The supplement for a single traveller is £500 per holiday, based on single occupancy of double/twin rooms.
To explore the Isle of Skye, as local bus services are quite limited, we strongly recommend either hiring a car or taking a guided tour, with one of our local guides. To hire a car during your stay on Skye costs an additional £120. To join a small group guided tour of Skye costs an additional £60 per person.
Before your departure, you will receive personalised holiday information including full directions, recommended routes, and suggestions on places to visit depending on your interests and our local knowledge to help you get the most from your holiday.
