The purpose of this blog is to publish some of our pictures of the Isle of Skye, Scotland. We lay no claim to these being great photographs - they are just pictures of what we see, taken with ordinary compact cameras. We hope you enjoy browsing.

Trees on Skye

As in much of the Highlands, we have our pine, spruce and larch plantations on Skye, but we have some woodland too. Also, trees have often been planted on crofts to provide some protection from the wind. Even on the open moorland, a gorge or hillside can provide enough shelter to allow tough little trees to become established.

This post adds more pictures to the post 'Trees and Storms on Skye', which I published earlier today on my Skye Calling blog -
