About Us

Skye Survey comprises a small and diverse team of geospatial professionals, based in the Isle of Skye and operating throughout Scotland and beyond. We have been providing a professional and friendly service to all of our clients since 2015, on projects throughout the Highlands & Islands, and all the way down to the south cost of Southern England.

Over the years we have developed a reputation for providing competitively-priced and high-accuracy aerial, topographical and measured building surveys, to the full range of public and private sectors: energy, highway, railway, marine, residential, general construction and importantly to us: our private individual clients.


We continually embrace the latest technology, including the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for the collection of survey data and for asset inspections, on projects where the use of conventional survey methods would be too unsafe or too costly. This has enabled us to remain at the forefront of our profession, reducing the time on-site, and therefore cutting costs to our clients.

We aim to be as transparent as possible from the outset in our commercial approach. To this end, we always provide quotations that are ‘fixed-cost’, not ‘estimates’, so that our clients can enjoy piece of mind that no further charges will be applied. Alongside the high-accuracy of our products and services, this is our personal and commercial guarantee.

Recent Projects

River Lochy

An example of one of our projects for a private individual client, we recently utilised our drone fleet to deliver topographical survey and section drawings from a thickly-wooded site. Our drawings will be used for flood risk identification and development purposes.

Glen Ullinish II

We have been surveying a vast site (2700 Hectares) on the rugged northwest coast of Skye, using a combination of aerial (LiDAR) and ground-based methods: a proposed wind farm development. Our data will be used for cultural heritage identification by external teams, in addition to in-house mapping and modelling purposes by the client.

Portree & Bracadale Free Church

We are assisting a local contractor in Portree, setting out the foundations, gridlines and site external works on a construction of a new community building.

A local, family-run company, embracing the capability of progressive technology and passing on cost-savings to our clients.

Recent Testimonials

“Skye Survey have carried out several setting out jobs for us over the last few years, all completed to a very high standard and accuracy. For me as an owner of a construction company, they are quick, efficient and fast to respond, and take the work off my hands. They have also provided design work for tricky and sloping sites. I couldn’t recommend Skye Survey highly enough.”

” We would highly recommend Tom from Skye Survey who worked alongside ourselves and project consultants to produce measured survey drawings and topographical surveys.  Tom was friendly, flexible and able to work within a tight timeframe to meet our project deadline. It’s fantastic to have this service available on the island”. 

Fiona Thomson
Development Officer
Portree & Braes Community Trust



Skye Survey recently provided a topographical survey related to a request for a flood risk analysis for our property. They used cutting edge technology – drone based LiDAR. Their communication was excellent throughout the process, they undertook the survey almost immediately, and the results were provided promptly. I would not hesitate to recommend Skye Survey to others. Fantastic service, excellent customer care.”

“Skye Survey are great to work with and I cannot recommend them enough. Topographical surveys, aerial photographs and measurements are comfortably within their gift”Andy H.
Senior Project Manager

I asked Skye Survey if they could possibly look at pegging out a large apportionment approx 30 acres for me on Borve Hill, for fencing. Great service and quick to get the job done. I would highly recommend Skye Survey, very reasonable with costs and great communication with me on work/plan timescale. ”
