Introduction –

One of the best decisions that you can ever make is to visit the Isle of Skye. The Isle of Skye is very popular and is well-known for its mediaeval castles, rugged landscapes, its history, appealing fishing villages, and its outstanding beauty. Also, the Isle of Skye is linked to Scotland’s northwest coast by both the Malaig-Armadale ferry and the Skye Bridge. It is one of the largest islands of the Scottish Inner Hebrides. Whether it’s sunny, rainy, mild, or windy, the scenery and landscapes here will take your breath away. You can also choose to go hiking, and there are a number of hiking opportunities available here. Some of the people’s favourites are Quirang, the old man of Storr, and many more.

Hiking and Fairy Pool:

In hiking, the “Old Man of Storr” is a huge highpoint of appealing rocks that stands high and one can see from miles around. Plus, you should take your camera with you to capture the beautiful views. Isle of Skye is also a hub for wildlife, you can spot sea eagles, red deer, hairy coos and much more. If you want to check out some of the most popular attractions on the Isle of Skye, you should check out the Fairy Pools; these pools have pristine water. It is also surrounded by the Cuillin mountains by Glenbrittle, and this stunning spot is something that is worth visiting. You should never try to swim under the natural arch of the Fairy Pools unless you are brave enough.

Fairy Glen, the Land of Fairies

Another one of the best places that you can visit on the Isle of Skye is the Fairy Glen, so named because of the island’s myths and history connected with fairies. Plus, this name suits the unusual and small landscape very well. You can find that on the west side of the Trotternish at Balnacnoc. Most of the time, Fairy Glen has been described as delightful, cute, and simply beautiful. As you go through the woodland, make sure that you keep an eye out for real fairies, and you may be lucky and end up meeting one in the gnarly trees. Besides all of that, there are some famous and popular movies that have been filmed here in the Isle of the Skye and those are the King Arthur, Legend of the Sword, Transformer and the Last Knight, Outlaw King, the Macbeth, the BFG. It is a popular filming destination, too.

Love & Listen the Scottish Music & See Dolphins –

When you come back from hiking, you can also enjoy some of the live Scottish music. Here the atmosphere is good, and you will love Skye’s old-fashioned pubs. Some of the best places for traditional Scottish music are the carbost, the old inn, the edinbane inn and so on.  Besides music, if you love seeing the dolphins, then you can make a visit to Neist Point. Here you will also be able to see sharks and whales, and this is the perfect spot to visit after sunset. Make sure you have a good pair of walking boots.

Boat Trips:

Skye is the place where you can take the boat trips; you can take a trip from Elgol to Loch Corusisk, which is surrounded by the Cuillin Mountains. You can also do kayaking and water sports at the Portree Pier. You can also take a trip to the capital of the Isle of Skye, i.e., Portree. It is surrounded by impressive scenery and hills, and this little town has a number of activities for every individual.
