Isle of Skye Scotland

The Isle of Skye


The romantic Isle of Skye is on everyone’s must-see list.

It’s the largest, and arguably best known, of the Inner Hebrides.

The Cuillin Hills dominate the landscape. Explore Trotternish to see strange peaks, peculiar rock formations and fairy-tale waterfalls. Skye has strong links with clan battles, the Jacobite Rising and the Highland Clearances.

The isle has also provided inspiration for poetry, songs, novels and films.

The isle’s main town Portree has a character all its own. Seek out the colourful harbour, home to a fleet of fishing boats.

Enjoy their daily catch in one of the town’s many restaurants.

Things to see...

Dunvegan Castle

A castle has perched on a rock overlooking Loch Dunvegan since the 13th century. It’s been home to the Chiefs of Clan MacLeod for 800 years. Its many treasures include the Fairy Flag, said to bring good luck to the clan in times of trouble.

Eilean Donan Castle

Gateway to Skye, Eilean Donan may not be a name you know, but it is an iconic castle known around the world. Set on an island where three lochs meet, it is regarded as one of the most beautiful castles in Scotland.

Clan Donald Centre

Armadale Castle is the spiritual Skye home of Clan Donald. Discover 1,500 years of Highland history in the Museum of the Isles. Enjoy a walk through woodland trails, ancient ruins and colourful gardens.
