The Isle of Skye

The Isle of Skye is the largest and most northerly island of the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. Dominated by the magnificent Cuillin hills, Skye is considered to have the most spectacular peaks in Scotland. The Isle of Skye is well known for its beautiful and spectacular scenery, culture and heritage, fishing, boating and wildlife - including the Golden Eagle, Red Deer and Salmon.  Skye is the perfect island holiday destination for couples, families, walkers and those seeking a peaceful holiday in the Western islands of Scotland

The Anchorage is located in the village of Kyleakin on the east coast of the island opposite the northwest Scottish mainland town of Kyle of Lochalsh.

Kyleakin is known as the gateway village to the Isle of Skye and the tolls on the bridge across to the Isle of Skye have now been lifted. This charming village arranged around a small harbour. Several working fishing boats and pleasure craft are moored in the marina.

The Viking Castle Moil is a prominent landmark (also pictured) and the views from the top are well worth the short walk around the cove.

Kyleakin has a small post office/general store, a cafe and a couple of unpretentious restaurants. More extensive facilities can be found over the bridge at Kyle of Lochalsh (five minutes away) and Broadford (ten minutes away) or Portree, Skye's capital (30 minutes away).
