Traveling Scotland And The Beautiful Isle Of Skye

Recently my friend and I traveled to Scotland. We only decided a week earlier that we were going to go there. After we had decided to go to Scotland we quickly booked our flight. Once we arrived in Edinburgh, Scotland we started planning where we would go. We ended up with the plan to head up the west coat of Scotland, to go to Ilse of Skye.

So that’s what we did. After staying for a few more days in Edinburgh we went to Isle of Skye by car. It’s actually pretty easy to get to the Ilse of Skye because you can just drive over a bridge to get there. Or you can always use the ferry which I believe costs about 10 pounds.

Once you are in Ilse of Skye there is so much too see. Just driving through the landscape is great because it’s not too busy and most of the island is still somewhat untouched. Portree is the biggest town in Ilse of Skye which is still pretty small though. You have to go there it’s worth walking around and it’s also right at the coast.

The thing that we did on Isle of Skye was to go up to the north to Dunvegan castle. It’s a nice castle that is worth visiting. But what is exceptional is what lies to the north of Dunvegan castle. In the Lonely Planet we carried with us it was described as a coral beach.

The path to get there is strange and it takes about 20 minutes to get there from the Dunvegan castle. Once you are there it’s amazing though. The beach is beautiful and there are almost no tourists. If you plan on going to Ilse of Skye go there.

Scotland is a great country and you could miss out on a lot of opportunities if you don’t have the right kind of information. We have a website solely dedicated to tips for traveling Scotland. We would love if you go check it out! Also if you want to know more about that beach we will be more then glad to help you out.
