There is something incredible and soul-cleansing about the contrast between lush, towering peaks and the nearly uninhabited valleys in the Isle of Skye. The scenery alone left me short of breath. With all 'one-way' winding roads out to Skye, it is certainly harder to get to than most places, which makes the visit that much more rewarding.
The local fishing village of Portree, perched on a hillside overlooking the bay, is filled with amazing restaurants which all promote and use locally farmed produce. Some unique experiences in Skye include hiking the Old Man of Storr, or even fly fishing with a local gillie. Of course, after every long day, it's always fun to end up at a local pub for a refreshing beverage.
