Glasgow To Isle Of Skye Road Trip

Last month, I finally ticked off a bucket list dream and went on a road trip through the Scottish Highlands.

After a bit of a hectic summer, I was in need of fresh air and nature, and the highlands definitely did not disappoint. Granted, it was FREEZING, but so so beautiful.

I landed at Glasgow Airport at 9am to meet my pal Rachel, and we set off pretty much straight away. We aimed to get to the Isle of Skye that evening (we were booked in to The Cowshed Boutique Hostel) so our drive was about 6-7 hours.

We took the pretty standard route through Loch Lomond, Inveraray, Fort William, Glen Coe and Loch Oich stopping off several times for tea, snacks and photos.

Oh, and for a quick haul at the Whiskey shop…

Essential supplies, right?

If you’re ever planning on doing this trip yourself, make sure you don’t miss Glen Coe or Loch Oich. The views are seriously amazing.

After getting *slightly* lost, we arrived at The Cowshed at about 7pm.

Honestly, if you’re visiting Skye for at least a few days, this place is the best on the island, and I’m not just saying that. It’s clean, warm, comfy and bunks are only £22 per night – so it’s perfect if you’re on a budget.

I’m planning a separate post all about our stay here, so make sure you check back in a wee while…

…sorry.
