Hostelling International Tripbook for

Isle of Skye

9 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.
