Further north, at Kilmuir, is The Skye Museum of Island Life. The group of thatched houses give a fascinating insight into the way of life of a crofting community at the end of the last century, and is the most authentic of several such museums on Skye. Info Easter to Oct Mon-Sat 0930-1700.

Behind the museum, at the end of the road, is Flora MacDonald's Monument, which marks the grave of Skye's most famous daughter, with her husband buried alongside. The rather austere memorial is inscribed with Dr Johnson's poignant tribute.
