Top 10 Recommended Things To Do in Isle of Skye


Things To Do in Isle of Skye
Whilst PictureTheUK is aimed, clearly, at the UK, the team behind this website have travelled extensively around the world. In our opinion, the Isle of Skye is one of the finest holiday destinations you'll find. From its mountains to its coast, its history to its wildlife, time spent here is unforgettable. If you can stay in Elgol, the views are outstanding.

The Quiraing

One of the most unusual and dramatic landscapes we've experienced in decades of researching the UK. Part of the Trotternish Ridge National Scenic Area to the north of Skye.

The Cuillin (Black)

The Cuillin of Skye are magnificent. Split into the Black Cuillin and the Red Cuillin, we'd recommend driving to, or staying in, Elgol. Across the water, you'll see the Black Cuillin.

Museum Of Island Life

Offers an insight into the life of islanders at the end of the nineteenth century with great views to the Western Isles.

Dunvegan Castle

Dunvegan Castle is said to be the oldest continuously inhabited castle in Europe.

Boat To The Cuillin (Black)

Breathtaking boat trips are available from Elgol to The Cuillin (Black). Several companies offer this service including Bella Jane Boat Trips and Misty Isle Boat Trips.

Old Man Of Storr

The Old Man Of Storr is a pinnacle, the remains of an ancient volcanic plug.

Aros, Isle of Skye

Aros, a short distance from Portree on the Isle of Skye, is an award winning attraction with shops and a display of local history and wildlife.

Talisker Distillery

Built in 1830, Talisker Distillery is situated to the north west of the Isle of Skye. Produces the single malt whisky 'Talisker'.
