Activities & Things To Do

Outdoor activities on the Isle of Skye

From Kayaking and horse-riding to rambling, abseiling to axe throwing, there is an activity to suit even the most adventurous visitors. Whilst your pup may not be able to join you in a canyoning adventure or archery, there are plenty of outdoor activities where they can join in the fun.

The stunning Applecross Estate which covers almost 26,000 hectares across the isle offers the opportunity for some fantastic adventures for you and your four-legged friend. Spend a day fishing, walking through woodland surrounded by wildlife or messing about on the water

Dunvegan Castle Gardens

From the Northern villages to the south side of the Isle of Skye, there are plenty of places to visit with your canine companion, but one of the highlights is Dunvegan Castle. Dogs are allowed throughout the stunning formal gardens but must be kept on a lead.

There are tranquil woodland walks and beautiful streams and waterfalls flowing through an eclectic mix of exotic plants and rare flora and fauna. Check out the pretty Rose Garden with its water lily pond, memorial gazebo and 17th-century sundial. There is also a range of events throughout the year.

Take a Boat Trip

There are numerous companies that welcome dogs on their boat trips around the Isle of Skye and with opportunities to see whales, sharks and dolphins in the wild; this is one of the best ways to spend a day when you book dog-friendly cottages on the Isle.

Boats leave from Portree, Dunvegan, in fact most of the seaside towns. A wonderful wildlife experience watch Sea Eagles soar, seal colonies resting on the rocks and countless seabirds such as Gannets, Puffins and Gullimots. Take a camera as you will want to capture memories of the incredible wildlife and stunning coastal scenery and maybe even a selfie of you and your pup rising the ocean waves.

About Holidays In Skye With Dogs

With its miles of golden sands, pretty villages, mountains and woodland the Isle of Skye is a paradise for both dogs and there owners. With so many cottages to choose from and some fabulous discounts exclusive to our partner’s site, you are sure to find the perfect place for a mini break or holiday in this breathtaking destination.

Across the whole Isle there is plenty to do and see, from impressive castles such as Dunvegan to weird iconic rock formations like the Old Man of Storr.

Explore the Trotternish Peninsula and the mythical Faerie Glens with its otherworldly landscape. You can keep your eyes peeled for the little people while Rover sniffs out the wildlife.

You’ll be doing a lot of walking on the Isle of Skye, so it’s good to know there are loads of pubs and cafes that welcome dogs so you can rest weary feet and paws. Dog treats and food are served at Saucy Marys in Kyleakin and the oldest pub on the Island, The Stein Inn, which boasts over 130 malt whiskies, also welcomes visitors with four paws.

If there is one landmark most guests staying at cottages on the Isle of Skye visit, it’s the Old Man of Storr. This idyllic spot on the Trotternish ridge is one of the most photographed landscapes in the world. Legend tells of a local giant who died, and the “Old Man” is his thumb poking up from the grave; however, science tells us the stunning rock formations were caused by a landslide millions of years ago. 

The Last Word

Visit National Trust visitor centres and access member-only prices to their properties. Take a boat trip that is guaranteed to inspire awe, walk along deserted beaches with Fido at your side or take on some challenging walks in the Cuillin Hills. Whichever way you spend your days, one thing is certain; you and your hound will have a magical time on this amazing island.
