The Isle of Skye is a walkers’ paradise. From family walks on the spectacular coastline to dramatic scrambles in the Cuillin mountains, the most challenging in Britain, the island provides fantastic walking for everyone.
Walk Highlands can help you find the best walking routes on Skye, from the classic outings to hidden gems not found in guidebooks. They have carefully researched each of the walks, giving up to date, reliable information to help you get the most from your visit to this beautiful island.

The golden eagle is a very large bird of prey with a wingspan of more than 2 metres. Almost all breeding golden eagles in Britain are in Scotland.
White-tailed sea eagles are found near large bodies of water and coastlines … and were re-introduced to Scotland in 1975 where they’ve since started to breed.
Sleek and often secretive, the otter is a mammal that you need luck and good judgement to see well. Much of the Scottish coast is excellent for otters.
Otters are largely solitary, semi-aquatic mammals that obtain most of their food from lochs, rivers or the sea.
Dolphins are well known for their curiosity and accompanying boats and swimmers. Very dramatic when they travel in large acrobatic pods.
There are two types of native deer in Scotland – red deer and roe deer.
The majestic red deer is our largest terrestrial mammal, and undoubtedly one of the most impressive wildlife spectacles of Scotland.
