The Isle of Skye is the second-largest Island in Scotland after Lewis and Harris. With some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in the UK. We will take you to see some of the best locations on the Island. The Island has been occupied since the Mesolithic period (7th millennium BC) and its history includes a time of Norse rule and a long period of domination by Clan MacLeod and Clan Donald. Marshal who will guide you around the Island is a native Macdonald, with ancestry going way back to viking times. Join us and we will show you the most beautiful parts of the Island.
The 18th-century Jacobite risings led to the breaking up of the clan system and subsequent ‘Clearances’ that replaced entire communities with sheep farms, some of which also involved forced emigrations to distant lands. Resident numbers declined from over 20,000 in the early 19th century to just under 9,000 by the closing decade of the 20th century. The ancient gaelic language is still spoken in some parts of the Island. The main industries are tourism, agriculture, fishing and whisky-distilling. The climate is mild, wet and windy. The abundant wildlife includes the golden eagle, sea eagle and red deer. We look forward to you joining us on our bus tour of Skye.
