Because I live on Skye, I don't have a lot of experience of the island's accommodation options. There are other websites, such as Tripadvisor, Airbnb and Visit Scotland where you can read reviews and opinions. All I have done here is to give some guidance on what to look for, based on my general knowledge of the options available on Skye. 

The Isle of Skye is hugely busy every summer. There are times when visitors end up sleeping on the floors of village halls because there are no beds available on the island. So do try to get your place to stay organised in good time!
