Skye has close links with the Outer Hebrides with ferries leaving to the Western Isles from Uig.
It is also has some of the most stunning scenery in the West Highlands, with what seems like a castle at every turn .
And northern Skye has its fair share as well as ancient monuments, standing stones and cairns.
North Skye includes the town of Portree, which features in many a Scottish and Gaelic song, and is just a short hop from the Old Man of Storr and the island of Raasay.
The south of Skye and the Kyle of Lochalsh hove into sight as you descend the A87 from Invergarry and what could more iconic than Eilean Donan Castle coming into view on the shores of Loch Alsh.
The Skye Bridge has negated the need for a ferry ‘over the sea to Skye’ but the song still rings in your ears as you take the journey over from Kyle of Lochalsh to Kyleakin and on to Broadford, one of the main towns on Skye.
The south of Skye is home to the famous Cuillin hills and across the Cuillin Sound, the Small Isles are clearly visible with Rum the largest of them.
