Characterised by its dramatic and unique scenery, the Isle of Skye is the largest of the Inner Hebrides and exudes a rare magical allure. The rugged terrain, dotted with rust-coloured Highland cattle, heather-clad moors, mysterious castles and a frequent swirling mist, is a paradise for anyone with a thirst for adventure and has been the setting of many Hollywood blockbusters.
You'll definitely need a comfortable place to stay after all the excitement that comes with a day on Skye. You can stay in a cosy B&B in the island's biggest town, Portree, or find yourself in a friendly backpacker's hostel with views across to the dramatic sight of the Cuillin mountains. There are also self-catering options or holiday cottages available in the countryside, if you want to take things at your own pace.
