The Hebrides/Skye region

The Isle of Skye is one of the most famous and beautiful islands in the world. It is the biggest island of the Inner Hebrides and lies off the the north-west coast of Scotland. It is famed for it's dramatic mountain scenery, it's hundreds of miles of rugged coastline and it's Gaelic history.

There is so much to do here.....Highland scenery....Scottish wildlife..... sightseeing...... Gaelic Heritage...... and some of the best outdoor activities anywhere. You will be spoiled for choice. It is a magical place drawing visitors back year after year to escape from the pressures of our modern world.

Just a few names evoke what is embedded in Skye's famous culture and heritage.... the Cuillin Mountains, Bonnie Prince Charlie, Flora MacDonald... the list is endless.

Don't be fooled into thinking that Skye is a small island and you can see it all in a day - you can't! Stay for two weeks and you'll have just 'scratched the surface' of what there is to see and do.

Fabulous fresh seafood from crystal-clear waters, Malt Whisky from Talisker Distillery, fine ales from the isle of Skye brewery.... are the taste-buds tingling?

There are sea-plane rides, fast-rib sea expeditions, sea eagles, otters, whale watching, and just about everything possible to excite the bird watcher.

Skye delights for all kinds of holidays... quiet romantic escapes..... activity holidays..... family holidays. There is something here for everyone.

Every year during the first week in August the Skye Highland games draws competitors and watchers to enjoy a timeless spectacle of Highland fun and sport. .... pipe bands...... Highland dancing...... and all manner of field events.

There are many other festivals throughout the year embracing Skye's musical and Gaelic culture..... fiddle & accordion playing.... bagpipe competitions and of course, traditional ceilidhs.

Skye..... a world apart! Enjoy!

Uig, Isle of Skye

Princes Point Villa is situated on the north-eastern peninsula of the isle of Skye - called Trotternish. We are perhaps biased, but believe it to be the most beautiful part of the whole island..... it has everything!

The coastline is simply stunning from the broad sweep of sands at Staffin Bay to the dizzy heights of the famous cliffs at Kilt Rock. There is something to discover along almost every inch of the coastline and nearly all of it can be walked. The Rubha Hunish headland at Duntulm on the very northern tip of Skye is among the most beautiful and dramatic places in the whole of the british Isles. It's also a great place for whale watching!

The 'back-bone' of the peninsula is the Trotternish Ridge which runs from Portree to Duntulm in the north and can be walked for all of it's 20 miles. It is acclaimed as one of the best and most dramatic long walks in Britain. Along the Ridge is the famous rock pinnacle called the 'Old Man of Storr and then above Flodigarry, are the renowned pinnacles of the Quiraing Mountain.... featured in many movies including 'Highlander'.

So, the walking is just wonderful and almost unlimited..... dare we say......better than the Cuillins!

There is so much to do in Trotternish and so many ways to enjoy your Skye holiday. There are fascinating museums, famous Dinosaur finds and footprints, crofting community recreations, ruined castles, deserted mines and villages.... the list is endless and will keep you more than busy.

The two main villages are the ferry port of Uig and the crofting village of Staffin. Both are thriving little communities with pubs, restaurants, wee tea rooms and a warm Highland welcome! The award-winning ales of the Uig brewery are never far away.

You can hide away on deserted beaches, watch otters, eagles and dolphins.... take kayak or archery lessons at the Whitewave Outdoor Centre....or just relax in the wonderful peace and quiet that is this timeless and special part of our world.

If you are keen cyclists.... bring your bikes..... it's amazing! Do the circular loop around the 'north end' and over the mountain pass that crosses the ridge between Staffin and Uig.

Come hither..... relax...... and enjoy.

"Fabulous!"

We stayed at Princes Point Villa in June. The house was fantastic and situated with the most beautiful views and sunsets. The house is spacious and done to a high standard. It was very comfortable and well stocked. We couldn't get our daughter out of the garden - she had a great time playing.

Hi Karen, thank you so much for your excellent review of Princes Point Villa. We are delighted that you enjoyed the house and the fabulous sea views. Come and visit again.... soon! My very best wishes to you all. Andy: Andrew Butler, Skye Holiday Rentals.

"our holiday in a very special peaceful place"

On arrival after a quick phone call to Andy b he quickly made us feel at ease and at home,the welcome pack including the wine was a loverly surprise, just what we needed after a long drive from sttafordshire,shortly after Andy number 2 arrived with a very warm welcome and reassured us he was only a phone call away if needed.
The service we recieved was excellent,Princes villa is a stunning property ,really well equipped and maintained with every thing you might need in the kitchen.The villa is very clean has beautiful art work is very comfortable and homely.
The location is in beautiful suroundings with stunning veiws but is only 3 miles from Uig with regular ferries to the outer Hebrides,also Portree is only a 20 miuites to replenish food and drink also has other ammienities including restaurants and gift shops not forgetting a boat trip to see the sea eagle.
We loved the tranquility and stunning sunsets,the luxury of the villa with every little thing thought of,even down to spices,salt pepper e.t.c. the quality of the equipment in the kitchen is first class.
We are realy looking forward to our return visit.
