Hostelling International Tripbook for

Isle of Skye

10 Entries

Enchanting castles, cosy pubs and untamed landscape awaits you at the Isle of Skye, Scotland. With hostels set in wild moors, dramatic mountain ranges, and harbour-side locations, you’ll have a great base to explore this intensely scenic island. Visit the stunning Fairy Pools – crystal clear and vivid blue, the pools are part of a stream which runs off the rocky Cuillin mountain range. The stream is punctuated by waterfalls and at some points is almost still – but don’t be fooled by their seemingly Mediterranean appearance as they’re very cold to take a dip in! Take a trip to see Dunvegan Castle which looks over Loch Dunvegan and explore the inside of the grand building as well as the gardens. Visit the open-air Colbost Croft Museum to see a perfectly preserved blackhouse – the type of house that was prevalent in the Isle of Skye before the tragic Highland Clearances during the 18th and 19th centuries.
