Mull & Skye are both beautiful but Skye especially is hoaching busy in the summer and both are quite a trek to get to.

My recommendation would be to find a nice B&B on the outskirts of FortWilliam, the town itself isn’t most wonderful but it’s at the foot of Ben Nevis and from there you can take the Steam Train (Harry Potter) over the famous Viaduct at Glenfinnan (I got married there

) to Maillaig – where you can hop on the Ferry to Skye for a day trip. It’s also a good base to travel to see other parts of the Highlands inc the Silver Sands at Morar, down Glen Coe and up to Aviemore where you can go on the Cairngorm Mountain Funicular Railway and do various other things. You will really see the heart of the Highlands and the iconic scenery everyone expects in these areas.
