The crofters' hamlet of Suladale is a charming place over the sea to Skye situated between Portree and Dunvegan. A number of working crofts with livestock can still be seen here. Skye offers numerous visitor attractions including walking, fishing, bird-watching and horse riding at the stables close by. There's so much to see and do - take a boat trip out to sea from Portree; explore Dunvegan Castle, or climb up the Cuillin Mountains.
