Winter Events on the Isle of Skye

by Afreka Thomson

Although winter is a quieter, more relaxed season on the island, there is still plenty to do and see, and a fair few happenings. The LAS centre in Portree and the Skye Bridge Studios have a fun mix of music, theatre and comedy taking place to keep the locals busy over the quiet season. Listings can be found on their websites. Later on in the season, the Magic Mountain festival takes place in February and is an amazing event bringing together adventurous souls in a weekend of talks, workshops, music, food and climbing.
