Sunny days, rainy days, days to explore, adventure or sit by the fire – Skye is what you make it.
Skye is home to some great artists, craft makers, food producers and musicians and is also awash with history from dinosaur footprints at Staffin to the viking canal near Glenbrittle and the iron age brochs nears Borve.
Visit the wonderful Dunvegan Castle and gardens, have a wee dram at the Talisker Distillery or sample local delicacies at a producer’s food market at Clan Donald.

Food and drink
We think Broadford is the best place to be on Skye because Portree, the Cuillin, Carbost, Elgol, the Sleat Peninsula and Plockton are all within easy travelling distance and they all, along with Broadford itself, boast some wonderful restaurants, cafes and hostelries. Scottish cuisine has changed dramatically in recent years and you can choose from a range of excellent eateries from Michelin star, AA Rosette, traditional and contemporary Scottish, stunning seafood, Spanish, Indian and more. You can sample local real ales in any number of pubs and many have whisky shelves which could keep connoisseurs occupied for years. There are quirky cafes, funky tea rooms or for a more elegant experience wonderful old hunting lodge hotels for a dainty afternoon tea.
There are a number of local taxi firms who can fetch you after a good night out.
