Isle of Skye

Skye is a spectacular island just off the north west coast of Scotland, joined to the mainland by the Skye bridge. It is rugged and beautiful and popular with tourists, travellers, walkers and mountaineers alike. The Black Cuillin are Scotland’s and the UK’s finest range of mountains with sharp jagged rocky peaks rising from sea level to over 3000 feet. There are also the Red Cuillin, more rounded peaks sculpted from granite that lie to the east of Glen Sligachan. Elsewhere there are the spectacular eroding and crumbling remains of basaltic lava flows such as the Old Man of Storr and Quiraing, Jurassic dinosaur footprints at Staffin, fossils, beaches, castles and more.
