Passing by quaint little stations and vast wide open spaces, sparkling lochs and towering mountains, it feels like travelling through time, when everything was at a much slower pace. Arriving at Kyle of Lochalsh to spend some free time before crossing the bridge to the Isle of Skye and check-in at the Kings Arms Hotel. Here you will be welcomed with a glass of something cold before your delicious evening meal. The hotel dates back to the 1600’s and has warmth & character aplenty, with many modern comforts too.

On Staffin beach there is a high concentration of dinosaur footprints which have recently been discovered so there is a great chance you might spot one here.
