The Isle of Skye is the largest island of the Inner Hebrides. Stretching almost 80 kilometres from tip to tip, this majestic isle is a dream destination for visitors looking to escape the distractions of daily life. If you're planning on booking a stay at an Isle of Skye holiday cottage, you'll be glad to know the island is served by a regular ferry service. Those driving to their holiday accommodation can also make use of direct road routes via the Skye Bridge that crosses over Loch Alsh.
The Isle of Skye is the second-largest of Scotland's island, with dramatic geography that's dominated by numerous peninsulas. Because of the island's unusual profile, Isle of Skye holiday cottages are never more than a few kilometres from the coast. This stunning Scottish isle is famed for its ancient geologic formations, including Quiraing and the Old Man of Storr. If you're looking for accommodation with a view, pick an Isle of Skye holiday cottage at the feet of the Red and Black Cuillin mountain ranges.
Enjoy the Isle of Skye from a unique vantage point by taking a chartered boat tour. The waters that surround the Isle of Skye are home to many marine species. Sea life boat tours provide visitors with a chance to get up close and personal with local wildlife, including the grey seal, common dolphin, and minke whale.
Staying at an Isle of Skye holiday cottage with the family? The Fairy Pools hiking trail will go down a storm with kids, while a trek to the ruins of Duntulum Castle makes for a rewarding day out. Planning a proposal? Dunvegan Castle and Sligachan Bridge are both perfect spots for popping the question. If you've booked a stay at pet-friendly accommodation, reach for the lead and take your four-legged to Armdale Castle or Staffin Beach for a walk to remember.
