Located off the northwest coast of Scotland, Skye is famous for its ethereal, stunning landscapes. The island stretches out for 50 miles and is formed of imposing peaks, mythical lochs, and impressive cliffs. It’s the perfect setting for hiking and offers many excellent trails.
You’ll find a number of hiking/scrambling trails within the Munros (the mountains of Skye). The Cuillen Ridge Traverse is a classic hike and involves some scrambling. An Ascent of the In Pinn is also an awesome choice if you’re looking to move from hiking into mountaineering and would like an adrenaline rush (it’s a pretty exposed route)! Besides the Munros Skye offers beautiful trails at every turn, so if you’re looking for a less steep hike, you’ll find that too.
Skye has mild summers with average temperatures at around 13°C and cold winters with averages around 4°C. The island tends to get a fair bit of rain with the wettest month being October.
