We advise that you book and research your Skye trip as soon as possible. In the summer months accommodation in Skye can be fully booked, especially in the Portree area, some of the popular cottages will book out for the whole summer. So book fast to avoid any disappointment.

WHICH AREA IN SKYE SHOULD WE STAY?

If you don’t plan on having your own transport or a rental car then we would advise that you stay close to Portree. From here you will be able to take tours and public transport to any area on the Island. Portree has a great village feel and has everything you need on your doorstep, it’s known as the main hub of Skye. Another busy town is Broadford which has an amazing mountainous backdrop. If you are taking transport then it’s really personal preference. If you are looking for peace and quiet then you could look at areas such as Sleat, Elgol, Broadford, and Strathaird or Portnalong. The main towns in Skye are Portree, Broadford, and Dunvegan.

We believe Skye is great all year round, summer (May-August) is the busiest time to visit the Island and accommodation will be in demand. Every season has its advantages and disadvantages, you can check out our guide to weather in Scotland here.
