One of the largest and best known Scottish islands, Skye is
particularly famous for its mountain scenery. Many people come here
to climb or walk in the Cuillin and the Quiraing, which Càrn Bàn
looks directly on to. Quite an expanding population since the early
1990s, now there are over 9000 people living on the island.

Due to its popularity with tourists, you will find many craft shops
and cottage museums.

As for sports, you can visit the swimming pool in Portree, play golf
at Sconser and Skeabost or go pony trekking. Water sports available
on the island include diving, canoeing, windsurfing and yachting.
Skye is also the ideal place for fishing and bird watching.

But if it's whisky you want, why not visit the Talisker Distillery
at Carbost?
With amazing views of the Quaraing Mountains you are superbly based
to enjoy excellent walking, safe bathing, sea and loch fishing, bird
watching, (Golden Eagles, Buzzards and Sea Eagles) and everything
else this beautiful island has to offer.

There is lots to do in Staffin - the walks especially are breath
taking. The Columba 1400 Centre at the end of the road has a
restaurant and pool table. The Flodigarry Hotel has an excellent
restaurant and bar, and operates a mini-bus to take you home on a
Friday and Saturday night.
