I know one day isn't enough for Skye, but I am bringing an American family to the island, and that is all the time we have. We're staying in Sleat (on the South coast) for two nights, so have one full day. The family have suggested that they'd like to see Dunvegan Castle, the Trotternish Peninsula, and do some walking. Bearing in mind that it will be mid-August, does this sound like a reasonable day trip to absorb some of the beauty and atmosphere of the island without being too frustrated by traffic, etc? Are there any epic places to visit that might be a little more off the beaten track? I'm always happy to take a side road that leads to a hidden gem!
Many thanks for any help.
