Isle of Skye

4.2
Blessed with picturesque lochs and a dramatic, rocky coastline, the far-flung Isle of Skye remains one of Scotland's most beloved destinations. First inhabited as long as 9,000 years ago, the island has a rich history of Irish, Norse, and Scottish domination. Isle of Skye tourist attractions include ancient castles, mysterious cave networks, and panoramic viewpoints. For many, the highlight of a trip to Isle of Skye is a chance to sample some locally distilled whisky and a home-cooked meal at a cozy pub. Isle of Skye is in The Hebrides.

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.
