#5-star must-see visitor attraction
Visitors to Skyeskyns are transported back in time to witness how real sheepskins are made using time honoured methods of leather making - one of the oldest crafts known to man.
Here you can enjoy a free guided tour of our workshop where you will see all the traditional implements used by the Tanner: the beam, paddles, racks and buffing wheel, horse and iron as well as the lengthy hand finishing processes, which help to create the world famous Highland hand-combed fleece, which is exclusive to Skyeskyns.
After your tour why not visit our showroom and browse through our comprehensive range of luxurious fleeces and quality leather goods. You’ll find the perfect place too for that exclusive and lasting keepsake of your visit to the magical Isle of Skye.
Please note that the main entrance to the Tannery has level access from the car park The showroom is up a flight of stairs but our staff are always happy to bring down selections of fleeces for customers with limited mobility.
Our Yurt does have a disabled access ramp which can be set up on request.
Our tour information and Yurt menu can be made available in large print on request.
