office, a petrol station, and Jann's Cake Shop and Cafè
as well as The Old Schoolhouse Restaurant.
The famous Three Chimneys Restaurant is about a twenty
five minute drive from Dunvegan and the restaurants in
Stein - Loch Bay and The Stein Inn are also about twenty
five minutes drive away. The Edinbane Inn is also about
a twenty five minute drive away.
Neist Point, Waternish, Portree, the Cuillin, The
Quirang and Talisker Distillery are all places worthy of

Still inhabited by the
Dunvegan Castle and
gardens is the seat of the MacLeod of MacLeod, chief of
the Clan MacLeod. Dunvegan Castle is the oldest
continuously inhabited castle in Scotland and has been
the stronghold of the chiefs of the clan for nearly
800 years. Originally designed to keep people out, it
was first opened to visitors in 1933. Since then, the
castle is consistently ranked as one of Scotland's
premier visitor attractions.
