Isle of Skye
Imagine a place of soft sand beaches, majestic mountains, abundant wildlife, and millions of years of history trodden into its soil. And imagine that this place is so awe-inspiring in its beauty that National Geographic magazine once voted it the fourth best island in the world. Well, imagine no more and instead book yourself a holiday on the Isle of Skye. The largest island of the Inner Hebrides, Skye is still only 50 miles long, but you’d never know it from the seemingly never-ending vastness and magnificence of the scenery. This is very much what Skye is known for: the rugged Cuillin mountain range, the incredible sea cliffs and deserted beaches and range of outdoor activities that come hand in hand with this sort of Highland landscape. If you’re looking for fresh air and natural beauty then accommodation on Skye is the place to start.
Birdwatchers and animal lovers will be in heaven – on the water you’re likely to see seals, dolphins, otters and golden or sea eagles, and on land there are red deer, Scottish wildcats, pine martens and mountain hares to track. Likewise Skye accommodation is paradise for outdoor enthusiasts and you can get involved in everything from sea fishing, boat trips, diving and kayaking to climbing, scrambling, cycling and horse riding. There is so much to do and see, and all sorts of ways to explore, whether you’re looking for an adrenaline rush or just want to discover the delightful peaks, coves and coastline of the island at a leisurely pace. And no holiday on the Isle of Skye would be complete without sampling the freshly caught seafood, home reared game, and locally distilled ale and whisky that Skye is famous for. For your next British holiday book accommodation on Skye – you will not be disappointed.
