Advert Travel Gazette

THE SCOTTISH island of Skye has been named one of the world’s destinations most affected by mass tourism.

The alert is due to thousands of extra visitors heading to locations like the Old Man of Storr, the Fairy Pools, the Quiraing mountain range and Neist Point.

The Hebridean Island has been cited alongside Barcelona, Amsterdam, Prague, Venice and Dubrovnik as an example of a much-loved destination being destroyed by vast volumes of visitors flooding in, Inews reports.

Skye  is the largest and northernmost of the major islands in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland
