Isle of Skye
To the Celts, viewing Skye from the hills, the Isle of Skye was ‘An t’Eilean Sgitheanach’, the Winged Isle. To the Vikings approaching from the sea, she was ‘Skuyo’, the Cloud Isle. You too, will find that Skye is many different islands. It has a rich history, wild storms, soft colours and fine light. It has strong traditions and a thriving Gaelic culture.

The Isle of Skye whispers of romance and retreat. Following disastrous defeat at Culloden in 1746, the fugitive Bonnie Prince Charlie, was pursued through the Highlands with a price of £30,000 on his head. Aided by the heroine Flora Macdonald, Charles Edward Stuart travelled ‘over the sea to Skye’ disguised as an Irish maid. From there he was rescued by a French ship and taken to safety. Its castles and standing stones, craft shops and old croft museums complement Skye’s fine history. You will find heritage exhibitions, outdoor centres and award winning restaurants. Above all, Skye’s main attraction has to be its amazing scenery. Throughout the year, Skye will offer a real adventure amongst jagged mountains, sweeping moors and dramatic waterfalls. The wild landscape of Skye offers many wonderful opportunities for a wide range of activities:
