Skye’s Museum of Island Life

I reblog this post for all my friends who love Scotland and/or going to visit this beautiful country soon. I also highly recommend readingcrowcanyonjournal’s previous posts on Scotland.

After our spectacular views of the Quiraing on Skye’s northern tip, John, our Rabbie’s Tour Guide, thought it would be best to take us to a museum. He must have noticed that the weather had taken a turn for the worse. So he drove us over to the northwest side of the Trotternish Peninsula to the village of Kilmuir where on a clear day you get a nice view of the strait called The Minch that separates Skye from the islands of the Outer Hebrides. But this was not a clear day. In fact, the wind was rather fierce and the rain was often horizontal as we dashed between one thatched croft house and another at John’s  museum. We discovered quickly that John’s museum was not an ordinary museum. Yes, we found some roofs over our heads. But also a lot of space between the roofs!

    Schottland steht eigentlich schon lange auf meiner Wunschliste. Das Foto oben ist sehr stimmungsvoll, aber das Wetter ist wohl noch schlimmer als in Hamburg. Hoffe, Ihr habt in Canada besseres Wetter. Wir hatten noch nicht einen Tag ohne Regen seit Wochen. Es ist sehr kühl und immer dunkel draußen. Habe Sehnsucht nach blauem griechischem Himmel. Alles Gute, Mitza

    That was an interesting post, Peter. I left a comment on the original website, but I thought I’d mention it here too.
