The Isle of Skye is an enchanting place – with lots of history, scenic walks and unique geological areas. Boat trips to view the local wildlife, as well as hikes, allow you to appreciate the true beauty of the island. Here we list the 10 best sights to visit.
An Islet just off the coast of Skye, Mingay is a special area of conservation because it’s a breeding ground for the common seal. To the south, it looks out at Beinn Bhreac, a mountain on Skye, and to the south-east is Sgeir nam Biast, a rocky beach where seals can be seen. This is a great place to go for nature lovers and those who enjoy seeing animals in their natural habitat.
There are many fantastic boat trips available on the Isle of Skye catered to anything you might wish to view, from breath-taking scenery to wildlife such as whales, sea eagles or seals. Misty Isle Boat Trips is a favourite: the crew are friendly and love to share information on the history of the island and the beautiful wildlife. Bella Jane Boat Trips also offer excursions.
