Isle of Skye
Welcome to my Isle of Skye - Eilean a' Cheò (Island of the mist)
The Island has a rich History covering many topics, such as: Dinosaur Fossils, Clan Warfare, Highland Clearances and the infamous 'Bonnie Prince Charlie' and the Jacobite Rebellion.
Both Clan MacDonald and Clan MacLeod have their Clan Castles on the Island. The jagged Cuillin ridge drops to the gentle white of a soft sand beach. Inlets, bays and islands create a complex lacework pattern with the sea.
It is also a great destination for Wildlife watching with the White Tailed Sea Eagle at the top of bird watchers lists. Otters, seals, whales, dolphins and red deer are just some of the other impressive creatures that can be seen on and around the Isle of Skye.
A place where time means nothing, and beneath every footstep lies 500 million years of history.
Discover the compelling past, the vibrant future and, through the essence of this remarkable land, capture memories to live with you forever. . . . .
