About Skye

There's a whole lot to

See & do on Skye

Skye is a much larger island than many people imagine, so you won't be able to see all of it in one day and you'll be driving for much of the time.  That is why I offer a discount for an extended visit - visit south and near the Cuillins for one day and travel north to the Trotternish and Waternish peninsulars on the second day.

Sleat, or South Skye, has a great deal to offer the traveller.  

Go to www.sleatperfectlyskye.com for more information about what's happening in the Sleat area.

The Isle of Skye

Rated one of the Top 10 island destinations in the world by the National Geographic, Skye is the second-largest island in Scotland and the coastline is a series of peninsulas and bays radiating out from a centre dominated by the Cuillin Hills.

It has provided the locations for various novels and feature films and is celebrated in poetry and song.

Travel by road to Skye via the A87 to the Skye Bridge (20 minutes from the B&B). Alternatively, take the A830 'Road to the Isles' from Fort William to Mallaig and catch the ferry to Armadale on Skye (www.calmac.co.uk), also 20 minutes away.  I strongly advise you to book your ferry crossing in advance as this route is very popular.

If you want to take in all the highland scenery, take the train from Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh, just over the Bridge (www.scotrail.co.uk), or the Jacobite Steam Train, famous in the Harry Potter films and frequently voted as the most scenic train journey in the world, from Fort William to Mallaig and then catch the ferry. (www.westcoastrailways.co.uk/jacobite/jacobite-steam-train-details.cfm).

Fly to Inverness (a very picturesque 2-hour drive away) via easyJet (www.easyjet.com) or from Birmingham, Jersey, Manchester or Southampton. Glasgow Airport (www.glasgowairport.com) is a 4-hour drive away or Edinburgh Airport (www.edinburghairport.com) is 5 hours away and car hire can be arranged easily at all three airports.
