Isle of Skye
The Green Guide


77km long and 40km wide, Skye is the largest of the Inner Hebrides group and is famed for its high mountains, the Cuillin Hills. In Norse and Gaelic tales, it was known variously as the cloudy isle, misty isle or winged isle due to its seemingly enchanted changing climate. Although treeless and bare, the scenery is a fine combination of mountain and sea. Skye is a bastion of the Gaelic language. Since 1995, it has been linked to the mainland by a toll bridge.
