Isle of Skye – Scotland

Isle of Skye – Scotland

Isle of Skye Scotland United KingdomThe Isle of Skye in the north west part of Scotland was and is breath-taking. Chances are you have seen pictures of it burning up Pinterest. One of the most popular pins I have seen on Pinterest is of the fairy pools in Scotland. Well those are found on the Isle of Skye.
When we visited here we were living in Las Vegas and talk about polar opposites: hot brown desert versus luscious cool green landscapes. We went from no green, to one of the greenest places I have ever seen.
Even though it was August the temperatures were cool. It did get warm enough during the daytime to wear a short sleeve shirt on most days.
You can drive north from Portree around the top half of the island taking in all of the scenery. There are many educational signs along the way that explain the history that has gone on there and what you are looking at now.

Cuillin Hills Hotel

If you are wondering where to stay in the Isle of Skye consider Cuillin Hills Hotel.
The hotel is set up high with a view over looking the town. Our room was huge and beautiful, which made up for us being in the back building with out a view. It was a peaceful stay and breakfast was included.

Room Tip: If possible try to get a room facing the water.
