Edinburgh Weekend Trip to The Isle of Skye

from £99.00


The Isle of Skye takes its name from the old Norse sky-a, meaning ‘cloud island’, a Viking reference to the often-mist-enshrouded Cuillin Hills. It’s the second-largest of Scotland’s islands and boasts with magnificent views over the Scottish west coast.

The hills and glens and wild coastline of Scotland’s Highlands and islands offer the ultimate escape – one of the last corners of Europe where you can discover genuine solitude.

Since the 19th century – when the first tourists began to arrive, inspired by the Romantic movement’s search for the sublime – the Scottish Highlands have been famed for their wild nature and majestic scenery. Today the region’s biggest draw remains its magnificent landscape. At almost every turn is a vista that will stop you in your tracks, from the bluebell woods, gentle hills and warm autumn colours. Scotland’s mountains, lochs and seaways offer some of the most rewarding outdoor adventures in Europe.
