Skye, a peculiar island in Scotland

Skye is located off Scotland's northwest coast, some 184km from Glasgow. The island measures 77km in length and 38km at its widest. The largest island in Scotland's Inner Hebrides, Skye covers an area of l,740sq km about half the size of the state of Rhode Island in the USA. Skye's landscape is dominated by the spectacular Black Cuillin Hills, which an English journalist H.V. Morton (1892-1979) described in his book “In Search of Scotland”. Imagine Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries” frozen in stone and hung up like a colossal screen against the sky. It seems as if Nature when she hurled the Coolins up .. said: "I will make mountains which shall be the essence of all that can be terrible in mountains".

According to legend, the island, once flat, was inhabited by Cailleach Bhur, the goddess of winter. She had enslaved a beautiful girl, the sweetheart of spring, who appealed to the sun for help. In response, the angry sun hurled his burning spear at Cailleach Bhur as she rode across Skye. But he missed his mark and destroyed the landscape which broke into a range of hills - the Cuillins. Skye's inhabitants often tell this tale to explain the curious fact that these hills are rarely snow-covered, even in winter. When surrounding hills are covered with snow, the Black Cuillins stand dark against the sky.

Twenty peaks feature in the Black Cuillins, 15 of them more than 914m in height. The tallest, Sgur Alasdair, stands 1,009m high. The peaks came into existence some 50 million years ago. The Red Cuillin Hills, some 16km to the east are more rounded than the Black Cuillins. hi the south of the island stands the unusual rock known as the Old Man of Storr. Both these formations had their beginnings 10,000 years ago.

Little of Skye's landscape can support the barley, oats and other crops grown elsewhere in Scotland. Areas of human settlement occur only rarely. Thousands of seabirds nest on the island's coast and shore. The puffin which nests on dangerous rocks, can catch small fish in great numbers. It is not unusual for a puffin to return to its nest with as many as 14 fish in its mouth. Yet Skye's puffin population is far from "growing due largely to the attacks of lesser black-backed gulls which rob the puffins of their catch before they can reach their nests to feed their young.
