Sligachan Bridge, Skye par Lee Smith
Via Flickr :
As we were leaving Skye we decided to stop at Sligachan, the weather was unforgiving with constant rain and everything got soaked. A tiny break in the rain allowed me to dry my lens and get a shot that wasn’t covered in water droplets. Although I would have wished for brighter skies I think the gloom adds to the atmosphere in this one.

‘Hearing Voices’ - The Fairy Glen - Isle of Skye by Gavin Hardcastle - Fototripper

Imagine the chills I felt as for the second time I heard voices in the Fairy Glen - Scottish voices. This was my second visit to this mystical and enchanted Glen on the Isle of Skye on Scotland. The day before I felt sure I could just hear a faint conversation but as I stood atop the hill to survey the surrounding area not a soul could be seen. On the second day I’d completely forgotten about the mystery voices until once again they wafted my way. I couldn’t quite make out the words as they seemed to fade in and out, so I made a concerted effort to try strain my ears and listen harder. Again, the voices gently lapped over the crenellated hillocks and as I prepared to by awed by the magical whisperings of otherworldly fairies I finally heard this clear pronouncement. “Frae Fecks sake man, get yer feckin shayte together and pass me that feckin stack!” Magical, truly magical thought I. To this day I’m convinced it was the fairies and nothing to do with the middle aged man and boy working on a gate repair about half a kilometer away from the Glen. Enjoy Gavin Hardcastle

Highland Cattle - Skye by Michael Carver

These two wouldn’t budge. I honked my horn and they just walked further out into the road. As a breed they are generally quite timid so I pulled up at the side of the road and took a few photos. They are probably well used to tourists snapping them, Im sure the one on the left is smiling. :o)
