Hiking

When should you hike a trail? Some hikes lead to fascinating forests, some have tremendous views and others are rich in variety. Share your favorite trails with other hikers and nature lovers.

Isle of Skye, also known as "Misty Isle", has only few really good days for climbing the higher mountains. The best time is usually from mid April to the end of May, but you can be lucky and experience a great day throughout the whole year. From my experience, it is better to start after noon, since evenings are usually more calm on Skye. Check the forecast before you go! Note that climbing Sgurr Alasdair requires mountain experience. People who suffer from vertigo should not try this. Note that Cuillin ridge can be very dangerous place for people who underestimate it. Weather can change very quickly and navigation is very hard on the ridge. Use proper clothes, shoes and equipment when going to the ridge and be ready for every eventuality.

It is better to start in the morning or before noon, since the walk can take more than six hours (depends on how fit you are). Always check forecast before you go!

Some say, the best time to visit Scotland is from mid April to the end of May, but you can experience good weather all year round.

Recommended throughout the year. We prefer May because many different flowers are in bloom especially along this trail and October with the autumn foliage. The second reason for April/May and Sept./Oct. it is the right temperature for the filled cupboard with wine along the trail. This is a highlight of the trail. It would be too hot in summer and in winter it is empty.

Recommended from April to October. We prefer May/June less crowded and hot and the autumn foliage. Important to know are the timetables for the guided tours to the slate mine and the reconstructed Celtic settlement. Attached is a picture with the time of the guided tours.

Usually from March to November. However, one highlight are the two Kneipp basins for water-treading. To enjoy these higher temperatures are recommended: May until September.
