Speed Bonny Boat Like a Bird on a Wing

Eilean a' Cheo' = The Misty Island, I finallly found you! The opening title translates from the Gaelic into English as The Isle of Skye, Gaelic could never be accused of being lazy - the letters in the name are more than doubled - the pleasure in Skye is in triplicate.
Ah Skye = where the sky really does reach down to kiss the sea.
The update is a YouTube link to the Skye Boat Song with some more lovely views when you cross the sea to Skye.

    What a great page! You seem to be travelling just like I do - slowly and always on the lookout for the small things to discover!

    Excellent page! Castles, gardens, excellent scenery, food and much more, this Island is beautiful! The Castle gardens were beautiful, pity others miss them, and like you, I can never resist looking in a Garden shop!

    Absolutely wonderful Isle of Skye travel page with great photographs and excellent travel tips. The Dunvegan Castle and its gardens certainly look amazing, and so is the Little Lochan. Thanks for the virtual tour. ~ho & pang

    The Isle of Skye, such a wonderful place to be! Many thanks for your tips and the really great photos. They reminded me of places we´ve already been to during our last visits and introduce new places we´ll visit this year.
