SUNDAY’S SPECIAL SPOT – ISLE OF SKYE

Moody, majestic, jagged, remote, stunning – all these words play around my head when I think of Scotland’s Isle of Skye. Although I have never been (yet) I imagine its beauty is remarkable. Although I may think it remote, the opposite is true. Found in the Inner Hebrides of the Scottish Highlands it is in fact a grandly popular tourist destination. It’s uneven topography with moors, cliffs and lochs make it popular with hikers. Additionally it could be a dream for a photographer. Add some museums, ’round island boat trips, bed and breakfasts and warm people (town of Portree is the largest) and you have a memorable trip. Access to the island from the mainland is easy along the Skye Bridge. Ferry routes are an added option as well.
