Not only is the island steeped in history and Gaelic culture, but it has been recognised by the National Geographic’s travel experts’ as the 4th most beautiful island in the world. Skye is the second most popular destination in Scotland after Edinburgh, the country's capital.

Skye is a much bigger island than many realise with dramatic scenery that takes your breath away. There are some 350 miles of coastline and you are never more than 5 miles from the sea at any point. The island is a paradise for walkers, climbers, wild life enthusiasts, cyclists and sailors.
