The Isle of Skye
On The Map: The Isle of Skye is a large island located off the west coast of Scotland. Skye is accessed via a landbridge (A87 road) from Kyle of Lochalsh on the mainland, or by ferry from Mallaig, reached via the A830 road from Fort William.
“Cloud Island” is the name Norse settlers gave to the Isle of Skye. It is fitting. A 50-mile-long banquet of velvet moors, jagged mountains, shimmering lochs and towering sea cliffs produce stunning scenery. If the weather turns, there are plenty of castles, crafting museums, and cozy pubs and restaurants to please anyone. Along with Edinburgh and Loch Ness, Skye is one of the places in Scotland that people enjoy visiting the most. A wild geological past has produced some of Britain’s most dramatic scenery. From rugged Northern Skye to the ice-sculpted peaks of the Cuillins, the island is riveted with many lochs. The traveler is never more than five miles from the ocean. Skye is everything we think of the Highlands to be: Wild, fierce, and mesmerizing. Overnight stays on Skye are at the island’s main town – Portree. The location of Bonnie Prince Charlie’s final days in Scotland in 1746, Portree today is a bustling port and Skye’s cultural hub.
