Skye

Beschrijving

Largest and Northernmost of the Inner Hebrides. Wild landscapes. Of course, the island will be busy in tourist season, but on foot you will be able to avoid the crowds. There is no long distance trail on the island, but of course many shorter trails and also climbing opportunities in the Cuillins. Tour operators offer longer excursions over the island, calling these "Skye trail".

  • Skye Trail, Scotland

  • Hiking Experience Juli 2018
  • We managed the Skye Trail during eight days. The weather was brilliant and so the tour was incredibly enjoyable. Respect for those who go through this during a week of constant rain! Sky, water and mountains were equally present there in Scotland....
