Isle of Skye & Kyle of Lochalsh

Who hasn't heard of the Isle of Skye just off the coast of Scotland's western seaboard. It the largest and most northerly of the Inner Hebrides. Skye is an island of many wonders. It is blessed with 2 mountainous regions: The Cuillins and the Quiraing. The coastal fringes are rough and quite spectacular and if castles are your thing ...there are a few. Walking? The Skye Trail.

Kyle of Lochalsh, the land of castles, hills and lochs, is the gateway to Skye and the wonderful north west coast. From Kyle the Skye Bridge traverses the Inner Sound to Kyleakin.
