The Cuillin hills of Skye

The romantic misty isle of Skye, the Winged Isle, is well known for its scenery, mountains, history, castles, distilleries, legends and people. Spend a few days here because there is much to see and the scenery is fantastic. Take the road to Elgol and look across to the awesome circle of the Cuillin Mountains. If you have time take a boat trip from Elgol into Loch Coruisk where the Cuillins will surround you. In the north visit Dunvegan Castle or the jagged peaks of Storr.

After touring the island you can return to the mainland crossing the bridge to Kyle of Lochalsh, from where you can take the famous scenic train ride eastwards to Inverness. If heading north by car, you can drive through the pictureque village of Plockton, where Hamish Macbeth was filmed, into Wester Ross and the Northern Highlands. Alternatively head south via Eilean Donan Castle, Glen Shiel and Invergarry to Fort William.

Another route from Skye to Fort William is by the car ferry from Armadale to Mallaig. This is the Road To The Isles, the A830, which travels between Fort William and Mallaig, following the railway line. Once a day, the normal train is replaced by a steam train. Halfway along the Road To The Isles, at Glenfinnan, is the monument to the Jacobite followers of Bonnie Prince Charlie, who raised his standard at Glenfinnan in the 1745 uprising.

Fort William sits below the bulk of Ben Nevis, at 4,404 feet, Britain's highest mountain. There are a number of exhibitions and visitor centres in Fort William - Ocean Frontier and Treasures of the Earth (a geological exhibition) amongst them. Ocean Frontier, newly opened in summer 2003, features an indoor Atlantic Reef, the chance to go in an underwater submarine or to learn about deep-sea diving. The area is central for exploring the wild and remote regions of Morar, Moidart and Ardnamurchan, for climbing and hillwalking on the many mountains and, in winter, ski-ing on Nevis Range and at Glencoe. The cable car ride at Nevis Range is one of the easy ways to get to the mountain tops in winter or summer.

Further south along the shores of Loch Linnhe is the inlet of Loch Leven, now spanned by a bridge but years ago crossed by a ferry, to Ballachulish where the road divides. The A828 goes right, along the coast, and the A82 leads inland through Glencoe, site of the infamous massacre, and popular with walkers and climbers, before heading south-east over the wild and beautiful Rannoch Moor.
