Southwards Eilean Donan Castle, an iconic image for tourists world-wide is open year round. The Skye Bridge is only 25 minutes away so the whole island is available to explore on a daily basis. The train from Attadale station is an adventure in itself to take travellers to Plockton to see the seals on Calum's boat or just to enjoy the view.
