Rain or shine, most likely both in the same day, Skye is a stun­ner, from the stark grandeur of the Black Cuillin, the jagged moun­tain range loom­ing over the is­land, to the cheer­fully pas­tel houses of Portree har­bor. You can take in the views by driv­ing Skye’s wind­ing roads, get out for a shore­line am­ble or, if you’ve got the skills, go moun­taineer­ing. Guides can be hired for more chal­leng­ing itin­er­ar­ies; a good op­tion is http://www.skyeguides.co.uk .

Rec­om­mended spots in­clude the Trot­ternish ridge, known for rock for­ma­tions like the Old Man of Storr and the Quiraing pin­na­cles. Also a must-see, the Fairy Pools, a se­ries of crys­tal clear and flow­ing pools on the River Brit­tle. http:// www.walkhigh­lands.co.uk/ skye/fairy­pools.shtml .
