Explore the natural wonders of the Isle of Skye
Spend your days exploring the lush woodlands and valleys in the south, the spectacular Cuillin Mountains in the middle and the wild Trotternish Peninsula in the north for a varied camping break. The rocky landscape of the island offers plenty of opportunities for walking as well as mountain biking, horseback riding and rock climbing, among other things.
The Isle of Skye is also an excellent destination for wildlife watchers, with fascinating fauna including the elusive Scottish wildcat, red deer, pine martens, puffins, sea and golden eagles, dolphins, and whales. Many of these animals can be seen on boat trips as well as tours designed specifically for wildlife watching, with several tour operators offering experiences in the area.
The fascinating history & culture of the Isle of Skye
The history of the Isle of Skye is truly fascinating, with constant reminders of the past still visible throughout the island, from Pictish stone structures from 2000 years ago to brooding medieval castles. Many people come to Skye in hopes of tracing their family lineage and can learn about the warring clans and crofting communities who lived a simple life here for centuries in the many museums on the island.
The Isle of Skye is also a real hub for creativity, with numerous galleries selling local artists’ and makers’ wares, often inspired by the Celtic heritage still highly visible on the island. Visit the island’s capital, Portree, for a good glimpse of the local culture as well as a gentle walk along its picture-perfect harbour. While there, make sure to savour some of the great local produce, particularly the fresh shellfish.
