Accommodation on Skye FAQ's
What time of year should I visit the Isle of Skye?
In Skye, there is something epic to be said for every season.
There is a hustle and bustle in the summer months, our most popular site can get busy. The long days can be breathtaking, with daylight from 4am to 11pm. The weather though can never be accurately predicted for long, even in summer. However, even in rain, the drama of our island is there for all to see. We are after all known as the Misty Isle.
Autumn, brings with it unbelievable colours and light. These months are a little quieter for those looking for peace while driving around. There’s still plenty happening in Autumn and far fewer midges.
Winter brings stillness and calm. Woodburning fires, books and whisky bring relaxation in the evenings. The snow on the Cuillin, frozen lochs and tranquillity is perhaps the perfect end to a busy year and a perfect time to recharge and get ready for the next.
Spring brings bluebells on the hills and lambs to the moors. Again, spring offers a slightly quieter experience on the island. Perfect weather for walking and exploring as the island thaws back into life.
Where is the best place to stay on the Isle of Skye?
For those looking for complete isolation and unspoilt vista’s 95% of Skye is perfect. There are no bad angles on our island.
For those looking to be nearer facilities, shops and bars. Consider booking in one of the main villages, Portree, Broadford or Kyle.
Just make sure to have enough supplies with you to last until the next day. Isolated areas on the Island do not have access to shops nearby, and often our shops close earlier than in major cities.
It’s always best to plan and collect supplies on the way to your accommodation to avoid being caught out.
