Our tips for Isle of Skye

Make it an extended trip: To do justice to your trip to the breathtaking island, spend at least 3 days in the Isle of Skye. Even though the island looks tiny on a map, there are lots of great experiences and views that you just can’t miss. Safety: The cliffs afford some of the most spectacular views! But don’t stand right on the edge of the cliffs as the winds can be quite strong. A lot of people have fallen off the cliffs. Suggested itinerary: First visit the east side of Skye, drive around the island, head towards Neist Point, and then continue southwards. This way you don’t have to drive extra double miles.
