Isle of Skye scenery
Skye or the Isle of Skye is the largest and most northerly large island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. The island's peninsulas radiate from a mountainous centre dominated by the Cuillins, the rocky slopes of which provide some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in the country. Although it has been suggested that the Gaelic Sgitheanach describes a winged shape there is no definitive agreement as to the name's origins. The main industries are tourism, agriculture, fishing and whisky-distilling. Skye has provided the locations for various novels and feature films and is celebrated in poetry and song.
