The Isle of Skye is close to the North West coast of the Scottish Highlands, and is the largest and the furthest north of the Inner Hebrides islands. Skye is about 80km (50 miles) from north to south and approximately 40km (25 miles) across at its widest point. This is not really an island you visit for the beaches but the coast is made up of spectacular scenery with bays, cliffs, rock stacks and caves making this a great and varied coastal landscape. Then add the mountains like The Old Man of Storr and it becomes a must visit for those that like nature and walking.
Why not check beaches nearby as we have 30 beaches in Inner Hebrides. You can even take a look at our list of Inner Hebrides dog friendly beaches or even our United Kingdom Blue Flag beach list.
