I've never been but my husband has been to the Isle of Skye. He wouldn't stop talking about how incredible it was. I had decided to spend a couple nights in Edinburgh but regret it now. One of these days we will make it back over. Happy travels to your parents. I'd love to see photos if it's possible.

Trotternish is a really nice area of Skye, in the North East of the island.
A school friend had a summer home on Skye, his mother came from the island, and I spent many a happy holiday there. As an adult, I've been on a couple of cookery courses at Lady Claire MacDonald's place and can also highly recommend The Three Chimneys!

I'm a little more than jealous that I can't go too. Hmm...maybe if I through the educational angle to my parents they make take the entire family! I could just see all 12 of us at the airport!

Skye, can be a 'dour' place in winter - when are your parents intending to travel?

I did a quick google and found www.trotternish.co.uk

Thanks Ishbel! They haven't decided yet because they aren't sure what the weather is like in which months. I'll pass that site on to them also!

The weather is normally 'improving' by May, the midgies are not so prevalent as they don't start biting until about June.... July and August the island is full to the gunnels with tourists, so pre-booking is a real must!

If they need any further information, ask.... can't say I'll know all the answers, but I'd probably know someone who would!
