Armadale Castle, Gardens and Museum of the Isles, Skye

Picturesque ruins, and the Museum of the Isles


Armadale Castle is the former seat of the Macdonalds of Sleat and known as the 'spiritual home of Clan Donald'. Romantic castle ruins sit among 40 acres of historic gardens with exotic plants, woodland and scenic walks overlooking the sea. In the award-winning Museum of the Isles, six galleries bring Highlands and Islands history to life through the story of Clan Donald - from its days of medieval glory, the Lords of the Isles, to the clan's emigration around the world. There is also a café, children's play area and two gift shops.
