There are few places in Scotland as spectacular as the Isle of Skye, with the jagged Cuillin Ridge, stunning lochs and diverse wildlife. The island is a great destination for walkers, and what better way to explore this mesmerising landscape than a guided tour. Skye Wilderness Safaris take small groups (4-6 people) on an organised trek to reveal some of Skye’s most dramatic landscapes and diverse wildlife. There is a high chance that you will see white-tailed and golden eagles or on the lower treks, seals, dolphins, basking sharks and whales. To help with logistics – transport is provided from the pick-up and drop-off points and if the weather takes a turn, experienced local guides will get you back to safety. The guided walking tours last around 8 hours and cost £95 per person.
There are a number of different treks available including exploring the Trotternish Ridge and for anyone interested in photography, this trip offers the perfect opportunity to see some very impressive and seldom seen viewpoints. The Loch Coruisk trek also takes in a boat trip, taking you across loch Scavaig to the landing jetty at Loch Coruisk. The weather will play a big part in any walk on the Isle of Skye, if it is particularly bad, they may move by 24 hours, especially if there are high winds or heavy rain. On a good day with blue skies – nothing can beat walking on Skye.
