Self Catering in Isle Of Skye

Romance, history, folklore and more.

Famously a place where a bonnie boat was once willed to speed to, nowadays either a ferry from Mallaig or the Skye Bridge at Kyle of Lochalsh will take you from the mainland to your destination on the idyllic Isle of Skye. 

From the picturesque harbour town of Portree to the castle and gardens at Dunvegan, there are plenty of places for couples, families and dogs to explore. Castles and crofts from days gone by are found around the island and an insight into the life of a crofter in the time of thatched cottages and cutting peat for the fire can be found at the Skye Museum of Island Life at Kilmuir. Once a land of clans, the MacLeods and the MacDonalds still hold gatherings on the island near their former ancestral homes. 

Skye is nothing if not romantic. Why just climb a hill or visit a beach when you could instead pay a visit to The Old Man of Storr or listen for the Sound of Sleat?  There are no fewer than twelve Munros on Skye to attempt, although the skills of the rock climber as well those of the rambler are required to truly reach the top of Sgùrr Dearg. Its so called ‘In Pin’ (or Inaccessible Pinnacle) means it’s generally regarded as one of the hardest prospects for Munro baggers to tick off.

After all that you’ll have earned a visit to the Talisker Distillery to see how that single malt is made or you might choose to enjoy a meal at the world-renowned The Three Chimneys restaurant.  

A magic and mystic destination for a self-catering holiday. What else would you expect from the place known in Gaelic as Eilean a' Cheò or Island of the Mist?
