      Road trip 3 days (Stirling - Skye - Loch Lomond)

      Isle of Skye Mar 10, 2015 at 8:32 PM

      Hi - I wanted to find out more on the best way to see Isle of Skye - tried to find out more information online and I understand there is a couple of areas - Lolchalsh, Broadford, Potree etc. Which area is best to stay for the best view and experience? I am planning to drive.

      If I am staying at Isle of Lolchalsh, is it easy to drive across and how should I plan in such to maximise a full day in Skye? Can someone let me know / share links on hiking routes / sightseeing routes and suggest any activities to do in Skye?

      What is the best scenic spots for photos?

      Thank you

    • Uig ferry/coach connection

      Isle of Skye Mar 1, 2015 at 2:17 PM

      Freaking out over nothing, but how does the coach connection with the ferry work? I'm travelling from Glasgow to Uig, and the bus gets in 10 minutes before the ferry is due to depart. Do we get time to get our tickets and do we get driven up to the ferry so we can board?
      Being really stupid I know, but thanks!

      3 days tour self drive possible?

      Isle of Skye Mar 7, 2015 at 7:37 AM

      I am arriving by train to Edinburgh Waverly station and plan to do 1 day Edinburgh city sightseeing. I am exploring possibly of doing a 3 day self drive the next morning. Let me know if that is possible and how should I do it? I am thinking of driving up north from Edinburgh to see Stirling Castle, Eilean Donan Castle, sightseeing, then return rented car flying out from Inverness to CDG, Paris. Is there any other airport beside Inverness that fly to CDG?

      Suggestions welcomed. If you think driving is not possible, please let me know the best alternate transport. I did explore 3 day tours with tour company - but this is not guaranteed departure and the tours will not run if minimum number of people required are not met.

      Thank you! :)

      We are walking the West Highland Way ending in Fort William. Looking for transportation options to visit Isle of Skye and then go on to Inverness before flying to London then home to Canada I.e. Tour, bus or train - not really wanting to figure out driving on the other side of the road. Although there seem to be options to and from Skye, seems we need a vehicle for flexible exploration?

    • 3 nights in Skye VS 2 nights in Skye + 1 night in Inverness

      Isle of Skye Apr 11, 2014 at 1:48 PM

      My husband and I are arriving into Edinburgh on July 8th. We spend 2 nights there - and then rent a car and the plan is to drive to Skye on the 10th. We have 3 nights booked in Skye at the Rowan Cottage Tree House. We then have a flight out from Inverness to London on the 13th at 2PM.

      My question is do you think we should do 3 nights in Skye or should we spend the last night in Inverness since we have a flight out from there on the 13th afternoon.

      Also any suggestions on good routes from Edinburgh to Skye and any recommendations for what distilleries to visit perhaps on the way to Skye? My husband really enjoys Scotch where as I can be the designated driver.

      Thanks in advance for all your suggestions!
