Isle of Skye Travel


 

Visit the Beautiful Isle of Skye in Scotland


The Isle of Skye, otherwise known as Skye, is a series of peninsulas extending from the central area in the island called the Cuillin Hills. The scenery is the main attraction in this area, but at night or during times when the misty clouds blanket the island, you can find a number of exciting places to explore. The weather in the area can be quite unpredictable depending on the season, so make sure to bring clothes that will be suitable for thick downpours or brightly lit sunny days.

The accommodations in Skye are very nice, and the tourism industry has seen a rush of growth so there are considerably more hotels and restaurants in the area. If you prefer to stay somewhere other than a hotel, you should consider one of the beautiful cottages in the Isle of Skye. Travel to this area will give you some insight into the culture of Scotland, and it is one of few locations where you will hear Gaelic spoken by almost 30% of the population. Most people in Scotland speak English, but on the Isle of Skye, Gaelic is very common. If you want to experience the language the heritage of Scotland, the Isle of Skye is the perfect locale to see beautiful landscapes and the warm, inviting atmosphere of old-world Scotland.
