The Isle of Skye exerts a magnetic pull on visitors. It is a byword for spectacularly craggy mountains. Thus it is forgiven its relentlessly wet climate, which is inevitable as the big hill masses get in the way of the prevailing Atlantic weather fronts moving out of the south west. Sky has plenty of scenic wonders, thanks to its complex geology of overlapping ancient lava flows.

Received from Hazel, Scotland. As she says it is a very spiritualist place and great scenery!
