Immortalised in the Skye Boat Song, the crossing to the Isle of Skye by ferry follows in the wake of visitors to the island for centuries past. The Isle of Skye is one of the most visited islands on the West Coast of Scotland and is well-known for its rugged scenery ideal for walkers, the Black Cuillin mountains, whisky distilleries and its culinary scene which includes a Michelin star for Loch Bay at Stein. Get the ferry over to Raasay to hike up Dun Caan, with its exceptional views of Skye, or for outdoor adventure sports such as coasteering, kayaking, climbing and abseiling.
The Small Isles include Eigg, which is looking to be the first self-sufficient island in the world through its investment in renewable energy, Muck, with its local crafts from wool and willow, the National Nature Reserve of Rum where sea eagle can be seen and National Trust owned Canna.
