Reasons to visit

Home to twelve Munros, including the famous Black Cuillin range with the Inaccessible Pinnacle, Skye is the ultimate playground for the outdoor enthusiast. But there's another side to Skye which includes its world-class restaurants, art studios, castles and crofting museums which chart the tumultuous history of its people from clan battles to the Highland Clearances. Skye is captivating on so many levels.

From the Old Man of Storr to Kilt Rock with its spectacular waterfall cascading into the sea. Follow the 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 out for the 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.
