My best friend and I plan on visiting Skye around May 5-10th.. The exact dates are not set yet. I currently live in Dundee so we wanted to rent a car in Dundee, drive to Oban/Mull, then drive from Oban to Fort William, and then from Fort William to Skye.. Is that feasible? We will stop a few days in each area. I am wondering if maybe we should take the train instead from Fort William to Mallaig? But then I've read that in order to really explore Skye you need a car. Is that right? Also, how is the route? We both have been driving for several years, but never in the UK, never on the left side of the road. Do you think renting a car is our best option or should we take the train/buses/ etc?
Thanks for your help!!
