Magnificent and spectacular , the heartland of Gaelic and with a strong Norse feel in its place names and appearance. A favourite of Hollywood directors and no wonder. Skye beguiles (and also frustrates if the weather doesn’t play ball). It’s not as wet as many parts of mainland Western Scotland; it’s windier and that is often its saving grace; hang around a bit and the cloud will lift suddenly to reveal a jaw dropping panorama around every corner of the road.
Two full days – or 1.5 at a pinch – will let you whirl round the ‘best’ sights – to me, that is the Elgol area with Loch Coruisk or Camasunary; and Trotternish. If you love hiking /hillwalking, photography, exploring hidden corners, or just being in a superb environemnt, Skye could last a lifetime.I never tire of it and every visit is a new experience and a joy. Skye deserves to be walked so try to hike even some small part of it. For my own favourite walks in more detail see :- MY FAVOURITE SKYE WALKS
