The Isle of Skye, the largest island of the Inner Hebrides, is located off the North-West coast of Scotland. It is reached via the Skye Road Bridge (toll free), so visitors can choose to drive across or, travel the traditional way, across the water by ferry. Skye is well known for its rugged beauty and abundance of wildlife and is a popular holiday destination for walkers & climbers, wildlife enthusiasts, or people simply wanting to 'escape' from their busy lives.
Portree, the Islands capital, is a small quaint town with good amenities and lots of things to do. It has a pretty harbour with brightly painted houses and stunning scenery surrounding the town. There is also a well equipped Visitor Centre.
There are many activities available around the Island such as horse riding, sea kayaking and organised boat excursions. For golf enthusiasts, there are two golf courses open to non-members at Sconser and Skeabost. The Cuillin Mountain Range offers excellent climbing, although it is strongly recommended that inexperienced climbers use the services of one of the many qualified mountain guides. If climbing the Cuillins seems far too adventurous, there are many fantastic walks to enjoy throughout Skye for all abilities.
