Skye is around five hours drive from Edinburgh or Glasgow and you would want to spend at least one full day on the island. The first day we were there it was misty and we visited the fairy pools. The next day, as often happens in Scotland, the weather had changed and we had sunshine all day. We visited the Kilt Rock waterfall the next day on our way round the north of the island. The main attraction is Dunvegan Castle and they have boat trips to visit the seal colony there.
