On the breathtaking Isle of Skye
Seann Druim's location on the Trotternish Peninsula on the Isle of Skye puts it in one of the most spectacular and breath taking landscapes to be found in the British Isles, with magnificent mountains, moorland, lochs and sea. One local feature: The Quiraing is one of the most exciting natural rock formations anywhere in Scotland. The coast with its many miles of beautiful cliffs, stacks, sea caves, natural arches, waterfalls and fabulous marine and bird life, provides the visitor with wonderful and varied walking and exploring opportunities.
Also known at Scotland’s Jurassic Island, Skye is the best place in Scotland to find fossils. Fossils have been found on the island for many years, with some fantastic discoveries being made. You can find ammonites, belemnites and reptile remains along some outstandingly beautiful coastal areas. The beaches at Bearreraig Bay and Elgol are some of the best spots on the island to find fossils.
In 2015 there was a major discovery of fossilised dinosaur footprints at Score Bay, Duntulm. Well worth a look if you are visiting Duntiulm Castle.
