Isle of Skye
Resting just off the west coast of Scotland, the Isle of Skye is the largest of the Inner Hebridean islands and Scotland’s second most visited tourist destination after the capital city of Edinburg. This popularity is attributed to its magnificent natural environment and the island’s accessibility from the mainland by ferry or over the Sky Bridge. Despite this ease of access, the island has managed to retain its remote atmosphere. The landscape is characterised by rugged mountains, misty moors, glistening lochs and majestic sea cliffs. While this spectacular scenery is undoubtedly the island’s main drawcard, when the weather turns bad, and Scottish weather invariably will, you will find countless historical castles, crofting museums, distilleries, art galleries, cozy pubs and tempting restaurants to keep you blissfully entertained. With its vibrant culture, long and rich history, and its profusion of fascinating wildlife, the Isle of Skye has an allure that is hard to ignore.
