Isle of Skye in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... for the dedicated activists who had protested for a decade that the extortionate toll bridge charges were destroying their already fragile economy. Once again it is free to visit to beautiful island again. The Caledonian MacBrayne ferry from Mallaig - Armadale operates between the 15th May and 11th September and takes around 30 minutes. The cost of a car for a single journey is currently £18.40 per vehicle plus £3.40 per person, but there are many saver fares available including a six journey ticket for £68.

There is something about the Isle of Skye that is magical and I have very fond memories of spending holidays there as a child. I therefore make no apologies for the length of this review which, I hope will be a guide for anyone visiting, or thinking about visiting this beautiful island. It is affectingly known in Gaelic as Eilean a' Cheņ, which literally translates into English as the Island of the mist and today Skye, the largest of the Inner Hebridean Islands is often referred to as "The Misty Isle". Geographical Location & Getting There The Isle of Skye lies less than a mile off the north-west coast of Scotland and is ... Read the complete review

Last year we went to Jersey for holiday - and it rained every day. After returning we decided to have a few days in Skye and - You've guessed it! - It rained every day as well - the only difference is that the rain is definately warmer in Jersey. Using the internet we decided to check a number of different sites for accomodation, and after checking a number of these we narrowed our choice down to several in Broadford, (Broadford is about 7 miles from the Skye Bridge) with BENVIEW being the winner. It even has its own website at http://www.isleofskye.net/benview/ Which Ben? you may ask - well - there's a choice of six from the panoramic window ... Read the complete review

Skye, the most scenic and spectacular of all the Scottish islands, is sometimes called the Misty Isle. That may give you a clue as to the predominant weather pattern here. It rains a lot. When the mists lift a little, the views are astounding and this explains why tourism is such a large part of the economy of the island. In the summer the main roads can become choked with caravans and coach tours but there is always enough space on the island to escape the crowds. The most popular destination is the Cuillins, the largest concentration of mountain peaks in Britain. There are over 20 Munros - peaks over 3000ft - in this range, and they ...

(Okay, here goes with a potentially dangerous technique - telling a few unpleasant truths about Scotland's most beautiful island!) What can you really say about a place so utterly unique? When the sun shines on Skye, it's like nowhere else on the planet - it's a cliche to say it, but it's almost spiritually beautiful. There's always trouble in paradise, though - and it's the very factors that make Skye (and the Highlands and Islands in general) so wonderfully, addictively unique that cause the frustration. Because of its location and geography, Skye has more than its fair share of bad weather. You can get staggeringly ... Read the complete review

I have been to Sky in the second day of my Scotland Trip which made in June, 2000. It was the best journey of my life and Scotland especially Edinburgh ans Isle Sky was the most interesting places I have ever been to. Isle of Sky is One of the largest Scottish islands. It is also very well known by travelers. What makes Skye famous is its mountain scenery which I was amazed by. As far as I know, so many people go the the isle to climb or walk in the Cuillin and the Quiraing. There are very many many craft shops and cottage museums in the isle. Skye is on the west coast of Scotland. You can only get to Skye via 3 different ... Read the complete review
