The Isle of Skye is a place of brooding beauty where epic natural vistas and a proud history combine. The largest island of the Inner Hebrides, Skye is located just off the north-western coast of Scotland. Days are spent exploring castle ruins, touring world-renowned whisky distilleries, and sampling fantastic Scottish cuisine. As the island has grown in popularity, the main town of Portree has grown from a sheltered fishing village into a charming tourist centre.

Hikers and lovers of the outdoors are spoilt for choice thanks to the dramatic coastal walks and peculiar mountain ranges covering most of the island. Don’t miss the iconic rock formations of the Old Man of Storr and the Quiraing – and bring your camera to capture the views for posterity.
