a very old boat … 2 years of planning …. a trip to be remembered.
This is absolutely breath-taking and heart-stopping. Danny Macaskill returns home to Skye to ride these amazing mountains on his bike.
If you are inspired to walk the mountains, check out this website.
Skye Weavers …. powered by pedal.
Here’s a video showing the work of Skye Weavers from start to finish. If you are interested in learning more about them or in buying their products, their website can be found here.
In the wonderful world of blogging, you may run into people online who you would like to have a visit with in person.
I have been following the fun-loving couple, Rosie and Andrew, as they create amazing photography and write witty comments on their blog and Facebook page.
They are now famous as they have been featured on VisitScotland’s video “Islay Brilliant Island Moments”, a new TV ad for Homecoming 2014. Rosie and Andrew are from Skye but they do a lovely job of selling us on Islay.
I am crazy about Islay and I haven’t even been yet. Just imagine how excited I’ll be when I actually get there.
just read this very nice article on whether Skye is open to visitors in the Winter. the author says it depends on what you’re coming for … if you want to cosy up with a book and maybe your own food as eating out is a bit scarce in the winter, then this is the place for you.
if you have a Pinterest account, I’d highly recommend adding Andrew and Rosie Woodhouse. Beautiful photos.
(I’m working on adding Pinterest, it looks like fun but I just want to make sure I can keep up with it along with all the other social media I follow. I do love pictures and images though. 🙂 )
