Intriguing Isle of Skye

The intriguing Isle of Skye can be experienced in the captivating twinkle in a peaceful loch or the unpredictability of an encroaching cloud mass. This interwoven patchwork of stunning scenery includes mysterious mountains and breath-taking cliffs all crammed into one small island in Scotland’s Inner Hebrides.

Boasting top billing alongside Edinburgh and Loch Ness, this top Scottish destination is the third most visited attraction in this enchanting country. While the weather will dissuade some tourists, its attractiveness lies in the tiny coastal bays and inland moors.

The history of the MacLeod and Donald Clans can be captured in old castle ruins dotted around the island or enjoy intact Highland history by visiting Dunvegan or Armadale Castle on the island. Eilean Donan Castle, located in Dornie on the main tourist route to the island, is another impressive example.

Swamped in Gaelic tradition, the main town of Portree, with its picturesque harbour, is the central tourist hot spot for exploring the island. Visitors generally enter the island by the controversial Skye Bridge, originally a toll bridge, which links the mainland to the island. Ferries are a popular alternative.

Booking.com comprises a range of accommodation to suit all budgets, both on the Island of Skye and at various locations in the Scottish Highlands.
