Well after a long journey 640 miles! We have made it safely to the Isle of Skye! Wow it’s beautiful, stunning scenery and we have spotted some of these furry creatures. The shepherds hut is making its way to site and should arrive soon for us to unload... we will keep you posted with our Scottish adventure... #britishfarming#scotland
The kayak season is now well under way with these two paddlers who were looking to push their skills and be challenged. A feisty day from Ord to Tarskavaig and return with an otter for company. Challenge accomplished 😃

Our editor, @quercus_alba, recently visited the iconic Neist Point lighthouse on the Isle of Skye. We're sure you can agree that it was worth the trip! 🏴 🏴 🏴 🏴 🏴 🏴 #omgb#ig_scotland
Old Man of Storr, Isle of Skye taken in January. Having climbed up in the dark I was disappointed to have heavy snow showers covering the rising sun. Suddenly there was a break in the cloud allowing the sun to briefly light up the sea. The reflected light lit up the hillside in a golden glow. It lasted just long enough to get this shot and a pano including the reflection of the sun. #oldmanofstorr#skye
#europetravel#travelphotography It has been challenging this week to do justice to the amazing Isle of Skye this week with so much rain and wind. This picture I took this morning just before sunrise, trying to make most of the weather conditions, capturing the mood of the scene.
Sunset at Neist Point... Neist Point Lighthouse, designed by David Alan Stevenson, was first lit on 1 November 1909. An aerial cableway was used to take supplies to the lighthouse and cottages...the remains of it are still visible. Since 1990, the lighthouse has been operated remotely from the Northern Lighthouse Board headquarters in Edinburgh. The former keepers' cottages are now in private ownership. The sunsets from here are just adorable...😍 #neistpoint#neistpointlighthouse
One of the coolest landscapes on the Isle of Skye. In true Scottish fashion, our hike started off with blue skies, then about half way through we were pelted with strong winds and painful hailstones stones
This lone tree hanging over the edge of the Quiraing on the Isle of Skye, just about sums up this magnificent place. It’s both brutal with the changes in weather and rugged landscapes and beautiful all at the same time. The view from the top of the ridge was breathtaking everywhere you looked. It was a tough yet brilliant few days touring Skye with Gerry White waiting for breaks in the rain and mist to be able to try and capture the scenery.

Our last stop in Skye yesterday was at these waterfalls which had a great view of the Old Man of Storr. I wore my For Fox Sake sweater (📸: @miriam_soulanna) because I knew I would be meeting @maxtheknitter (scroll 👉 for the photo), who designed it. We actually only live 2 hours from each other and he was 5 minutes away from my house a few weeks ago 😂 instead we met for the first time in Edinburgh. The vlog from yesterday has been uploaded now (link in bio or my stories). Hope you’re ready for today because it’s (finally) ...
Dreich . . A Scottish word for (especially of weather) dreary; bleak . A combination of dull, overcast, drizzly, cold, misty and miserable weather. At least 4 of the above adjectives must apply before the weather is truly dreich . . What a word! Thanks to @seasaltcornwall for keeping me dry and classy on the Scottish Highlands and Islands🙏☔️ . . . #scotland#scotlandhighlands
Sitting on a cloud and dreaming about Scotland. It’s incredible to be drawn that much by a place... have you ever had that feeling? I’ve always felt country less. I was born in France, I live there but it’s been hard to relate to only one culture. I like my country, no doubt, but I like the rest as much. But I love Scotland!! 🏴 ❤️ About the illustration: it was a sketch that I liked and it became a part of that project about mermaids and folk tales creatures I was telling you about. You know what, I want ...
So, the question is... where am I? I don't know, look well… on the left side… I remember the moment I fell in love with the Isle of Skye. I was standing atop the Quiraing and looking out over the Trotternish Peninsula. It was a million different shades of green beneath a typically gray sky (there's a reason that Skye is also often referred to as “the Misty Isle”). And, to me, it was perfect. 🙏❤️😀😍😀❤️🙏 #nationalgeographictraveler#nationalgeographic ...
The village of Portree is a sweet little town with a few restaurants and COLORFUL shops. We stopped in for a few minutes on our way to The Storr (a rocky hill) on the peninsula in Isle of Skye. #explorescotland#scotlandsbeauty
First trip to Skye in 2009. My ‘gear’ then consisted of one Panasonic bridge camera that I bought secondhand and used happily for years... and... maybe a strap! Funny how these days I get totally sucked into what new piece of kit I might need and constantly criticise my work, deeming anything ‘old’ unusable. Capturing that light, that moment and most importantly for me, that memory, needs just me and whatever camera I have on me! Trying to remind myself to loosen up and continue to enjoy the creative process as much as I did back then. New skills, old ...
It's difficult for me not to snap a picture when I see a dog. They always bring a smile to my face. I stumbled upon these guys while in the Fairy Glen on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Even though they were pretty tiny pups, their stature says different. Just a reminder to stand strong. . . . . #travel#adventure
So psyched!!! A couple of my photographs of Scotland printed large on professional mat paper and ready to trim, mount and frame! The one on the left from Perth and the other, Edinburgh. #scotland#scottish
Isle of Skye Eigenlijk ligt dit kasteel net niet meer op Skye, maar we nemen deze toch maar mee in de fotoreis. Het Eilean Donan Castle is interessant genoeg, zeker bij twilight. #nordicvisionfotoreizen#isleofskye
If you haven’t already noticed, I’m beginning to transition this from a personal account to showcase more of my photography. I’ve taken so many pictures over the years that I’d love to share. Some old that I’m rediscovering and beginning to reprocess again. Some new that I’ve recently taken and never shared before. Regardless of origin, I hope you enjoy them even if you’ve seen some of them before. . I dwindled off this platform over the years because I never knew what to say along with a posted image. I hated the ‘hey look what I’m doing’ approach and ...
#marchmeetthemaker - Day 20 is the Design Process. The majority of my design process happens in my head! Nothing is written or drawn on paper, which is a problem if I want to make something similar in the future. Once I have an idea, be it a photo I’ve taken or something I’ve seen, it is then “drawn” in wool and wet felted. #marchmeetthemaker2019
