Your Wee Winter Break at the Three Chimneys
The nights may be drawing in, but that’s all the more reason to enjoy a relaxing and cosy stay here at the Three Chimneys. With the lounge fire crackling away, enjoy a hot drink or dram whilst keeping an eye on our stunning scenery and the seals in Loch Dunvegan. Of course, there are plenty of things to keep you occupied during your stay, should you wish to step out of the comfort of the House over By.
Neist point is one of the most famous lighthouses in Scotland and can be found on the most westerly point of Skye, near the township of Glendale and only a 20 minute drive from here. There is a lovely 45 minute walk to the lighthouse with some impressive views and you are sure to feel refreshed after a wander on a blustery day!
There are lots of walks similar to this on Skye that prove equally as sensational with the views of the rugged landscape and inherent beauty of the island. Take a look here at the Top Ten Skye Walks and let us know how you get on.
For those that are looking for a more creative outlet, the Isle of Skye is home to a wide variety of artists and crafters using lots of different materials to create outstanding pieces. You can follow the creative trail or perhaps pick a few to visit, but either way you could be taking home an original to remember your magical stay on the island. Art Skye have information on each of the creatives and you can download the digital trail map on their website. We have physical copies available for you at reception as well so you can plan your journey to see the very best west coast arts and crafts.
We are so fortunate the Northern Lights are visible here and where better to view them from than right here on Loch Dunvegan or across the way in Glendale. Andy Stables is one of the best known Aurora hobbyists in the UK and he has a Facebook page that you will absolutely love – Glendale Skye Auroras. Beautiful to see these images online, but imagine getting to see them for yourself! Remember to download the Aurora Alerts app so you never miss an opportunity, more information here.
Normally we would have an arm’s length list of events for you to attend over the winter months but in these uncertain times, we aren’t sure when gatherings and large events will be able to continue. That doesn’t mean that all activities stop however and there are still plenty of ways for you to experience what Skye has to offer.
We’ve already mentioned walking and climbing as well as activities for art lovers, but for the more adventurous among you there are plenty of activities to keep you occupied. From coasteering, to fishing and swimming (pool and wild) as well as archery and bike hire, you can make your trip as active as you wish! Just ask at reception and we’ll gladly help you with your itinerary. Keep an eye on our social media channels for the last goings-on and news from around the island. And of course, please don’t forget to tag us in your Skye adventures
