The Isle of Skye derives its name from the Norse skuy, meaning cloud. Its easy access, breathtaking scenery and romantic associations with Bonnie Prince Charlie have made it one of the most popular of the Hebridean islands. It is the largest of the Hebridean Islands, with an indented coastline, craggy mountains, coral beaches, and an abundance of birdlife (including golden eagles) and flowers. Dominating the central and southern outline of Skye are the Cuillin Hills - the Black Cuillins with broken ridges above their dark grey gabbro slopes & the Red Cuillins, rounder and softer with slopes of scree. To the north of the island are the fantastic rock shapes of the Quirang and the Old Man of Storr. The human history of Skye stretches back to Neolithic times. The more recent Norse and Celtic history of Skye is more apparent, though, and has left numerous castles and strongholds strung out along the coastline of the island.
