Famous for its dramatic landscapes, picturesque fishing villages and medieval castles, the Isle of Skye is one of the top and most scenic locations to visit in Scotland. The largest of Scottish islands, and most well-known for its mountain landscapes, the Isle of Skye also offers plenty of impressive castles, interesting museums, excellent traditional pubs and restaurants, as well as dozens of art galleries and craft shops. The island has rich history to uncover, but is also a great destination for wildlife watching and a world-class destination for hikers and climbers. Of course it is also home to some excellent whisky distilleries definitely worth visiting! It is a place where the old world perfectly collides with the new world as forward thinking architects, chefs, and cultural custodians combine their efforts in making this remote island a contemporary Scottish holiday destination.
