The Isle of Skye is Scotland's largest island, and justly famous on the tourist circuit. However, most visitors stick to the beaten track, and if you've a longing for solitude it won't take you long to find your own corner of this little paradise.
When the sun's out, there's nowhere quite as enchanting as Skye, with its vivid blue lochs and seas glittering in the light and its green crags glowing. However, if it's raining (and the weather can turn in an instant here, so definitely be prepared to get wet), there's still an eerie beauty to the place. And hey, what better excuse than to enjoy it through the window of a cosy pub?
The main routes to Skye commence in Glasgow, Inverness and Fort William, all of which are easily reached from Edinburgh by bus or train. The island is connected to the mainland by a bridge, so from these centers you can drive or take a bus over to the island. There's also a ferry if you want to travel, like Bonnie Prince Charlie, 'over the seas to Skye'.
