Dedicated to making your Experience of Skye unforgettable.

About Experience Skye

Ever felt like you only scratched the surface of a place? That’s how we felt about Skye – visitors come and go, missing the real magic. We’re on a mission to change that.

We want you to leave Skye not just with photos, but with stories etched in your memory. Whether you’re here for family history, adventure, or a bit of island soul-searching, our audio guides will unlock the heart of Skye in a way no map ever could.

Your Guides

We’re Robin, David, and Dander MacDonald– a father-and-sons team with a shared love of Skye. We may not be academic historians, but Skye is in our blood.

Dander, the skipper, knows the waters around Portree better than most. Dander’s boat Birlinn is a testament to his love of the sea. It holds the Skye Highland Games Trophy and the Round Raasay Trophies of 2023.

Robin, the whisky expert of the family, has spent over a decade working in the world of drams (scotch). His voice will be your companion on most of our guides.

David, our musician and former Skye walking tour guide, dreamt up this app as a way to share his love of Skye’s stories with everyone, no matter how they explore.

Why Experience Skye?

Skye is more than an island; it’s a place that leaves its mark on you. The stories are embedded into the landscape, waiting to be discovered. We started Experience Skye to help you forge a deeper connection with this extraordinary place.

We hope you’ll find our app to be a living, breathing thing. It’s a conversation, really. We aim to continue adding more stories, more voices, more layers to this island epic. This is an introduction to Skye’s incredible story that we hope will inspire you to dive deeper into our history, language, music and culture.

We’re always listening, so let us know how we can make Experience Skye even better.

Thank you.
