Isle of Skye
There are lots of places of interest on Skye. Here are a few suggestions to help you start planning your adventure or relaxing break…
South Skye is very different to the North of the Island. The peninsula of Sleat is known as the Garden of Skye, with a much softer, greener landscape and lots of woodland areas. The village of Kyleakin meets the famous Skye Bridge, to the mainland.
Central Skye is home to the Cuillins mountain range and some picturesque villages such as Elgol where you can take a boat trip out to enjoy the scenery. The largest town on the island, Portree, is lively place with a fine harbour and good selection of restaurants.
North West Skye
The North West of the island is steeped with rugged, dramatic scenery and is home to Talisker Distillery, Neist Point Lighthouse and Dunvegan Castle, as well as lots of lovely little villages with arts and crafts along the way
