The Northern Highlands and the Western Isles Travel Guide

Isle of Skye

The misty isle, Skye is full of romance and myth, lush gardens and steep, magnetic mountains (a compass is useless in the Cuillin Mountains). It ranks near the top of most visitors' must-see lists: the romance of Prince Charles Edward Stuart (1720–88), known as Bonnie Prince Charlie, combined with the Cuillin Mountains and their proximity to the mainland, all contribute to its popularity.
