Scotland’s only working exhibition tannery, a unique Skye experience combining craftmanship and heritage.
Skyeskyns is a 5* Visitor Attraction based on the WAternish Peninsula on Skye. 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 and find out about the lengthy hand finishing processes, which help to create the world famous Highland hand-combed fleece. After your tour, you can visit our showroom and browse through our comprehensive range of luxurious fleeces and quality leather and woollen goods. You’ll find it the perfect place to purchase that exclusive and lasting keepsake of your visit to the magical Isle of Skye. Finish your visit with some coffee and cake from our pop-up tea tent YURTea&Coffee.
