The Hebrides/Skye region

Welcome to Isle of Skye (Eilean a' Cheo) recently voted 4th best island in the world by National Geographic magazine and movie film location of "BLESSED" starring James Nesbitt.

Here the stark rise of the jagged Cuillin ridge drops to the gentle white of a soft sand beach. Inlets, bays and islands create a complex lacework pattern with the sea.

Tiny villages and historic keeps are familiar and fascinating. A place where time means nothing, and beneath every footstep lies 500 million years of history.

Discover the compelling past, the vibrant future and, through the essence of this remarkable land, capture memories to live with you forever. Unforgettable

Broadford, Isle of Skye

Broadford the second largest settlement on Skye is an ideal centre frrom which to tour all of the island and also Wester Ross. It has a number of excellent restaurants, a supermarket, 24 hour service station, numerous art galleries and craft shops. There is also a small hospital and a medical centre.

One thing you can be sure of-you'll be spoiled for choice if you're looking for an active holiday. If being right in the middle of the most glorious hillwalking and climbing scenery in Scotland isn't enough, visitors can enjoy a wide range of activities in and around the Broadford area.

Golfers will be delighted with the challenging and scenic Isle of Skye Golf Course, which welcomes golfers of all abilities (including children) and both gren fees and club and trolley hire are extremely reasonable.

Unsurpringly, the area is a paradise for anglers. Boat hire is available and a number of local boat operators offer fishing trips and charters. There is also some excellent fishing off the rocks. Some operators offer you trips in a glass bottomed boat--others offer seal, dolphin and whale watching trips, while the more adventurous can take part in a Sea-fari Adventure.

A must is the trip on the Bella Jane or Misty Isle to Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Cuillin Mountains. If you want to make a real day of it, Caledonia MacBrayne also run day trips to the Outer Isles. If you want to see Skye on horseback there are a number of riding centres, although those who prefer four wheels will find some of the most spectacular and finest driving roads imaginable. The more energetic may want to hire bikes-these are available locally.

Everyone knows of Skye's association with Flora MacDonald and Bonnie Price Charlie, but the island's history goes a little further back than that. There a numerous museums, heritage centres and sites of historical interest scattered throughout the island; Dunvegan Caste-seat of the Clan MacLeod, the folk museum at Kilmuir, the High Pasture cave at Torrin (bronze age) and the Aros Centre at Portree are just a few worth a visit.

Try your hand at kayaking , canoeing, absailing and archery. Whitewave at Kilmuir (and others) offer these activities to individual, families and groups.

As far as wildlife is concerned, Sklye has it all !! Seals, dolphins, porpoises, red deer, rabbits and a variety of of birds abound while the lucky visitor may spot an otter, a golden or a sea eagle. For those who are keen to see an otter there are varies hides locally.
