Skye

The Island



Skye, with its soaring peaks, sea-battered coastline and sometimes savage storms, is one of the most beautiful parts of Britain. To the people who live there, it is simply an t-eilean, the island, and it occupies an almost mythical place in the minds of many Scots.

Written by a man who lives and works there, Skye: The Island marks a departure in books about the Scottish Highlands and Islands. Without sentimentalising or romanticising, it portrays Skye as it really is; evocative, moving, committed, passionate and hopeful, it is the best book you will read about the island.
