October on the Isle of Skye

The Autumn is one of the most rewarding times on Skye. Colour changes to the landscape present a beautiful tapestry of rich texture providing varied romantic views, often enhanced by the often snow capped mountains of the Highlands – visible from the warm and cosy inside of the Skye White House. There are also events throughout the month of October which can be found HERE.A pretty self-catering holiday cottage with a garden bench giving stunning view of the beach on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, Eine hübsche Ferienwohnung Ferienhaus mit einer Gartenbank geben einen atemberaubenden Blick auf den Strand auf der Isle of Skye, Schottland | Un gîte indépendant jolie avec un banc de jardin donnant une vue imprenable sur la plage, sur l'île de Skye, en Ecosse

Autumn on Skye

Autumn is one of the best seasons to visit the Isle of Skye and the Scottish Highlands. The change in colours (and the depth of colour) over the endless landscape along with a dusting of snow on the mountain tops provide a stunning backdrop to any visit.

Sleat also enjoys unusually mild weather in comparison to Inverness and the Highlands as a result of the jet stream.Image

They left a lovely comment in our guest book:

“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your picturesque, classic white Skye cottage. We hiked and explored the island and at the end of the day returned “home”.

Others have already extolled the virtues of many of Skye’s sites and activities. We’d like to add to the recommendations a visit to Tokavaig/Ord shoreline to watch the sun set, Breathtaking! We head home having created wonderful memories (and great photos) of our time on Skye.”
