The Hebrides/Skye region
The North West Highlands of Scotland holds some of the world's best scenery as well as hundreds of plant and animal species.
It also has a unique culture and although eveyone here now speaks English, the local language is the Gaelic (pronounced. Gaalik)
It is easy to understand why this area attracts visitors from all over the world. Dunvegan castle is the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland and is home of the Clan Chief Macleod.
A visit to the castle and its gardens is a must. Its spectacular fireworks display is fast becoming the place to be on Guy Fawkes Night. Dunvegan has a variety of shops and restaurants and you can take seal boat trips, visit the Coral Beaches and enjoy all the visitors' attractions this area has to offer.
Anyone interested in coastal scenery and marine wildlife including whales, porpoises and sea birds will enjoy Kildonan and Waternish.
The visitor can enjoy boat trips, guided walks, craft shops and excellent restaurants. The oldest Inn on Skye is situated in the eighteenth century township of Stein and is well worth a visit.

"Relaxing comfortable cottage in a lovely location"
We stayed at this cottage after Christmas and over the new year. The dogs loved it as the garden is secure and dog proof, meaning we could relax and not worry about them running around. The views are stunning, and the cottage was so cosy we didn't want to leave. There were print outs of walks which we were able to use, and lots of books and dvd's to watch. The kitchen is well equipped and we loved the little touches, like the toiletries left in the bedrooms, and the lovely bottle of wine. The cottage is also easy to find, which is great when you have driven for 12 hours and arrive in the middle of the night! Thanks for a great holiday!
