Whether you’ve been fortunate enough to immerse yourself in its earthiness first hand or can simply visualize the muddy green, grey, purple, blue and ochre hues from the many paintings, photographs and films that pay homage to these lands, most would agree that the Scottish Highlands are an iconic landscape. Gloriously dramatic mountain crests, like the backs of sleeping dragons, give way to the folds of ancient, untouched, rugged terrain that protect years of history.
This kind of majestic nature has always empowered man by clearing the mind and inspiring the soul. And one of Scotland’s most awe-inspiring destinations is the Isle of Skye. We’re talking otherworldly type of inspiration, with heather-clad peaks housing fresh water burns, deep, teal-colored lochs, abundant wildlife and white sandy beaches; Skye is a little bit of magic.
Tucked away from the more beaten tourist tracks on mainland Scotland, Skye offers a seamless blend of solitude, peace and adventure; a little kingdom with many ways to be explored. From hiking, biking, seaplane or boat, you will find yourself at the heart of a paradisiacal wilderness. Tune into the call of eagles; look out to the North Sea lodgings of seals, dolphins and whales.
This is Scotland in all its tranquil glory. The island lulls you with its peaceful wave soundtrack, inviting reflection and meditation. As you cross Skye Bridge to get to the island, you already feel like you’re crossing into a new world. Nature is waiting for you to discover the secrets of its ancient wisdom.
