The Isle of Skye Scotland

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

Skye is the largest, and arguably best known, of Scotland's Inner Hebrides.

You join Skye from the mainland via the Skye bridge. 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.

The Isle of Skye offers some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery. The soaring peaks of the Cuillin Hills, the dramatic geology of the Old Man of Storr and The Quiraing , an extraordinary assembly of pinnacles, rock towers and secret places. Visit stately Dunvegan Castle or the extensive gardens at the Clan Donald Centre. Don’t forget to take time-out to explore Portree with its pretty harbour and local craft shops.
