Situated in the beautiful area of Skye and Lochalsh, Salty Towers Bed and Breakfast, overlooked by The Five Sisters of Kintail and Glen Shiel, and a 'stones throw' to Loch Duich and Loch Alsh, is the perfect, peaceful, base to explore the surrounding area.
Kintail National Scenic Area is one of the 40 scenic areas in Scotland, and is considered to encapsulate the scenery of the West Highlands being composed of ridges and peaks that rise steeply from narrow glens and the sea.
A popular hillwalking expedition area, the Five Sisters comprise of 5 distinct summits - Sgurr na Ciste Duibhe, Sgurr na Carnach, Sgurr Fhuaran which are the 3 Munros, and Sgurr nan Saighead & Sgurr na Moraich.
The Ridge continues unbroken to the east where it takes in another further 3 Munros - Sgurr a Bhealaich Dheirg, Saileag & Aonach Meadhoin.
Beinn Fhada (Ben Attow) is the other mountain in the 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 Jurassic Island of Skye.
There you can experience The Cuillins Mountain Range, The Old Man of Storr, The Quirang, The Fairy Pools and Fairy Glen, Dunvegan Castle, Armadale Castle, Coral Bay, Talisker Bay and the Talisker Distillery, Niest Point Lighthouse, and also go looking for dinosaur footprints at Staffin Bay.
The nearby village of Dornie, 10 - 15 walk (same route as Castle), has a local, family run grocery shop and post office. The Dornie Hotel and Pub has just reopened and is proudly offering a new top quality Seafood Restaurant, as well as a more informal bar menu. Please look at their web site for menu, prices and to book. Booking is essential at this time. The Clachan Bar is also open offering evening meals on a 'walk-in' basis, apart from Tuesday nights.
We are situated next door to Manuelas Organic Bakery and Jo,s Pizzeria, and the Award Winning Fairytale Gin Distillery.
We are also 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 and his otters. Famous for many books and university papers, including The Ring Of Bright Water. 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, one of which is the best preserved in the UK. This village is also 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... this crossing being a perilous part of the journey taking cattle from the Islands to the markets down south!
Low level waterfall walks, shoreline walks, as well as high level harder climbs and long hikes, this area offers something for all, or, just simply just relax in the quietness!
Not far from the NC500 route, Salty Towers can offer an extension to your trip, giving you the chance to explore this beautiful area as an added bonus. A trip to Applecross for the day is also possible, if you dare the infamous 'road'!!
