This holiday aims to showcase the very best that Skye has to offer. Over the week we will experience the varied and diverse nature of the scenery while enjoying the best local food Skye has to offer.
We will explore the strange basalt pinnacles and ridges of Storr and the Quiraing, with sweeping views towards the Torridon mountains. The Cuillins have been drawing mountaineers for over a 100 years. We take the boat into Loch Scavaig which is arguably the classic way into the Cuillins offering some of the finest views in Scotland.
Scotland's dark history of the Highland Clearances is only too evident as we walk to the deserted villages of Boreraig and Suisnish which provide real contrast against the stark backdrop of the Cuillin.
Skye's coastline presents us with some of the most dramatic and rugged scenery in the country and no visit is complete without a walk to the sea stacks of Macloed's Maidens and Idrigill Point.
We conclude our week of wonderful walking by dining at the highly acclaimed Three Chimney's Restaurant to sample the finest of Scottish food.

Orkney is famed for its archaeological sites such as the Ring of Brodgar and Skara Brae. The islands offer wonderful walking along the dramatic coastline where we can view the incredible array of breeding seabirds
The "Long Island" as it is also known, provides a unique chance to climb the most distinctive hills of the Outer Hebrides. Here rocky hills rise from a land of shimmering lochans and turquoise seas flanked by the most beautiful beaches in the world
