The Isle of Skye is the largest island in the inner Hebrides, located off the west coast of Scotland. This enchanting island is home to some of the most spectacular scenery in the UK. Dramatic landscapes from rugged coastline to jagged mountains, idyllic lochs, cascading waterfalls and ancient castles inspire even the most seasoned travellers.

With so much to see and do on the Isle of Skye, it has become a heralded destination for photographers, hikers and nature enthusiasts. You could spend weeks exploring all the wonders of this breathtaking island and still not see it all. However, if you're short on time, even two days on the Isle of Skye is enough to get a feel of this awe-inspiring island.

"One of our favourite Isle of Skye photography locations was the Old Man of Storr. We hiked it twice, but it's that first hike that is the most memorable for me. As we finished our steep ascent to the impressive rock formations, the most magical moment awaited us. We caught our breath, only for it to be taken away again in the most wonderful of ways. As the sun sunk slowly below the horizon it left behind a blaze of colour in the sky. The dramatic pinks and purples of the clouds were the perfect accessory for the already picturesque Storr."
