The local authority needs to do something about the crowding on the scenic circuit route round the northeast section of the island before it is too late. We went in bad weather in early June and every car park and lay-by was filled beyond capacity....More

Anyone wishing to complete a round of Munros has to tackle the 11 peaks on the Cuillin Ridge. You can get a nice view of the ridge from the main road, and even from Portree on a fine day, but for hillwalkers it is generally...More

Awesome scenery which we viewed from Glen Brittle. We had a day of good weather with equivalent views and then the following day torrential rain with the cloud base at a few hundred feet obscuring everything. Irrespective, the remoteness of these mountains and the relatively...More

Vast stark mountains with a unique feel. Very dramatic and unmissable if you are in Skye. Roads are twisty and steep but fine if you are careful.

This is one of the most beautiful sceneries. Great place for walks, scrambling or climbing .. The Isle of Skye is the place to be, unfortunately very busy during the summer months..but still beautiful!

You will no doubt pass this place anyway. It will take you 5 mins to jump out of the car, take a few snaps and then zoom off again. Hopefully you can avoid the large coach parties

Very good walking and climbing but also lovely views for those less energetic. Car parks/stopping points will get busy during peak periods.

Saw this amazing scenery driving all around Skye on a beautiful sunny day. What a beautiful country, well worth the minor hassles from the narrow and often one-track roads and tight squeezes. In summer very tough to find space in the car parks and viewing...More

There's many beautiful sights on Isle of Skye but The Black Cuillins is probably the one we liked the best. There's many places to pull over or park your car for a while and walk or take photos.
