20 Most Beautiful Islands in the World

Isle Of Skye, Scotland

Isle Of Skye, Scotland

Rugged and remarkable, Skye is a spectacular sight, connected to Scotland’s northwest coast by bridge, yet remote, wild and unfathomably beautiful.

With its craggy coastline and its mountainous interior, the island beckons walkers and climbers keen to tackle the Cuillin Range and Trotternosh Ridge, whilst those seeking adventures a little less extreme head here to spot the island’s abundant wildlife, with majestic sea eagles, whales and dolphins amongst the species that call Skye home.

Visit medieval castles and quaint fishing villages before heading to Portree, the quiet capital, for a relaxing pint in a harbourside pub. Some 50 miles long, Skye is the largest of the Inner Hebrides and with so much to see and do, it’s the ideal place for those keen to get away from it all. Picturesque and perfect, this is Scotland at its breathtaking best and we can’t recommend a visit enough.
