12 months ago Kay and I toured parts of Scotland. We spent a lovely time together on the Isle of Skye. While you enjoy a few photos of our time on the road to Skye, listen to a beautiful song from a very popular Scottish group, Runrig. I wish I'd bought more of their music!

Haunting music - love it! I love Celtic music in general..Great pictures too..The landscape of Ireland and Scotland is something I want to see some day - soon I hope!

Karl said...

that landscape is only something i see in movies. it's great that it's still amazing in photos as it probably is on site.

Jim said...

Hi Corrine, Runrig is great for Celtic music, been arounf for a long time, with lots on YouTube.

Hi Karl, yes, the Isle of Skye is very picturesque, but pick your time to go there. Windy and wet as very exposed. But we struck sun.

morning, Jim. my day started with real freshness of your wonderful tuesday video.

scotland is beautiful, with the heavenly blue sky protecting the green mother earth, the edgy steep sharp rocks, mountains standing high and the blue waters flowing at peace .......all resembling SCOTLAND'S PRIDE.

Sneha said...

Ahh very refreshing...beautiful music and more beautiful the video you have shared...
I loved the shooting over water, it gives a feeling like we r flying..

Hi Jessica, the landscape is exspansive, huge island with many mountains,inlets, harbours, and ruined crofts along with a few castles.

Jim said...

Gidday Sancheetah. It's a wonderful song to accompany a few pics of our time on the road to Skye.
The catle is Eileen Donagh Castle which is on the mainland approach road to Skye. It is the best preserved castle in Scotland as was totally renovated in it's original style way back in the '30's I think.

Love the celtic music...another favorite Scottish band of mine is Capercaillie (they also do lots of songs in the Gaelic). Lovely photos too, Jim...Scotland is on my list of places to visit one day. Thanks for sharing this.

Hi Sneha,. yes, probably one of the greatest songs I have heard Runrig sing! As you say hauntingly evocative of perhaps leaving a home country or leaving a loved one.

Jan said...

Hi Bec, I buy music CDs from places we travel, and I bought Calecaille in Fort Augustus at bottom of Loch Ness so have been playing it today!.

Hi Jan, got a lot more photos but the days were mostly overcast and they all turned out very dark so haven't posted very many. They need editing.

Hi Alpana, yes that music does exert a powerful pull back to Scotland, birthplace of our forebears for my wife and I. We felt at home there.

Jim said...

Hi Nelieta, Yep, I think we'll be heading back.

Mari, stick it on your list of great photography places to visit!

Hi Bonnie. I 'll be checking out your videao offering too!

Great! McKinnon's are from the Isle of Sky and I visited when I was in Scotland in 1980. Absolutely loved the island.
