Isle of Skye, Sotland.

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Today, I am posting information on the Isle of Skye. The Isle of Skye is the most scenically spectacular of the Scottish islands, it takes its name from the old Norse sky-a meaning "cloud island". Despite the unpredictable weather, tourism is an important part of island's economy and, in the summer months, the island is busy with tourists.

Isle of Skye it is one of the most tourist destinations and it offers a lot of things to see and to do. The Quiraing is a spectacular landslip on the eastern face of Meall na Suiramach, The northern summit of the Trotternish Ridge on the Isle of Skye.

Dunvegan Castle is home of the chiefs MacLeod for 800 years. It is possible to trace the history of the family and the clan from the days of their Norse ancestry through generations to the present day.

The Kilt Rock is the top rock composed of columnar basalt, giving the impression of the pleats in the kilt. There is a beautiful waterfall nearby.

Overall, a great palce to visit.
