Fairytale Destination the Isle of Skye Scotland

Fairytale Destination the Isle of Skye Scotland

I was truly enchanted by the Island of #Skye. From mythical walks, sparkling locks, and towering cliffs, the scenery is defiantly the main attraction. If the mist does arrive, there are enough castles, museums and cosy pubs to keep you warm on this #Scottish Island.


There is a place that I am completely spellbound by, the Isle of Skye in the awe-inspiring outer Highlands of Scotland.

There are so many magical places to explore. I can’t even begin to tell you how much research I have put into covering the topic of fairytale destinations . I am often asked, “What is your favorite fairytale place?” And every time I go completely blank. My mind becomes an electrical impulse pinball machine as I look back upon my research and wanderlust.

It’s one of those places that bring me back to a time when I was a princess skipping stones in a pond behind my childhood home. It’s funny how the smallest detail can be so concise in unearthing the oldest memories of ones youth. Perhaps this is why I am so passionate about fairytale travel, and why so many people are charmed by legend and lore. From this I will reason that my favorite fairytale place may not be yours, but the Isle of Skye is undoubtedly a perfect place to start searching.
