The Beautiful Isle of Skye

Home to twelve Munros, including the famous Black Cuillin range with Britain's most notorious climb, the Inaccessible Pinnacle, the Isle of Skye is the ultimate playground for outdoor enthusiasts. There's another side to Skye however. World-class restaurants, art studios, castles and crofting museums, charting the history of its people, from clan battles to the Highland Clearances. Skye is captivating on so many levels.

Visit incredible landmarks - from the Old Man of Storr to the famous Kilt Rock, with its spectacular waterfall cascading into the sea. Follow dinosaur footprints at low tide on Staffin Beach or head to the Quiraing, an iconic landscape made famous by films such as 'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword', 'Prometheus', 'The BFG' and 'Game of Thrones'. 

Nature lovers can go otter-spotting in the harbour or take a boat trip to look for sea eagles, porpoises and seals that live off the coast. Travel to Waternish and take a boat trip to St Kilda, famous as the UK's only UNESCO world heritage site and home to nearly a million seabirds, including the UK's largest colony of Atlantic puffins.
