The purpose of this blog is to publish some of our pictures of the Isle of Skye, Scotland. We lay no claim to these being great photographs - they are just pictures of what we see, taken with ordinary compact cameras. We hope you enjoy browsing.

Skye High

This post is of some of the summit views I have photographed from the hills that surround us at Roskhill. The highest is Healabhal Bheag at just 488 metres... so no great feats of mountaineering required to reach these peaks - mostly just a slog through bog and heather - but still a huge sense of achievement for 'getting to the top' ... and just imagine the silence...!

Skye Light

Our always-clean air and the angle of the sun combine to offer us a landscape which is lit in a way not seen further south in the UK.

Here I offer a few photos (all taken by Sue) which I think illustrate 'Skye Light'
