When many people say Scotland, they think of a man with a kilt and bagpipes, another a region full of castles and other natural gems located on the Isle of Skye. Skye can be divided into the Northern hilly and cliffy part and the Southern mountainous part, which is nicknamed the Scottish Alps. The Isle of Skye is one of the main destinations for all tourists. It is necessary, but to arm the nerves. The roads on Skye are for one car only and are often in desolate condition and travel takes a long time. So it's good to get up.

Sligachan is a place that divides the island into two parts. Just choose whether to steep mountains or hilly terrain.

Kilt Rock with Mealt Waterfall

This is a place that is iconic for the island. Kilt Rock got this place, because of the rocks, which resemble a Scottish kilt and a waterfall that ends in the sea

The Quiraing

There are many ways to get to Quiraing. You can make a circuit on foot or comfortably by car, but again you need to get here as soon as possible. The parking lot is then full.

Fairy Pools

Pools also nicknamed are located in the southern part of the Isle of Skye. Again, this is a cascade of waterfalls in the Allt Coir and Mhadaidh valleys in the Cullin Hills. Even though we trod it thoroughly here, we did not come across the classic view that is so well known

Leaving Skye

Looking behind the Cullin Hills and saying goodbye to the Isle of Skye. There is still much to see, but not everything is time-consuming.
