The Isle of Skye is a truly magical place. The largest of the Inner Hebrides, it’s home to some of Scotland’s most iconic landscapes with its rugged mountain ranges, miles of dramatic coastline and captivating history. If there’s one thing about a Skye holiday that’ll leave a lasting impression on you, it’s got to be the scenery. The island is home to many majestic geological features, such as the Old Man of Storr, the Quiraing and the Cuillin. Skye’s varied habitats also mean we’ll have a chance to see amazing animals such as otters, dolphins, golden eagles, white-tailed sea eagles and puffins.
As there are so many amazing routes to choose from, the itinerary will be decided upon when we are there according to weather conditions. However, be prepared for some stunning moderate walks which may include some of the following highlights: the Fairy Pools, Talisker Bay, The Old Man of Storr, Corie Lagan, The Quiraing, Blaven, Macleod’s Tables, coral beaches, island trip to Raasay, boat trip to the breathtakingly beautiful Loch Crousik (not included).

We stay in a beautiful, self catering house where there is plenty of space to relax and enjoy the views. The rooms are elegantly decorated and the bedrooms very spacious – ideal for sharing. Delicious 2 course evening meals are provided by our own on site cook, Vicky on 6 of the 7 nights. The other night, we head out to a local eatery for a taste of Scottish hospitality.

The Isle of Skye is close to the Scottish mainland, the largest of the Inner Hebrides, and is joined by a road bridge from the Kyle of Lochalsh. There are car ferries from Mallaig to Armadale run by Caledonian MacBrayne and for the adventurous there is the Glenachulish, the last manually operated turntable ferry in Scotland, from Glenelg to Kylerhea taking four cars at a time. The house is 50 miles from Kyle of Lochalsh and 130 miles from Inverness. Take the A9 and A835 via Garve and Strathcarron. There is no public transport to the accommodation so, if you are coming by train, a taxi from/ to Kyle of Lochalsh costs around £140. Depending on how many people are coming by train, there may be the option of a shared taxi or a lift from other women who are driving. We will aim to make this work as cheaply as possible for everyone.
