Most of the territory of Scotland consists of islands: Hebrides, Orkney, and Shetland. Skye Island is the largest of the Inner Hebrides, a part of Scotland. It occupies the northern position in the archipelago and is connected to the mainland by a bridge Skyebridge built in 1995. The island is famous for its picturesque landscape harsh. It attracts by open deserted landscapes, castles and endless coasts. Its tiny towns and villages are scattered over a considerable distance from each other on the low-lying lands of the coast or in the mountain gorges. Isle of Skye is the real end of the world, harsh beauty of which is breathtaking, and the changeable Skye Island won’t leave anyone indifferent.

Wildlife and the atmosphere that reigns on the island, literally saturated by various ancient beliefs, is literally the same with every rock and a spring connected with some mystical legend. The first mention of the island dates back to the II century. Here, even in the conventional roadside stones have marks III- VII centuries. People have been living here since the Bronze Age, and later landed on the island of the Irish tribes and set up their own kingdom, then the Vikings Lords of the islands came, battles and clans’ feud, and endless war with the British. The sights of the Skye Island are also generic MacDonalds locks. Armadale Castle is almost completely destroyed; Knock Castle, which is also called the castle Camus, originally belonged to the genus MacLeod, then he took the MacDonalds, and then for many years these two clans fought for it, until the end of the XVII century.
