The ‘Misty Isle’ is as rich in myth as it is in documented history. From Cu Chullainn, the legendary Irish warrior who is said to have given his name to the island’s famous hills, to the astonishing tale of Dunvegan Castle’s Fairy Flag and the sheer romanticism of Flora MacDonald, Bonnie Prince Charlie and the tale that inspired the famous Skye Boat Song, stories from and about Skye have resonated through the centuries and across the world.
The Cabin is in Sleat in the south of the island – an area known as ‘the garden of Skye’. Here, the island is all wooded coastline, rich farmland and stunning views of sea and mountain.
Beyond The Cuillins, the large northern part of the island has fishing villages, spectacular cliffs and, of course, the bustling capital, Portree.
