Skye's forests are set in a stirring landscape of jagged mountains, deeply indented sea lochs and gentle coastal fringes. They have trails for all energy levels, fabulous views and some of the island's best places to see wildlife.
And what amazing wildlife it is! Top of any list is a visit to the otter hide in Kylerhea, but keep your eyes on the skies in Glen Brittle forest - sea and golden eagles are known to visit here - and look out for rare coastal birds and seabirds near Broadford.
