Apartments on Skye

Experience a wonderful holiday on the "Island of Fog

On the island of Skye you can rent a vacation rental in the middle of a dramatic landscape at the western end of Scotland. If you would rather get to know the way of life and the people of the island better, it is best to book a holiday apartment in one of the towns and cities.

Location and orientation

The island where Scottish Gaelic is still spoken

Skye, also called Isle of Skye or in Gaelic "An t-Eilean Sgitheanach", which means "Island of Fog", lies in the Atlantic Ocean, directly off the west coast of the Scottish mainland. It is the largest island of the Inner Hebrides and is inhabited by just over 10,000 people, of whom about a third still speak Scottish Gaelic. The main towns on Skye are the capital Portree and the larger villages of Armadale with its ferry port, Broadford to the east and Dunvegan to the northwest.

Travelers and Activities

A paradise for alpinists

Climbing enthusiasts are often drawn to Skye to climb the Cuillin massif in the south of the island. This is a very rocky mountain group, which you can only climb if you have some mountaineering skills.

Explore beautiful landscapes on a hike

There are various possibilities for extended hikes, for example at Loch Coruisk, a lake that is best reached by boat from Elgol. There you will find a seven kilometre long circular hiking trail, which partly leads over stepping stones through rivers. Also very popular is the Skye Trail, a 127 kilometre route that runs from the north near Flodigarry to Broadford.

Skye has an impressive history dating back to the Ice Age, from far-reaching changes by missionary Kolumban to the Viking invasion. For this reason, the country is characterized by numerous different influences, which makes a stay something very special.

Top 3 travel tips

1. View prehistoric artifacts

On the island you will find several windowless towers, so-called Brochs, as well as remains of Cairns, which are artificially created hills with stone circles. These places bear witness to ancient rituals and are occupied with many myths. You can also admire hundreds of ice-age finds from the High Pasture Cave and from the cemeteries not far from Armadale on Skye.

2. Scotland's castles for knowledge-enhancing excursions

Not only on the mainland of Scotland, but also on the Isle of Skye you can visit magnificent castle complexes. One of them is the Dunvegan Castle in the village of the same name, which once belonged to the Klan Mac Leod. This is the longest privately inhabited castle in the whole of Scotland. Accordingly, the building ensemble is well preserved. Also worth seeing is the castle of the Mac Donald clan near Armadale.

3. Finest Scottish whiskey

Make sure you visit the Talisker Distillery in the village of Carbost. It is the only single malt distillery on the island that is among the best in the world. Admission to the distillery includes a guided tour, a tasting and even a voucher, which you can redeem in the adjacent shop.
