ragamuffin loves...The Isle of Skye

Ragamuffin has been on the Isle of Skye since the late 70's but we would like to think that we haven't taken this wonderful island for granted.  It's dramatic landscapes and constant change of light make the scenery appear different every time you look.

So once you've explored ragamuffin here are our top five scenic destinations to explore.

1. Kilt Rock - A 200ft cliff made of massive columns of dolerite which have been said to look like pleats on a kilt.  Kilt Rock is a popular viewpoint; looking to the west, the visitor can also enjoy views across the Sound of the Isle of Rona and of Wester Ross.

2. Loch Coruisk - A beautiful loch at the heart of the cullin. It is possible to walk but it is long so why not enjoy a boat trip out there. Boat trips available from Elgol by the Bella Jane or the Misty Isle.

3. The Fairy Glen - The Fairy Glen resembles a miniture landscape and has an otherwordly atmosphere. Just the place to enjoy some tranquility.

4.The Old Man of Storr - The area in front of the cliffs of the Storr is known as the Sanctuary. This has a number of weirdly shaped rock pinnacles, the remnants of ancient landslips. One of the most famous of these is known as the Old Man of Storr.

5. Neist Point - The most westerly point on skye, the point is regarded as the best place to see, dolphins, whales, porpoises and basking sharks, it is also one of the best places to enjoy a magnificiant sunset.
