If you are looking for a place of solitude, where you can enjoy your own company in the great outdoors, surrounded by beautiful and dramatic scenery, look no further than the Isle of Skye.

Located off the west coast of Scotland, connected to the mainland by a bridge in the north and a ferry service in the south, the Isle is like nowhere else in Britain. Here, villages are few and far between, mountains dominate the majority of the interior of the island, and otherworldly rocky structures protrude from cliffs. At times, the only sounds that can be heard are the crashing of the waves against the rocks and the wailing of the wind.

Most roads are single track, indicating the low amount of residents and visitors. This is the perfect place to enjoy time spent in your own company; driving down the winding cliff-top roads, wandering through the lower peaks of the Cuillin mountain range, or relaxing on a remote and unspoilt beach.

Find yourself a contemporary cabin, such as The Black Shed, from which to base yourself for the duration of your stay. As you drive around the Isle, one peculiarity that you will notice is the abundance of modern architecture and pre-fab structures that dot the landscape. Far from appearing out of place, the new-builds are designed to complement their rural surroundings and designs tend to include large windows; providing reflections of the scenery for passers-by and panoramic views for the residents.

At night, after witnessing spectacular sunsets over the sea, the lack of light pollution allows you sit back and watch for shooting stars in the dark night sky (cloud cover permitting).

The clouds roll in fast and the weather is unpredictable, but the beauty of the landscapes and the opportunities for unwinding are unparalleled.
