Last week was the family break we needed. My husband has been wanting to go to Scotland for years but I have always been unsure and now I am left wondering why we haven’t been before!
Our break involved an idyllic cottage in a tiny village, miles away from anything else. Not everyone’s ideal destination but we were in need of some relaxation and peace.
Skye is ideal for anyone who wants to climb, walk and conquer but we were happy to potter and take in the scenery – it was perfect for us and the kids.
On and around Skye you will find…
hills to climb
hills to admire
palm trees in Plockton – home to Hamish Macbeth
And we quickly got used to the Scottish weather, which can go from rain to sun in 20 minutes
We arranged this trip before the midges hit and now I am desperately trying to work out when it will be safe to go back again! There’s still so much to see and explore as well as the chance to relax in beautiful surroundings.
Skye and the area around Lochalsh is ideal for any family. If you have a baby or a young child – a sling is going to essential so you can walk, potter and explore the hills and the beaches. There’s so much to see and do so you can plan day trips or do shorter activities and there’s no shortage of places to stay – from cottages and b&bs to campsites and wigwams.
