Isle of Skye itinerary

Jump to last reply

We plan to drive to Skye from Glasgow and spend 2 nights on SKye, but we will only have one full day. We will be staying at a B&B between Portree and Broadford. I am wondering if it would be reasonable to drive the Totternish Peninsula and drive to Elgol in one day? I would like to see both. We would like to make some stops (possible lunch at the Flodigarry Hotel or in Uig, short hike in the Quirang, etc.) but our primary goal is to see the countryside and views. We already know we do not have much time. We are not going to stop at museums and do shopping, we just want to see the landscape and have a few short (20-30 min) hikes to stretch our legs. These are the two areas that interest us the most. I know it is a matter of traveling preference, but is this itinerary doable and realistic?

Is it worth driving to Elgol just for the view? Ideally, we would love to take a short boat trip to the loch if possible, but I realize that may be impossible as this will be the first week of October and the boats may not be going very often, if at all.

Also, we will be doing this trip as a loop from Glasgow to Skye, back to Glasgow. We are thinking of driving across the bridge in one direction and taking the ferry in the other direction. We want to get good view near Glencoe, etc. I know that driving direction can make a big difference. Which direction is more scenic overall? Should we do the ferry on the way to Skye or on the way home? Thanks!
