The Isle Of Skye


Just at the top of the U.k., at the north of Scotland,in the highlands are the Hebrides , consisting of many islands there are the inner and outer hebrides, on the 3rd of june this year we arrived in one of the islands Skye one of the largest.we decided to go in june being statistically the driest month in the year with august being the wettest!,we stayed in the main town which is portree (pictured  below)._DSC3835

The  picture at the top is Sligachan the entrance to the cuillin hills, the area is run and owned by the john muir trust, a truly wild place! home to golden eagles, which can bee seen if you are in the right place at the right time.there are also white tailed eagles  which can be seen if you take one of the boat trips out of portree_DSC4093


there are a few pairs now and they are established again after becoming extinct during the earlier part of the 20th century,and following a successful reintroduction by the rspb ,_DSC7183

Going south towards the loch of kyle  bridge ,you find the smaller village of broadford,from everywhere on skye there is a picture view so having a camera with you is a good idea,as is plenty of memory cards!!!_DSC7390

flora and fauna are  abound from heather to wild flowers and pine martins!


travel north and you find dunvegan with its castle  well worth a visit,and waternish a peninsula north of dunvegan, here the coast meets land and the beaches are coral_DSC4134


you can see the white  coral in the picture above_DSC7197

with eagles soaring high above the  land and see you are left with a certain feeling that something bigger higher than us is the orchestrator  of it all ,finally after a week that passed  way to quickly we left filled with awe and wonder
