Isle of Skye
Skye is Scotland’s largest island, full of beauty and a variety of scenery. Though often cloudy (Skye is the Norse word for cloud!) this actually can bring a sense of mystery to the island, and any rain showers are more than made up for by the spectacular mountain scenery which include the unmissable Cuillin Ridge; extensive wildlife and a range of activities including walking, cycling, pony trekking and a host of boat trips to choose from. It also has a milder climate than you might imagine for somewhere as far north, making it much more hospitable than some of the Scottish Highlands.
