Destination guide

Explore the Isle of Skye in holiday lettings

It's said that the Isle of Skye was forged by giants. In a place where shark-fin peaks rise from roaring oceans and valleys of emerald-green grasses hide lochs and standing stones, it's hardly a surprise that Gaelic myths linger on. These days, clutches of humble whitewashed cottages and cosy Isle of Skye holiday rentals huddle beneath the rugged rises of the Cuillin Hills and other sculpted peaks – the remains of long-gone titans, some say. Adventures outdoors are obviously top of the bill, but a medley of charming villages, local museums and haunting castles are also on the menu.

Things to do

Attractions near Isle of Skye holiday lettings

When fog and rain close the hiking trails – and they often do – you can snuggle up in your Isle of Skye holiday rentals with a fire, hit a local pub for haggis and a wee dram of whisky or head out for a taste of clan heritage. The latter can be found at Armadale Castle, the home of Clan Donald. A nifty museum exhibit there helps to chronicle the history of Skye's people from their earliest days, through Jacobite risings and Gaelic encounters. Alternatively, there's Dunvegan Castle, with heirlooms of the MacLeod Clan in a romantic setting on a crag atop the sea.


Things to do near Isle of Skye holiday homes

A packing list for the Isle of Skye is usually a medley of walking sticks, waterproofs and hardy boots . Why? Well, because this is only one of the most celebrated hiking destinations in the whole of the United Kingdom. From the serene valley of Loch Coruisk to the grassy rock slopes of mighty Quiraing, the salt-washed spires of MacLeod's Maidens to the breathtaking stacks of The Storr, there are countless wonders to discover on the trails. Biking, boating, kayaking and horse riding are other great ways to get out and about.


Climate during your stay in Isle of Skye holiday homes

One thing's for sure – the Isle of Skye certainly isn't known for its calm weather. Ravaging storms and thick fogs, icy temperatures and wild waves can batter this edge of Scotland pretty much any time of the year. The summer – from June to August – remains the most reliable time to book Isle of Skye holiday rentals for hiking, while spring, in May, and autumn, in September, can be good alternatives, with fewer folk on the trails. Winter, from November to March, is cold and wet and occasionally downright tempestuous.

Natural features

Be amazed by nature in the Isle of Skye

The Isle of Skye is a place rarely forgotten. From the Trotternish Peninsula in the north to the rolling heaths of Sleat in the south, it's packed with things that can cue a jaw drop. Take the jagged peaks of the Old Man of Storr, a rock formation that inspires myths aplenty. Take the stacked towers and carpet meadows of Quirang. Take the spiked Cuillins, carved by waterfalls and grikes and gorges and lochs. The coast is another amazement, sometimes sloping to the sea, sometimes dropping straight to pebble coves peppered with seals and ringed by minke whales.
