The Island of Skye is the largest and northernmost of the Scottish Inner Hebrides, widely regarded as one of Europe’s top island destinations.
A land of geological wonders and incredible biodiversity, Skye has everything you need for a spectacular outdoor adventure. The famed Cuillin mountain range attracts the hardiest of hikers from around the world, whilst the captivating Dunvegan Castle provides fun for all the family.
However, without a doubt, Skye’s biggest pull factor is its natural beauty. You’ll see vast, rolling moors and sparkly lochs, usually accompanied by red deer, Scottish wildcats and mountain hares.
Given the island’s location between the two, Skye is a good departure point for mainland Scotland and the Outer Hebrides. Regular crossings are provided from Skye’s ports in Armadale on the south coast and from Uig to the north.
