I'm pretty bad at Skyscrapers, so I assumed I'd be one of the few to struggle with this 6x6, but it seems that others found it moderately challenging as well.
I had to bifurcate R2,C5 to resolve the 1s, 2s and 3s at the end. I'm sure there's a much simpler logical solution judging by the much faster solve times.
I'll never be good at these!

kosegi,
I also had only 1s, 2s and 3s left at the end, so I assume that your board looked the same.
In that case, you will have had 1s left in columns 4 and 6 in the same two rows.
This allows you to eliminate the 1s in these rows in the other columns where they appear.
The rest is straightforward, no bifurcation required.

Ah, that's what it was. I need to pay closer attention to these X-wings.
They're easy to miss, for me at least, especially when my board is cluttered with pencilmarks.
