Visiting the Isle of Skye with a Motorhome

Visiting the Isle of Skye with a Motorhome

Why Skye? 

Skye offers some of the best scenery to be found on the Scottish islands.  The Drive to Skye itself with the motorhome provides you with time to relax with your party and enjoy some breath-taking views along the way. Skye is now easily accessible by bridge which was opened in 1995, plus you have the option of the ferry from Malllaig to Armadale and don’t worry about taking the motorhomes on board the ferry is a just a case of driving on and off again.   Skye is perhaps best known for its quaint fishing villages, castles and rugged landscapes.  As Skye is the 2nd biggest island in Scotland it has plenty to offer for any budding motorhomer wanting to visit.

What is there to do?

 Not Just an island Skye has so much to offer than just a drive around the coast. 

  • Are you brave enough for a dip in the fairy pools found at Glen Brittle? These have become very popular for wild swimming in recent times.

  • Visit Dunvegan castle and learn about some of the history Skye is steeped in.

  •  Take a walk up to the Old Man of Storr and enjoy the views of the Sound of Rassay and the mainland. This is a relatively easy walk for most at 4.5km and 288metres.  If walking is your go to then why not do the Quiraing which is the largest landslip in the country. It has to be seen to be truly appreciated although it is classed as a hard walk so be sure to check the weather.
