Adventures In Isle of Skye – Scotland

If you are planning to take your family on a long vacation and you are looking for a new and unique place to create memories, then you may want to consider going to the Isle of Skye in Scotland. The Island of Skye is located off the west coast of the mainland, and is also the largest. It is known for its natural beauty and wildlife, especially its long history. If you are looking for a long adventurous mountain trekking with your family then the Cuillin Hills, the Red Hills and the Blaven are good places to start.

And if you will be going to Cuillin Hills then you might as well drop by and check the Fairy Pools which can be found there. The Fairy Pools is a series of crystal clear, cold pools and waterfalls surrounded by the breath-taking beauty of the rock formations carved by the falling waters. Some would advice to visit the pools after the rainy season so that the river will look more fresh than dry.

Wildlife in the island is also abundant. Birds from the miniature Goldcrest to the great Golden Eagle and mammals like the Pygmy Shrew and the Red Deer would surely pick your children’s interest. And if you are lucky, you and your family may even catch a glimpse of the playful otters on the shore. Accommodations should not be a problem. The mainland adjacent to it offers a lot of options to travelers whether it is for one night and breakfast or a long vacation in a croft house, cottage or even a caravan.

The experience that you and your family will get in the island will definitely be memorable. Who knows, you may even find yourself returning to the island soon and exploring the other aspects of the island.

    I hate to burst anyone’s bubble here but the photo is fake and has indeed been photoshopped, furthermore is not in Scotland but is in fact New Zealand, the rocks and the light shade of grey is not what you would expect to see in Scotland either, trust me – I’m Scottish & I live here! Don’t be disappointed, the Fairy Pools are indeed beautiful & worthy of a visit and far more more glorious than a faked pic.
