review 23 Aug 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Wandering around and finding hikes to walk. The meals were amazing. We loved attending the local music brought in at the Festival on Skye (Feis en Eilean). That was where we were able to really get a feel for the island. I don't believe there were many tourists there.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Small bags, like 40 L backpacks work best. The trains and buses can be crowded. Also, the operator had amazing customer service.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

To some extent. I liked supporting the local wool merchants in Mull, but travel on the Isle of Skye takes a big toll on its citizens and infrastructure.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Lovely! We will book something similar again!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Traveling without a car made us travel with less, slow down, and engage more with people around us. So we had a wonderful time meeting people from Scotland and all over, which was great.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Recognize that you'll spend a bit more time getting between places than you otherwise might, so let go of the rush to "get there". And pack light.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We were in small hotels except for the extra nights we added in cities, and staying in small towns. So we definitely benefited those small business (including many pubs). And the hotels were all fantastic.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was a great vacation. We were very happy with it.
