where to stay near Skye / west coast?
Hi everyone and greetings from Toronto
My friend and I are planning a trip to Scotland (arriving June 9th).
We are flying to Edinburgh and will stay there for 5 days so we can explore the city, as well as take day excursions to the surrounding areas.
After that, we head to the west coast for another 5 days.
We really want to visit Skye and any other spots that are good as day trips.
My questions are:
1) How can we get from Edinburgh to near Skye? Is there a train or bus?
2) Where should we stay for those 5 days on the west coast so it's possible to see Skye and other destinations near to it?
