The road from Uig to Flodigarry passes the grave of Flora McDonald at Kilmuir Cemetery which caries the inscription:
Her name will be mentioned in history, and if courage and loyalty are still virtues, it will be led with reverence
This inscription recalls her part in aiding the escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie following his defeat at the Battle of Culloden in April 1746.
The route also incudes the Skye Museum of Island life, Duntulm Castle – once seat of the chiefs of Clan MacDonald of Sleat and the abandoned factory of Ann Leth-Altt where local people once worked igging and drying a white powder called diatomite – known locally in Gaelic as cailc (chalk).
