The Cuillins are a beautiful and distinctive range of mountains on the islands. Climbers will find jutting rocks and surfaces that can be difficult to traverse. Isle of Skye also has wide heather moors where hiking and bird watching is possible. Visitors can often enjoy folk and Gaelic songs at local venues in the towns and cities on the island.
The rugged, remote-feeling Isle of Skye has a reputation for unpredictable weather. But it also offers some of Scotland’s best scenery, and it rarely fails to charm its many visitors. Narrow, twisty roads wind around Skye in the shadows of craggy, black, bald mountains.
Drive around the appealing Trotternish Peninsula, visit a pair of castles, go for a hike in the dramatic Cuillin Hills, sample a peaty dram of whisky, and walk across a desolate buff to a lighthouse at the end of the world.
