Looking for a slow adventure on Skye? Highly recommended is a day or half day with Stewart Dawber of Skye High Wildlife. Stewart, a professional photographer and wildlife expert whose knowledge and patience is impressive.
Be realistic when making your plans, get it right and you won’t get stuck in a traffic jam. Avoid the “bucket list” locations that you have already heard about – we will tell you better and even more stunning places to visit. Many short stays on Skye end in frustration as guests realise just how much there is to do, see and experience.
What a way to start “a perfect day on Skye”. From the summit there are stunning views of the island of Raasay and the east coast of Skye, north and south. A four and a half mile hike taking around 2 – 3 hours…… enough time to work up an appetite.
A few weeks ago we hosted our first elopement ”on the croft” – a magical occasion- a perfect day on Skye in fact! You could argue that the couple were old enough to know better, but they represent a growing band that are opting for a simple, intimate event to make their vows to each other with a bit of a party a few weeks later.
For a perfect day on Skye it’s always worth mixing and matching and there’s always plenty to mix and match. A trip down to Elgol along a single track road is an experience in itself with plenty to see on the way. Be sure to book before you go, arriving on spec would be risky.
