The Skye's the limit: a few photos from a day on the island

Leaving Sconser for Raasay 

We spent part of the day on the island of Raasay and then drove right round the Trotternish Peninsula. Day was a mix of sunshine and showers, whereas yesterday was mainly wet.   

 Approaching Raasay 

 The handsome Raasay House now 
owned by the community and saved from ruin

Amazingly despite neglect and the fire the lovely 
wooden panelling of the library is still intact.

From Trotternish towards the Western Isles –

Hi Jim,
I wanted to post a comment on your story about From the Vineyards Direct which you posted this morning but you appear to have edited it and I can't post on it?

Any reason why?
