If you have a look at the online POI Map I recommend the following:

LR Ord (there's a tap very near too). South of Broadford with wonderful views, right next to the sea.

LR & OR Lub Score. Northern tip of the island with wonderful sea views.

Skye was busy with Tourists, also lots of Motorhomes last week. Be careful about choosing a pull in as you will be likely to get a Tour Bus pulling in (most are Minibuses though). You can get some nice views though.

We stayed at Elgol a couple of years ago. Stayed at the harbour.
The road down and subsequently back out is a tad steep and I think if the road was wet I would of struggled. But it is stunning and there is a tap on the jetty and loos up the steep hill.
