north west Highlands to Carrbridge for the final night is yet another scenic delight.
