Trotternish is an area of considerable historical interest with a fascinating association with the Jacobite Rebellion. Flora MacDonald, who saved Bonnie Prince Charlie's life, lived at Flodigarry! Flora MacDonald's cottage is now part of Flodigarry Country House Hotel and you can stay in the rooms there. There is also a monument to her not far away. You can read more about her story here.
A fascinating collection of artefacts and restored thatched cottages can be viewed at the Skye Museum of Island Life in Kilmuir, a small village north of Uig. Nearby is Duntulm Castle the remains of which are also of historical interest.
Loch Sianta at Digg is well worth a visit - the crystal clear water has for centuries been used for healing. Clothes were traditionally placed on the surrounding bushes to appease the celtic gods. Please ask Mags at the hotel for directions.
Anyone staying at Flodigarry should try to include a visit to Bearraig Bay which is well known for fossils, a treasure trove from the Armada, and for views out to an enchanted island in the celtic tradition. The bay has a magical atmosphere, perhaps because this was the place where cats were burned alive in special tribute to celtic gods.
Please watch this space. More information will be added soon.
