Blessed with picturesque lochs and a dramatic, rocky coastline, the far-flung Isle of Skye remains one of Scotland's most beloved destinations. First inhabited as long as 9,000 years ago, the island has a rich history of Irish, Norse, and Scottish domination. Isle of Skye tourist attractions include ancient castles, mysterious cave networks, and panoramic viewpoints. For many, the highlight of a trip to Isle of Skye is a chance to sample some locally distilled whisky and a home-cooked meal at a cozy pub.
