Isle of Skye

A place where time means nothing, and beneath every footstep lies 500 million years of history...

Skye or the Isle of Skye (Scottish Gaelic: An t-Eilean Sgitheanach or Eilean a’ Cheò) is the largest and most northerly major island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. The island’s peninsulas radiate from a mountainous centre dominated by the Cuillins, the rocky slopes of which provide some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in the country. Although it has been suggested that the Gaelic Sgitheanach describes a winged shape there is no definitive agreement as to the name’s origins.
