The Sleat peninsula on the Isle of Skye is a destination that rewards slow travel and curious cultural investigation. Sleat presents a greener side to the famous island, it’s known as ‘the garden of Skye’ for good reason, and combines historic attractions with sandy beaches, delightful woodland walks with the most stunning views east to the Scottish mainland and west to the peaks of the Cullins.

An impressive home to eagles and otters, castles and crofts, the peninsula also boasts a rich cultural heritage that is proudly focused on Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, Scotland’s National Centre for Language and Culture, and an independent partner of the University of the Highlands and Islands.
