Breathtaking Views at Isle of Skye
The Isle of Skye is the largest and without doubt the best known of the Inner Hebrides Islands.
Skye was recently voted the fourth best island in the world to visit by National Geographic magazine. It is renowned for its stunning natural beauty and offers an array of wildlife, history, geology, mind-blowing scenery, hillwalking and a variety of other outdoor activities including Golf on the most picturesque 9 hole course at Sconsor.
Located just off the west coast of mainland Scotland ( ow also serviced by the Skye bridge), Skye’s landscape is distinctly Highland with its lochs, heather-clad moors and towering peaks.
The scenic landscape of Skye provides a home for an abundant array of wildlife ranging from red deer and Scottish wildcats to pine martens and mountain hares. The influence of the sea is never far away with sea fishing and a wide range of other watersports being catered for on Skye. Wildlife cruises sail from various locations and visitors might be able to spot seals, dolphins, otters, golden eagles or sea eagles. The capital of Skye is Portree which boasts a picture postcard, pastel cottage-lined harbour.
