'Cloud Island' in old Norse
Skye’s dramatic volcanic landscape has been the backdrop for many a film, including the first feature-length film in Scottish Gaelic.
There are plenty of options to take in these iconic views, however you like to explore! Take a cliff walk around Neist Point lighthouse for some minke whale spotting and take in the sunset, or book a sea tour - keep your eyes to the sky for a chance to spot soaring eagles.
The fairy pools are a fantastic spot for wild swimming. As well as the island’s obvious natural beauty, there are a number of fantastic museums to visit during your stay - from the museum of island life to preserved dinosaur footprints and fossils, there is something for everyone.
Skye is also home to castles, preserved settlements dating back to the Clearances and the infamous Talisker distillery, the oldest working distillery on the island. The perfect way to warm yourself up after a walk!
