Walls
Before modern methods of transport brought wooden posts and beams to Skye, the only building materials available were those that could be derived from the land, and pretty much the only long-lasting building material was stone. Around us in NW Skye, the loc...

Skye Kat
It is now almost exactly a year since I bought Puss - my wonderful Winter Gold Jaguar XK. I gain almost as much pleasure from looking at the car as I do from driving her - and believe me, she is every bit as lovely to drive as she is to look at! In our firs...

Skye Lines
I asked Sue to suggest a theme for our next post in this blog, and she sad 'skylines'. She was thinking of the line we see between land and sky - or is that the horizon..?? Either way - I know exactly what she meant. We see a lot of sky here - we don't look...

Cloudless Skye
I will not pretend that we do not get some grey rainy days here ... just occasionally....  Or maybe just a bit more often than that... But I promise you that we also get sparkling clear days from time to time, when there is not a cloud to be seen, and the a...

Skye Villages - Struan
Following on from my last two posts in this blog, suggesting
that Skye has no proper ‘villages’ – I can now sense indignation from residents
of at least a couple of other locations on the island who may consider that
they inhabit a ‘village’. So, for this p...

Skye Villages - Edinbane
This is my second post featuring villages on Skye. Because settlements here grew as crofting 'townships', where every house had a few acres of land around it,  Skye has very few nucleated villages, such as you might find in England and Wales. After Carbost ...

Skye Villages - Carbost
This is the Carbost with the distillery, not the Carbost near Portree. And, yes - Skye has a number of places which share the same name - it's an ancient Gaelic ploy designed to confuse the tourists. So - Villages... Hmmm. On Skye, the locals refer to Portr...

Skye's Sea Cliffs
A big part of the beauty of the landscape of the Isle of Skye can be attributed by the combination of moorland, mountains and water - ever-changing vistas of which appear around almost every bend in the road. Much of the water is the sea - Skye is deeply in...

Moor or Less
Most of Skye is Moor. Less of Skye has ever been altered in any way by human intervention. Away from the few roads and settlements lie thousands of acres of grasses, heather and mosses - a true natural wilderness of desolate, unmolested beauty. Skye moorlan...
