Built in the 1870s as Duirinish School, and latterly serving Dunvegan as a well stocked near-supermarket, the Old School first opened its doors to diners in in 1985. Maryann and Hugh Mackenzie, Sgitheanachs returning to Skye after a naval career, initially opened the Old School as a tearoom with television repair shop. It quickly evolved into a popular, family restaurant. Now run by their son John, The Old School continues to serve up Skye and Scotland's best produce with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, in what is a popular venue for locals and visitors alike.
The Misty coffee shop in the heart of Dunvegan village serves food all day from breakfasts to evening meals. Sit in or takeaway.

Dunvegan Castle is located 1 mile (1.6 km) to the north of Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye, off the west coast of Scotland. It is the seat of the MacLeod of MacLeod, chief of the Clan MacLeod. Probably a fortified site from the earliest times, the castle was first built in the 13th century and developed piecemeal over the centuries. In the 19th century the whole castle was remodelled in a mock-medieval style. The castle is built on an elevated rock overlooking an inlet on the eastern shore of Loch Dunvegan, a sea loch.
This is an a must for any keen photographer as it passes through some of the most dramatic landscape in Scotland! As part of the Trotternish ridge it has been formed by the massive landslips which has created high cliffs, hidden plateaus and pinnacles of rock.
One of these magnificent sights! 90 meter Kilt Rock, which looks strikingly similar to a pleated kilt. Made up of basalt columns resting on a sandstone base.
