Places to visit and stay on the Isle of Skye

"It was amazing having a personal tour-guide that also knew all of the historical background of the sites that we visited. He was friendly and fun to hang out with, knew where to go, you don't have the stress of driving yourself or figuring out roads, and once he gets to know about you, he adds in places to stop along the way that you are interested in."      Tracy, USA
 With so much to see, it is worth adding an overnight stop on the Isle of Skye to your tour of Scotland
skye neighbours are friendly
A land created from fire and ice, Skye is the largest of the inner Hebridean Islands and an incredible sight. From the fascinating lava flow rock formations created from fissures in the earth's crust, during the creation of the Atlantic, to the imposing black gabbro rock of the Black Cuillin ridge; the remnants of the magma chamber of a massive volcano; this, together with the granite of the Red Cuillin create some of the most dramatic landscapes in Britain.

Following massive post-glacial landslides, the Quiraing and Old Man of Storr were created. These are fascinating walks in a magical landscape and not to be missed. Nor is the jurassic coast where dinosaur footprints have been found at An Corrin, Staffin Bay.
