Listen to the silence; be still and let your soul catch up.
Isle of Skye, Scotland - where do I begin my this tale from ? It's the northernmost of the major islands in the Inner Hebrides that is easily accessible from the mainland.
It did catch my attention at first because of its name, a place with such a rhythmic name must be beautiful and serene, ain't it ? I wanted to be around a place which would be more peaceful, less of city noises, more of nature, hiking trails and experiences. It gave me lots of amazing scenery, winds, picturesque natural treasures, and this made me to delve deeper into love with the nature as to there is no other place as beautiful as Isle of Skye. It has lots of tiny villages with never ending pastures.
When one comes to think of Scotland, all the nature's landscapes come to the memory be it the rugged mountains, or the fauna and flora of the region which bring forth the views of colourful mosses, lochs, the weather that has lot to offer without giving much of indications, being highly unpredictable, amongst a host of other things. Thinking about finding all of these at one place, and coming to a conclusion, one would land up at Isle Of Skye.
The landscapes throughout this place are the most scenic ones I have ever come across. Traveling to this marvel offered me amazing scenes of waterfalls on the route, sea cliffs alongside, and dramatic landscapes that mountains formed. I was so impressed going through the Highlands, to this place called Isle of Skye which provided me incredible photography opportunities one after the other with amazingly raw and breathtaking views.
Since photography is one of my favourite things on the plate, mountain landscapes is the best cuisine that can be served from the host of things on the menu. Every single individual who has been to this place, must have fallen in love several times along the route while going around Isle of Skye. Lots of myths and legends revolve around this place with giants and fairy tales, also a number of ancient castles can still be found standing here. One is often under the illusions of being transported into a fantasy land.
Landscapes here are really impressive offering different patterns in the sky with frequent changes. The view, the light, the colours are ever changing. It is a joy to visit this place and one can keep snapping for next few days.
I can probably keep going on ranting about my trip to this amazing place 'Isle of Skye' for days, because it surely is one of those kinds, that has come to stay with me forever. This post might never do justice to this amazing place that stored in me the plethora of memories to take away. It is an insanely amazing place where words would fall short of doing justice to describing the experience I have had at this quiet, peaceful, and serene place.
On what an amazing luck I have been to have spent time in this wonderful part of the world! I'd love to visit this place some other day again.
If my readers want to go by my advice ? For once in a lifetime, do get to Skye!
