Portree/Dunvegan - Dunvegan Castle Exclusive Event (evening)

Disembark your tender at Dunvegan’s private pontoon and enjoy the short walk to the Castle, the seat of the Clan MacLeod chiefs since the 11th Century. The jewel in the crown of the Isle of Skye, Dunvegan is both the greatest and most renowned among Hebridean strongholds, and the only one which has been continuously owned and occupied by the same family, during a period now reaching back over a span of very nearly 8 centuries.

Dunvegan Castle will be closed to the public so that by special invitation of the owners the Castle it will be yours exclusively this evening. You will be met by a welcoming pipe band and presented with your souvenir guide books at the castle front door before moving into the castle for a tour of this family home of John MacLeod the 29th Chief of MacLeod.

Finish this very exclusive visit with a champagne reception hosted by the manager* of Dunvegan Castle while enjoying the musical accompaniment of a traditional Scottish clarsach player. As you depart you will be presented with a lovely souvenir of your visit of a miniature bottle of Chief John MacLeod of MacLeod’s own malt whiskey.

*Please note that if in residence at the time of the visit, John MacLeod the present Chief of the Clan MacLeod’s will host the champagne reception
