Isle of Skye

Wonder Type: Natural
Country: United Kingdom
Best of: Island
Skye, or the Isle of Skye, peninsulas radiate from a mountainous centre dominated by the Cuillins, the rocky slopes of which provide some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in the country. Although it has been suggested that the Gaelic Sgitheanach describes a winged shape there is no definitive agreement as to the name's origins.
