The Isles of Skye & Raasay
The Isle of Skye is one of the Inner Hebridean islands that lies off Scotland’s beautiful west coast. It is the largest of these islands and is now easily accessible by road as well as by ferry due to the toll-free Skye Bridge. Skye’s satellite island Raasay sits to its east and is a wildlife lover’s paradise due to the warming effect of the Gulf Stream. Pine martens, golden eagles, sea eagles, otters and dolphins have all been spotted here.

Two Beautiful Islands to Explore
Skye is an island of ageless romance and steeped in history; the famous Skye Boat Song tells of Bonnie Price Charlie's escape after the battle of Culloden when he was aided by one of Skye's most famous daughters, Flora MacDonald, who disguised him as her maid! Her house beside the Flodigarry Hotel can still be seen and her grave and imposing monument are in Kilmuir Churchyard.
It is the stunning scenery that brings most people to these islands. On clear days the outline of the mountains against the sky is quite breathtaking, but even the mists imbue the landscape with an unforgettable, haunting beauty.
On Raasay you feel as if you are stepping back to a gentler, more peaceful age, but it too has its history. The peace it enjoys today was dearly bought, with so many of its former inhabitants being ejected during the Clearances.
Nowadays, however, visitors can have the best of both worlds, the peace and escapism of Raasay, with the easy passage back to the Skye 'mainland' making it possible to enjoy all the activities and tourist attractions there as well. If you fancy a game of golf while you are there, for example, you can leave the car on Raasay and need only carry your clubs across on the ferry. The golf course at Sconser is right beside the ferry terminal on the other side!
