A visually spectacular 2 hr walk created for travelers looking to experience local, authentic island culture in a sociable & memorable way. For a few hours at least, I want you to feel like a local. In small groups of 5 (occasionally 6), you’ll enjoy traditional local snacks, taste & appreciate the diversity of single malt whisky, speak a few Gaelic words and uncover our epic story. All this, while walking along the hidden coastal paths and trails that meander out from Portree village. You'll discover Skye's Jurassic past as you gaze out across the water island to Scotland. From Viking invasions to the rise and fall of our most famous clans, I'll share it all with you. Believe it or not, the history of our tiny island has helped to forge modern western civilization. The views are impressive. We occasionally see our local sea eagles on their last flight of the day. This area is home to many of our local sea creatures and wildlife. It’s quite hard to convey the quietness & calm of a summer evening here. Portree will reappear beyond the headland as we trace the coast home. We’ll arrive back to a traditional Scottish pub, pairing some chocolate, with our famous local whisky. Chocolate and whisky is the only way to end an adventure - with friends - on Skye! *Don’t see a suitable date or time - get in touch and we can try and arrange something!
I'm a musician, Portree local and descendant of Skye's most famous clan. My life has been spent exploring the amazing landscapes and stories that surround our small harbor village. Many of these stories I've shared through my own music across the world, traveling & playing music in places like Nashville, Tennesee. I want you to experience Skye, the way I have since my childhood. By bringing people together in small groups and helping build a connection to our Island that goes beyond just admiring the awesome views. I want to give you an exclusive, intimate and memorable experience almost all other visitors will miss out on. This is an experience with new friends, that I hope will become a story you share with friends back home.
