"Love Skye-Love Nature-Love Life" The Isle of Skye has dramatic mountains, wild glens and amazing seascapes; it offers a varied wilderness for free spirits. There is an abundance of hidden places full of native trees, wildflowers and wildlife to enjoy, in peace and tranquility. This sensational Island changes constantly through the seasons, with wild Atlantic storms, snowy mountains and balmy Summer nights with spectacular skies. The Summer wildflowers provide a colourful feast for insects, which feed the many species of songbirds, both native and Summer visitors. Skyenatureblog.com provides an artistic journey through the seasons, describing the natural beauty of the island through, prose, poetry, art, photographs and videos. I hope to give readers a taste of the Skye experience. I hope you enjoy the journey About Me Love Skye: We moved to the Isle of Skye 25 years ago with my husband and young family to provide a more natural environment for our children. We had many trials and tribulations during our great adventure, but we survived! I intend to write about the great adventure in the future. We own Dunshee Bed and Breakfast and enjoy providing hospitality for people from all over the world. Love Nature: We are fortunate to have a croft and a wildflower meadow which runs along the banks of the river Roskhill. I named this Oran Uisge wildlife reserve- this means “song of water” in Gaelic. I love the natural world, which brings me great happiness and contentment. Living on Skye brings you closer to nature especially, the weather and wild landscapes. These inspire my art and poetry which, are my favourite pastimes. I have a strong interest in nature conservation and hope to develop a wildlife pond this year as well as plant 100 trees. Love Life: I enjoy daily life, living on this beautiful island and working with local people and families. We have a 2.5-acre croft, next to the house and we are preparing for the polytunnel and chickens.
