Aye lad, for sure hameldame ole Eilean a’Cheo” was the thickly accented and somewhat incomprehensible drawl of a reply uttered from a rather uncordial elderly local to what I assumed to be a fairly non-pugnacious question “So…, do you enjoy living all the way out here on Skye?”.

Getting there and exploring:

The best way to explore the Isle of Skye is by hiring a car a pottering about. It’s a bit of a haul to get there, however, from the main centres (approximately 5 hours from Glasgow and 6 from Edinburgh traversing the network of motorways) and during peak seasons (holidays and summer) the sheer volume of traffic on the roads may lengthen this considerably so allow yourself plenty of time.
