Skye Backpackers

Situated on the West coast of mainland Scotland, Skye is the largest and best known of the Inner Hebridean Islands.
One of Europe’s most dramatic and haunting lands, words can do little justice in describing the awesome beauty of the Isle of Skye. The majestic Cuillin Mountains dominate the rugged landscape, which is peppered with lochs, glens and tiny fishing villages.
Skye Backpackers is located in the picturesque fishing village of Kyleakin and is surrounded by mountains and sea.

We are a fun & friendlly hostel who are always in need of helping hands to keep the place clean, tidy and welcoming for our guests. So what's the deal?

My time on Isle of Skye was great. The location is magical and it is a great place if you are looking for some time to relax and reset. I also made lots of amazing friends during my stay. Everyone is very lovely and I would recommend this place to volunteer.

My time at Skye Backpackers was pure magic!
The isle, with its other-worldly landscapes, grand waterfalls, enchanting castles and ruins, and mystical glens, is rich in history and legend; there will always be something to see!
Ruthie and Toni, the wonderful management, were always very helpful and kind, going out of their way so things ran smoothly, helping us with whatever we needed! They even took us on adventures around the area! I made precious memories with them that I’ll never forget, so lucky to have met them. I’ll miss you so much, and thank you for everything ❤️
Hugs,

It was an amazing experience where I could connect with the local people and nature. I had the opportunity to learn English and Spanish with the volunteers and staff. I developed new skills. I would definitely come back to visit the place again. The beauty of the place is surreal and I felt like it was a work of art. In addition to the location, the people help make the place fantastic. If you have the chance to visit the place, don't miss it. Thank you Ruthie and Toni for making this a delightful experience.
