Cafe
“You shouldn't leave without having had a wander around the Gardens and a wee visit to the museum. A great day out for all the family, young and old. Great for a morning or afternoon if you fancy a quieter day. The Gasta cafe also host live music most weekends.”

“Renown dinosaur expert Dougie Ross will enthrall you with his knowledge of the now famous dinosaur fossil finds here on north Skye. You'll spend the next few days looking everywhere for your own 'finds'. An absolute must! ”

Museum
“This is my favourite place (sshhh, don't tell everyone!). It's a circular walk on a fairly easy path with great views and at the end of the trail are the ruins of an abandoned village. It's never very busy (unlike the Fairy Pools and Old Man of Storr). It's often sheltered here and misses the worst of the weather. Turn right out of the driveway and after 0.5 miles or 1km turn left. After 5 miles you'll see the sign on the left. Take the track and there is a car park at the end. Park here, walk and enjoy the experience. Allow 2 hours. (I don't know why the address on the marker shows as East Kilbride, it's not! DO NOT use this post code, it is incorrect).”
