1You are really going to need to do some research checking prices, e.g. would it be cheaper to bus to Skype via ferry to Holyhead or possibly fly to Glasgow, then bus to Skye. You may well find it cheapest to fly to Glasgow then rent a car. For both bus and air you will save by booking well ahead. You could also take a train to Mallaig once in the UK, then Ferry to Skye and then local buses. Again a car would sure be nice. Were it me I would fly to Glasgow or Edinburgh and rent a car. You might check for flights in to Inverness as well. A lot of logisticts, but you will see some beautiful country.

2The cheapest way to travel isn't usually the most economical. The cheapest route would most likely be by bus from Dublin to Belfast, a combined bus and ferry ticket to Glasgow and another bus or two from there. But if you find a cheap flight to Glasgow the longer route would be a waste of time (although the ferry from Belfast to Stranraer is actually a quicker option than Dublin to Holyhead and travelling up through England.) . As the previous poster says, research on prices is needed.
