Many of my Guests appreciated the qualities of travel on the Isle of Skye long before the National Geographic Magazine voted it the fourth best island to visit in the world. Stunning scenery, great places to stay, amazing wild-life, fine dining, hiking, sailing, photography; many places claim they have something for everyone; Skye really has.

Most of our Guests however are happy experiencing what Skye has to offer on a two-night stay with one full day to see the sites. If you have longer to spend on Skye, there is always something new to see.

The photograph at the top of this page shows the ferry arriving at Uig in the northwest of Skye. This ferry service connects with the Islands of Harris and North Uist in the Outer Hebrides making Skye a great starting point for a visit to Scotland’s more out of the way Islands.

The Itinerary below is aimed at those visitors who only have time for a short trip to Skye before returning to the mainland again. However, like all of our Tours, the brief Itinerary can extended as required to create your ideal trip to the Scottish Islands. Click here to see an example of our Island Hopper Tour. Remember, even that Itinerary can be amended to suit your own time limitations, likes and dislikes.
