Skye, also known as the Isle of Skye, is the largest island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. It has a population of around 10,000 inhabitants which increases during summers due to the influx of tourists. It is also the second largest island in Scotland and is well known for its vibrant culture and heritage as well as abundant wildlife.
The region is typified by a mild climate with warm, wet summers and moderate winters, often without snow. The area receives high rainfall which alleviates the humidity. May and June are pleasant times to visit the place.
Historically, the area was settled by the Mesolithic tribe and has surpassed many famines which led to a decrease in the population in the 1900s. In recent times, the area has developed with tourism, agriculture and the arts and crafts industries.

Overall Guide : Apart from some exotic wildlife, visitors can look forward to the various stunning castles like Armadale, Dunscaith, Duntulm, Knock and more. Set in a large estate, the Clan Donald Centre, which is the ancestral home of the MacDonald family, is a... more popular attraction in the region. Several facilities like attractive gardens, hiking trails, a sprawling museum called the Museum of Isles are available to the visitors. When visiting the island, visitors should not miss the Misty Isle Boat Trips which offer exciting trips in the waters and a chance to watch dolphins, sharks and whales in action. Simply soaking up the sights is also an excellent way to rejuvenate oneself. The Isle of Skye Music Festival is a lively cultural festival featuring a blend of Scottish and international music. The festival promotes the cultural richness of the region through energetic performances from local as well as national music groups.

Overall Guide : I loved this island. It was one of my favorites when we traveled to Scotland. We traveled to Dunvegan Castle, ancestrial home of the McCloud's. We stayed in the town of Dunvegan. The hotel Dunvegan was a little pricy. It... more was clean and the staff was very friendly. It was a moderate walk to the Castle. The staff at the castle was very friendly. The gardens were beautifully maintained and the gift shop and restaurant were very nice. The food was a little pricy but menue was uniquely Scottish.
Not to be missed Dunvegan Castle , Portree High Street , Man of Stor

Overall Guide : Famous landscapes come together on Skye like no where else I've been. It helps being half Scotish and hearing about places while growing up, but even if there are places you don't know the names of, Skye is still dramatic... more in both landscape scenery and weather.
