A tranquil haven amid Skye’s wild, rugged landscape. Step into the elegant castle gardens at Dunvegan and discover five acres of immaculate grounds and a romantic castle, like no other.
Amble over ornate bridges in the Water Garden, where tranquil ponds are surrounded by a huge variety of colourful flowers and herbaceous plants. See the impressive Japanese Holly centrepiece in the more formal Round Garden, before wandering around the Walled Garden, with its 17th-century sundial and ‘Dunvegan Pebble’ sculpture. Then get a glimpse of the castle and Dunvegan Loch on the shady Woodland Walk. Around 30,000 of the estate’s half-hardy plants are grown from cuttings – find out more about them in the Garden Museum before a snack in the Macleod Tables Café. Or explore Dunvegan Castle itself, home to the Clan Macleod for over 800 years.
