Skye is a destination for many people who love the outdoors and the romance of an island holiday without needing to travel on a boat to get there. Some people argue that the Isle of Skye is no longer an island as it is connected to the Scottish mainland by the Skye Bridge near the Kyle of Lochalsh. Well I for one still view Skye as an island and it retains an island feel about the place.

Skye has some of the best hill walking and mountain climbing available in the UK, many of these munros are considered difficult to expert and need to be treated with respect, and if new to hill walking then hire a hill walking guide or go with a hill walking club.

The island holds many attractions for visitors who just want to explore Skye from their vehicle or bike. Many others love walking the island roads and appreciate the breathtaking scenery and wildlife seen from the road, or tracks.
