A great place to visit if you are interested (or even if you’re not) in the Gavin Maxwell story is Eilean Bàn, the “White Island”, nestled under the Skye Bridge. The Gavin Maxwell Museum is within the Lighthouse cottage. The wildlife hides have fantastic views over to Skye and are good for watching seals on the rocks opposite. Eider ducks, Cormorants, Porpoise and even the odd Otter can appear if you are lucky! The guides are local volunteers so book your visit in advance via the Bright Water Centre in Kyleakin or phone 01599 530040
