Shopping and Entertainment
Skye is a mecca for shopping and the arts. Perhaps it's the amazing scenery that inspires photographers, artists and sculptors to hone their craft in this beautiful land. There are shops and galleries to suit all tastes, many of the them open all year round. The north of the island at Waternish Skyeskyns is the only working tannery in Scotland, producing gorgeous sheepskin rugs, slippers and much more. Our shops stock a huge range of locally produced gifts, as well as wonderful Harris Tweeds and dyed yarns. Nearer to home is Grumpy George at Armadale Pier and Floraidh Skye at Eilean Iarmain. Our photographers recreate the stunning landscapes in canvas and on paper, and our Skye based artists bring our land to life! The Skye and Lochalsh Arts & Crafts Association showcase the very best of West Coast arts.
