Discover picturesque landscapes with cottages in the Isle of Skye.

The Isle of Skye, often known simply as Skye, is the largest island in the Inner Hebrides, off the coast of Scotland. It is characterised by acres of heather, small sandy beaches and sloping mountains known as the Cuillins. Skye has a fascinating history and was once a Norse Settlement. Many residents still use the Gaelic language and enjoy a more traditional way of life. The island is famed for fishing, forestry and agriculture and has been celebrated in many songs and poems. It has also been a filming location for a number of films, including Flash Gordon, Prometheus and Stardust.

HomeAway has a vast number of holiday cottages in the Isle of Skye, conveniently situated within easy access of the islands many amenities and attractions. From small cottages which are suitable for couples and families to much larger houses which welcome upwards of eight guests, there is a huge range on offer. Many properties have modern interiors with welcoming lounge rooms offering satellite television, DVD players and internet access, and fully equipped kitchens with modern appliances such as microwaves, laundry facilities and dishwashers. Children and pets are also welcome in many of the Isle of Skye cottages.

The Isle of Skye is famed for walking, its history and the diverse wildlife, making it an extremely appealing holiday destination. Back on the mainland, Scotland has a great deal to offer visitors. In the Outer Hebrides there are numerous cottages in the Isle of Lewis and Harris from which to enjoy a traditional pace of life as well as ample opportunity for angling. Meanwhile, there are a number of attractive and modern apartments in St Andrews from which the golfing capital of Scotland can be explored.

Things to do

Wildlife: Skye is famed for its diverse and unique wildlife and many of the holiday cottages in the Isle of Skye are located within the rural countryside itself. Whilst sea eagles, otters and red deer make their home on the island, the sea around the Isle is home to pods of dolphins, seals, Atlantic salmon and seabirds. Some fortunate visitors have even encountered minke whales, basking sharks and sperm whales.

Local history: Skye has a fascinating and rich history and there remain many artefacts and ruins of the Norse and Clan ownership of the island. Fossilised footprints also support evidence that the Isle was once home to dinosaurs. In addition there are the ruined castles of Clan MacDonald and Clan Macleod, the Brochs (the name given to Pictish towers) and many historic churches and buildings to appreciate.

The Great Outdoors: There is much to see in and around the Isle and it is widely agreed that the best way to see Skye is on foot. Flat and gentle walks are common whilst there are also pathways leading up to the Cuillin Mountains where the highest, Sgurr Alasdair, stands at 3,255 feet. In addition, there are a number of organised activities such as cycling, pony trekking and adrenaline sports to partake in.

Stargazing: The skies of Scotland are famed for being darker than most and Skye is no exception. This gives a huge advantage to any would-be stargazers. Whilst the Aurora Borealis is visible from some vantage points, depending on the time of year, the night sky fascinates whatever the season.

Weather

Skye enjoys a mild climate influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf Stream. Temperatures in the winter may drop to an average of 6.5°C and rise to an average of 15°C in the summer months. Rainfall is far higher than the mainland with an average of 200mm falling per month. High winds are also common.

Travel

Travel to Skye used to be only possible by ferry but since the introduction of the Skye Bridge in 1995, the island has become far more accessible. Driving from the mainland is relatively easy and the bridge is now officially classed as a continuation of the A87, which is the main road through Scotland passing through the likes of Loch Lomond. Car usage is highly recommended throughout the island as many areas are quite remote. That being said, the bus service on the island is reliable, if infrequent, and journeys from Isle of Skye self catering holiday homes to the many attractions are easily found.

5 of 5
My husband and I were really pleased with the cottage - it was very clean, with lots of wee niceties. There was also also 2 bottles of Skye beer and shortbread on our arrival. The views were stunning. We had lovely weather which allowed me to do some photography, which I've just taken up. Would definitely go back. Mrs A McLaren
