The Scottish islands are an idyllic destination for a self-catering holiday. The islands are all very different but what they do share is stunning scenery and friendly people who have time to talk and are keen to help make your holiday a happy one.
The Isle of Skye lies near to the west coast of Scotland, between Gairloch and Ardmamurchan. Gaelic is still spoken by some residents of this charming island of crofts and black houses. Renting a holiday cottage on Skye will give you the freedom to explore this fascinating island, and there are a good selection of cottages by the sea, self-catering houses and modernised black houses available to rent.
Skye has a lot to offer travellers and holiday makers looking for walking, climbing, kayaking and wind-surfing activities. You could also indulge yourself and the kids with a day of pony-trekking as you explore the beautiful landscape and enjoy the fresh air. There are ancient monuments to explore and in the right season opportunities to view seals and go whale and dolphin watching.
