Many around the globe celebrate their kinship with the clans and families of Skye and West Scotland. McDonald, MacLeod, Mackinnon and Mackenzie, McAskill, MacCrimmon, MacArthur, MacLennan, MacRae, Beaton, Martin, MacInnes…the descendants of those who sought new opportunities in the New Worlds, fled warfare or were cruelly driven from their homes during the Clearances.

Sail to the ramparts of Eilean Donan castle, spectacularly sited on an island at the meeting of three sea lochs, and then perhaps on to the Museum of the Isles at Armadale Castle on Skye…. walk through the ruins of the cleared coastal villages of Boreraig and Suisnish, and step into that crofting past at the Museum of Island Life at Kilmuir.…

Or if you have researched your family tree and found branches reaching into this wonderful region – but have then been left stumped – perhaps continue your search for long-lost relatives at the Skye and Lochalsh Archive Centre, Portree.

Whatever draws you here, as a small vessel accommodating just four guests, Red Moon offers a unique level of personal attention and comfort, with bespoke, individually-tailored itineraries to satisfy your own interests.
