The terrace walk along the garden edge boasts some of the best views in Skye, looking over the Sound of Sleat to the mountains of Knoydart. Leading beyond the gardens we have created over 5 miles of nature trails into areas of beautiful mixed woodlands, with plenty of opportunities for wildlife-spotting.
You are welcome to take your dog on the nature trails but due to the presence of livestock, please keep them on leads at all times. For walks on the wider estate and Sleat Peninsular download the Paths Around Sleat leaflet produced by Visit Sleat.
The Red Trail (1.25 miles return) follows the shore of the Sound of Sleat through woodland carpeted in bluebells and wild garlic in spring. Look out through the trees and you may catch a glimpse of otters at play on the shore. The Blue Trail (1.5 miles return) takes you through farmlands and woodland with open glades with views of Armadale Castle nestling amongst the trees. A spur off this path heads north to Armadale Hill (Cnoc Armadail), extending the walk to 3 miles. A panoramic viewpoint lays the magnificent Sleat peninsula before you, framed on one side by the spectacular Cuillin Ridge and on the other by the mainland hills of Knoydart. This is the territory of red deer and golden eagles.
