We will be in Kyle of Lochalsh for a wedding next week and then driving to Glasgow.  We have 2 days and 2 nights to explore.  What should we see and which hotels to stay in?  Appreciate your help.  Thank you.

    It depends what your interests are and how much you want to pack in!  You can take a boat trip and also walk over the Skye bridge to Kyleakin, further on to Skye is Broadford which has a fabulous jewellery shop and Skye candles (some divine scented candles).  Driving past there will take you to the fabulous views at sligachan.

    Back to Kyle and after visiting their shops and maybe having fish and chips, a few miles away is a lovely woodland/garden walk at Balmacara which is a short drive.  I have a real soft spot for Dornie which isn't far and has the gorgeous Eilean  Donan castle.  There are so many beautiful walks and view points in the area, you will have a fabulous time whatever you decide to do - whether it's sightseeing in the car or going out for walks.  We used this guide when we were there

    We have only stayed in self catering places in Dornie and on Skye (we haven't stayed in the Kyle) so I don't know much about the hotels, but can recommend both pubs that are in Dornie if you do go there for great food!
