Not only does the Highlands boast magnificent mountains, grand sea lochs and gorgeous beaches, but this region also boasts a number of picturesque islands.

Skye - Scotland’s second largest island - also happens to be one of the most beautiful and romantic islands in the country. Renowned for its mountains, in particular the stark peaks of the famous Cuillin range which attracts climbers from around the globe. But it isn’t just Cuillin. Skye is also where you’ll find the astonishing geological marvel of the Trotternish peninsula where massive landslips centuries ago resulted in the most fantastical rock formations and pinnacles.

Skye is also home to some of the darkest skies in Europe, the lack of light pollution makes it perfect for admiring the beauty of the night sky. There’s also Dunvegan Castle, the Armadale Castle Gardens at Clan Donald Skye and Talisker Distillery.

It’s also worth taking the ferry from Sconser on Skye to the Isle of Raasay. This small idyllic island, separated from Skye by the Sound of Raasay, was for several centuries ruled by the dominant MacLeods and boasts breathtaking scenery. 

Shieldaig Island is located just off the village of Shieldaig on Loch Torridon. This beautiful island is covered with rocky outcrops and Caledonian Pine trees and is managed by the National Trust for Scotland. Just south of Skye lie the Small Isles, which consist of Eigg, Rum, Muck and Canna.
