The Skye Guide is an independent and personal view of the Isle of Skye. The things that are included in the guide are here because I like them - and because I think you might too. If something is not included, it may be because I would not recommend it to you, but it may be simply that I have not experienced it.
I am happy with that ambiguity...
Fairy Glen - Uig
Although categorised here under 'natural wonders', this place is actually supernatural. It is also not well known - there are no roadsigns to point the way. Luckily, it isn't too difficult to find, just a short way off the main A87 south of Uig.
Leave the main road at NG397633, just by the Uig Hotel, climbing the hill on the wee road signed to Sheadar and Balnaknock. The fairies live about a mile up here. You'll certainly know when you have reached their special place.
St. Columba's Isle
Just below the bridge where the main road between Portree and Dunvegan crosses the River Snizort, close to the Skeabost House Hotel, there is a well hidden and fascinating bit of Skye's history - St. Columba's Isle. There you will find ancient ruins and graves, stretching back over many centuries.
You can get close to it by car if you use the old road that runs just to the north of the current one. Take the turning to Tote at NG422485. Immediately after crossing the cattle grid, turn left and continue to the end of the road.
Trotternish - Sgurr a' Mhadaidh Ruaidh
This is a fine walk of around 11km to the best viewpoint on the Trotternish Ridge. Including two summits, and easy options of two more, it is an interesting and scenic walk, with little or nothing in the way of navigational challenge. The total climb involved is around 900m. Sgurr a’Mhadaidh Ruaidh (The Peak of the Red Fox) juts out east from the main line of the ridge, giving a clear view north towards Beinn Edra and the Quiraing, and south past Baca Ruadh to The Storr. At 593m, it offers commanding views to the Scottish mainland as well.
The Three Chimneys, Colbost
The Three Chimneys holds long list of other domestic and international recognition and awards, including 5 Gold Stars from VisitScotland, a coveted Gold EatScotland Award and a 5 Star AA rating. It has had countless superlative critiques in newspapers and magazines and restaurant guides around the globe. It truly is "Skye's world famous restaurant".
