The town makes a great base for exploring the outstanding beauty of the Trotternish Ridge, the Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock and the Quirang to the north and, to the south, the imposing Cuillin mountains which offer both gentle and challenging climbing and walking for the world's outdoor enthusiasts. Other popular activities include cycling, pony-trekking, and boat cruises.

Here you can watch a variety of marine goings-on whether it be the local fishermen landing their catches, a cruise ship stopping by or one of the local tour boats you could not be better placed to be in the heart of it all and, of course, there is also the chance of seeing otters and seals along with an abundance of birdlife too.
