Highlights – Porteethe main town on Skye. Its name comes from the Gaelic Port-an-Righ,which translates as “King’s Port” and dates to a visit by King James V, plus a fleet of warships, in 1540, to persuade the island clans to support him. It had earlier been known as Kiltraglen. The centre of life in Portree is its harbor. This is in a superb natural setting, being surrounded by high ground and cliffs.

Highlights – Cuillin: a mountain range located near the center of the Isle of Skye. The true Cuillin is also known as the Black Cuillin to distinguish it from the Red Cuillin (na Beanntan Dearga, known locally as Red Hills). The space between these mountains is Glen Sligachan a large valley green and lush covered in heather. The glen viewed with the jagged ridges and peaks of the Cuillin is an amazing sight.

Highlights – MacLeod’s Tables: two impressive flat-topped mountains, Healabhal Beag and Healabhal Mor. They rise in gentle contrast to the jagged peaks of the Black Cuillin. The hike to the summit of Healabhal Beag is exhilarating and the views are breath-taking.
