Majestic properties to rent on the Isle of Skye

By Lucy May 30th January 2019
The jagged peaks and violent coastline of the Isle of Skye are now contrasted with the ultra-modern, ultra-minimal architecture which has emerged over the last decade on this remote, beautiful island. Don’t let rumours of dramatic wind and rain fool you. There’s rarely any need to really batten down the hatches. The gulf stream breeze and glorious summer heat is often followed by dark, beautiful winters. This moody celestial land calls to the nomad in all of us and we bow to its enchanting beckoning. In order for you to experience it, we have put together a list of the best escapes Skye has to offer.
