Situated in the beautiful area of Skye and Lochalsh, Salty Towers Bed and Breakfast is the perfect base to explore the surrounding area. Situated 10 - 15 mins walk to the famous Eilean Donan Castle which can be seen from the driveway, and only 15 minutes drive to the Skye Bridge, and The Island of Skye. There you can experience The Old Man of Storr, The Quirang, The Fairy Pools and Fairy Glen, as well as Dunvegan Castle and the Talisker Distillery. A half hour drive from the NC500 route, we can offer an extended adventure to your holiday! The nearby village of Dornie, 10 - 15 walk (same route as Castle), has a local, family run grocery shop and post office, and a Hotel and Pub which both serve evening meals. We are also situated next door to Manuelas Organic Bakery and Jo,s Pizzeria, and the newly opened Fairytale Gin Distillery. Overlooked by the stunning Five Sisters of Kintail, you will enjoy views from the rooms over Loch Alsh down to Loch Duich and we are within striking distance to the picturesque village of Plockton with its famous palm trees and the home of the famous Gaelic Poet, Sorley MacLean. Nearby is the village of Glen Elg, close to the secret home for many years, of the author Gavin Maxwell. Famous for many books and university papers, such as The Ring Of Bright Water and his otters. There is a museum just over the Skye Bridge, in Kyleakin in his memory. Glen Elg area is also home to Iron Age Pictish Brochs, beautifully preserved by Historic Scotland. This village is host to something truly remarkable..... the last surviving Turntable Ferry in the world, where it is still possible to 'sail over the sea to Skye'! A short crossing, but stepping back in time, will see you follow a part of the old 'drovers' routes... a perilous part of the journey taking cattle from the Islands to the markets down south! Waterfall walks, shoreline walks, as well as harder climbs and long hikes, the area offers something for all levels, or simply just relax in the quietness!
