View to Sleat peninsula from mainland at Lochalsh

The Sleat peninsula lies to the southwest of the island of Skye in Highland Council Area. Stretching for 14 miles (22 km) in a northeasterly southwesterly direction, the peninsula is connected to the island by an isthmus between the heads of Loch Eishort and Loch na Dal. The Point of Sleat, situated at the southern tip of the Sleat Peninsula, is also the most southerly point of the island of Skye. A car ferry connects the mainland at Mallaig with Armadale on the peninsula's southern coastline. Points of interest include the Clan Donald Centre at Armadale, Knock Castle at Knock Bay 4 miles (6.5 km) to the northeast and on the northern coastline, Dunsgaith Castle.
