A little more info about the island 

Did you know that the Isle of Skye is not actually an island? It is connected to the Scottish mainland by a bridge, which was completed in 1995. The island is home to some of Scotland’s most breathtaking landscapes, including the iconic Cuillin mountain range and the Quiraing rock formations.

Skye is also rich in history and legend, with stories of clan battles and ancient myths of fairies and giants. The island’s Dunvegan Castle is one of the oldest continuously inhabited castles in Scotland, and was once home to the Chiefs of Clan MacLeod. Skye is also known for its vibrant arts scene and traditional crafts, including the iconic Fair Isle knitwear and the Skye Boat Song, which tells the story of Bonnie Prince Charlie’s escape to the island after the Battle of Culloden.
