Isle of Skye, Highlands Of Scotland
isle of skye scotland The Isle of Skye is a beautiful island located just off the west coast of the highlands of Scotland. Probably most famous for its mountain ranges known as The Cuillins, Skye is an incredibly popular destination with tourists visiting the highlands and islands of Scotland. Beautiful landscapes and seascapes, fantastic beaches and friendly locals make the Isle of Skye a great destination for a short break in Scotland.

Over The Sea To Skye
Its a romantic idea, in the words of the song, to sail over the sea to Skye. Although there is now a modern road bridge connecting the mainland to Skye it is still possible to journey by boat from several locations. For example, the ferry from Glenelg to Skye is probably one of the most scenic and visually pleasing ferry crossings in the world. Running from Easter until October this ferry journey may take you off the beaten track a little but the experience is well worth it.

If you fancy a boat trip with a difference why not head to kyle of Lochalsh on the mainland and take a ride on the famous glass-bottomed boat? Incredible views of seals, otters and many other wild animals are there for all to see. There is even a trip around a World War II vessel that lies on the bottom.
