Mammals

Skye has a limited range of mammals away from the marine environment. The status of Badger is still unclear, though they are probably present at a very low number. Pine Martens have colonised since the bridge was built and they are seen from time to time in the wooded area of Skye, especially in Sleat. Both Red and Roe Deer are seen regularly from the croft. Foxes are quite a regular sight away from the croftland, as are Stoats and Weasels. Both Mountain and Brown Hares occur though are rare.
