Where to stay in Isle of Skye

If you have a car, you can stay almost anywhere on Isle of Skye and still be able to access the major highlights on a day trip. The main town of Portree offers the widest range of options, with a host of bed and breakfasts and inns offering cozy rooms in well-restored old houses. There, you'll enjoy views over Loch Portree and convenient access to any number of pubs and restaurants in town. For something a bit quieter, consider the coastal town of Dunvegan. If visiting during the warmer months--between June and September--reserve your room in advance.
