Speed bonnie boat like a bird on the wing

Onward the sailors cry

Carry the lad that was born to be king

O’er the see to Skye. 

So goes the first verse of the Skye boat song and Skye is inextricably linked to the Bonnie Prince Charlie legend. 

Skye is an island of deep fojds and sounds, rugged mountains and quaint villages. 

Faery pools

When leaving Stirling I met a Spanish couple on a BMW. Who had said the beauty of Skye bought a tear to their eye. 

View of Portree

And it is hard to disagree. 

The vistas on each turn of the road surpassing the previous. 

And the Scottish weather continued to smile.
