Skye famed for magnificent mountaineering offered by the Black Cuillin. Stunning mountain scenery.
An island of which cyclists and walkers will enjoy and see most, which has wild and wandering roads enjoyed also by the determined motorist.
Beautiful views of the Cuillin can be seen from Elgol, and the road from Staffin climbs half way up Quiraing at 1,799 feet.
Skye was the home of Flora Macdonald, and at Dunvegan Castle the legendary fairy flag of the Mcleods of Dunvegan still hangs.
Photographers will also enjoy the distinct possibility of snapping the beautiful Golden Eagle.
Portree is the islands market town.
Kyleakin sits on the east of Skye, the strait of that Norse KIng Haco, who was defeated at the Battle of Largs in 1263, the village of the name looks well across the half-mile of water which seperates it from the mainland at Kyle of Lochalsh. Todays modern bridge is a success for the island commuter.
