The quality of the food was excellent and it offers the usual range of options. Easy to spot on the main road almost across from the person station.

This was a small, privately owned, local attraction. Sadly, with the retirement of the owners both the Serpentarium and its ajoining cafe closed and have now been replaced by a delicatessen.

This is a good attraction if you like Snakes, Frogs & everything in between. A chance to hold the Animals and a chance to sponsor them.

I am so sad they closed the Skye Serpentarium. A friend of mine who was terrified of snakes held a snake here and got rid of her fear. Lovely spot for reptile lovers alike!

A room full of wonderful creatures. Thoroughly enjoyed by my family. However, my grandmother who lives on the island has said it is being closed for new office space. Boo!

This was a great experience. The staff were very knowledgable and friendly. It is small, so you can walk round it in seconds. I would recommend that you take your time and ask the staff any questions you might have.
