Scottish Islands...Ascrib Islands

by WAHEEDASLAM

owned by Lord Palumbo the Ascrib Islands are a group of small islands lying in Loch Snizort off the north west coast of Skye, Scotland.Together with Isay and Loch Dunvegan, they are designated as a Special Area of Conservation due to the breeding colonies of the common seal.Ascrib is a group of seven islands..They are not so big,biggest in about halg a mile long.Fishing is a great tourist attraction on the islands.There used to be a Skeabost House Hotel the owner used to take the hotel guests out fishing in the hotel boat.Now, sadly, the boat is sold and both the owner and the ghillie reside in Skeabost Cemetery.

Isle of Skye

by margaretvn

This lovely island is the largest of the Inner Hebrides and it is reached by crossing a tourist trap! - the toll bridge from Kyle of Lochalsh. Actually the bridge is a trap for everyone NOT just tourists. The isle has a rich variety of scenery and although it is known as the misty isle because of the weather it can get, we have always been lucky when we have been there. But be warned though and do take waterproof clothing. The isle has a volcanic plateau in the north, the wonderful Cuillins with their peaks shaped by the ice and its coast has numerous sea lochs. The southern limestone grasslands have numerous ruins of crofts - these bear witness to the Clearances of the 1790's. Of course the islands most romantic historical association is that with Bonnie Prince Charlie. He was the last Stuart claimant to the throne. He came to Scotland in 1745 from France. With his army he marched as far south as Derby but was driven back to Culloden and defeated in April 1746. The Prince was hunted throughout the Highlands for 5 months. He escaped, dressed as a maidservant, with Flora MacDonald to SKye. He finally made his way to France and died in Rome. Flora died in 1790 and was buried at Kilmuir wrapped, it is said, in a sheet from the Prince's bed.
There is the lovely castle of the MacLeods - Dunvegan in the north. It has been the seat of the chiefs of the clan MacLeod since the 11th century. In the castle hangs the "Fairy Flag" - this worn old piece of silk is fabled to be magical - it is sadi that it protects the clan.
The Cuillins are beautiful in any weather and they offer good climbing and walking opportunities.
Also worth visiting are the ruins of a chapel at Skeabost. There are Medieval tombs in the graveyard and the chapel has associations with St. Columba.
