No visit to Skye is complete without seeing the home of the two great clans - family groups - the MacLeods and the MacDonalds.

Clan MacLeod, led by the new Chieftain, is found at Dunvegan Castle

The MacDonalds base is Clan Donald Centre - next to the ruin of Armadale Castle but renowned as a genealogy centre for those tracing clan roots.

And just off the island is "the iconic image of Scotland" Eilean Donan Castle in a most beautiful setting.
