Skye and Lochalsh

Most visitors to Skye and Lochalsh will approach via historic Glen Shiel to the southeast or along the shores of Loch Carron to the north, both stunning journeys in their own right. But this region rewards the time-rich traveller willing to sacrifice speed for an immersive journey into a land where mountains meet the sea.

Slower approaches include the old drover’s route over the 350m high Mam Ratagan pass and its views to the Five Sisters of Kintail to glorious Glenelg and a short ferry trip to Skye. Alternatively, board a train in Inverness or Dingwall for one of the most scenic rail journeys in the world to Kyle of Lochalsh, alighting at picturesque Plockton or at Duirnish to walk the fine coastal path. Beyond Kyle, you travel over the bridge to Skye, and the scenic beauty only deepens.
