Our Island

The Isle of Skye

The Isle of Skye is the largest and most northerly island in the Inner Hebrides. It is also the most stunningly beautiful with it’s many peninsulas radiating out from its volcanic heart, the Cuillin mountain range.

The island is connected to the mainland by a picturesque, toll free road bridge although you can still get there the traditional way, by taking a ferry from either Mallaig or Glenelg, ”over the sea to Skye”. Skye is 50 miles north to south and around 25 miles at it’s widest with a coastline of some 400 miles made up of huge cliffs, caves, sea stacks and arches that surrounds some of the most exceptional, dramatic and magical scenery to be found anywhere. The main industries on the Island are tourism, agriculture, fishing and whisky distilling.

The locally produced Talisker malt whisky is the dram of choice for many of the world’s connoisseurs! The Isle of Skye has been the inspiration for many novels. In more modern times, it has been the backdrop for several movies, most recently, Prometheus, 47 Ronin, MacBeth and Outlaw King. The Island’s outstanding beauty has always inspired the arts and for centuries, Skye has been celebrated in verse and song.
