Dun Fiadhairt Broch

Written by

In my last post I took a trip back in Skye's history to look at the ruined Church at Kilmuir just outside Dunvegan.  For this post I thought it would be interesting to go even further back in time to the Iron Age.

Dolphins

Written by

Have lived on Skye for nearly 6 years and every now and then we get to catch up with some Dolphins. Looking for Otters spotted a white wave in the distance. The water was like a duck pond so had to be something swimming! And there they were!

The Quiraing on Skye is one of the most recognisable locations from the island appearing in dozens of photographs and films.  A trip at dawn to get some sunrise pictures.

Recently visited the Western Isles, staying on North Uist and touring around.  We soon learned that it is possible to see these beautiful birds practically anywhere on the Uists.
