The hillsides and moorland are starting to turn an amazing purple, there are so many different shades of purple heather, the bracken has turned bronze in colour, sunrises and sunsets are just amazing, all this as the Island is becoming quieter, I love this time of year.
The whole of Skye has seen a significant rise in visitors attracted to our Island, many who book early, others just turn up and hope for the best, unfortunately, a fair few of them had to sleep in their cars as Skye was completely booked out for most of the Summer. I think this probably has to do with the marketing from Visit Scotland and the amount of films that are being made on the Island now, most recently Transformers, don't think I'll be watching film! (A little on the old side...haha)
I would like to say a big "thank you" to all of you who have stayed at Hillside, it has been a pleasure to meet you and so nice to see return visitors
Bookings and enquiries are slowly trickling in for 2017, so if you would like to stay with us, please don't hesitate to get in touch 😀
