A Little More from Skye….

Even though sheep and all things wool take priority, there are other things of interest on Skye.

Two pottery places I visited, at Uig and Edinbane.

History evidenced by one of the many Coronation mugs on view in the Crofter’s cottage in the Museum of Island Life and a truly unusual sporran (part of Scottish traditional dress) in Dunvegan Castle as well as another view of the castle with gorse in the foreground.

Music in the form of an informal gathering of musicians at the Edinbane Inn and the wonderful variety of a choir, guitar playing soloist and young piper at a ceilidh (traditional gathering for music and dancing).

And natural beauty in the form of a rock formation, Kilt Rock, formed when molten rock forced its way between layers of Jurassic sandstone rocks and the columns – resembling a kilt – formed as the molten rock cooled. This would have been a memorable guiding landmark for Scandinavian sailors navigating there in the 10th century.

And in the beauty of the Cuillin Mountain Range.

And a few sheep not on the croft where I am staying. The very beautiful Scottish Blackface.

And back at Island at the Edge, how did I miss mentioning the donkeys, Mollie and Muffin?! Their braying was often my first indication that morning chores were beginning!

And, a last look at the sheep. Every blog series should begin and end with them, don’t you think?!

Here, I think Flash tries to pretend he is a triplet as he joins the twins and their mum.

“What! You’re leaving?!”

Yes, but I’ll be back !
