The next postcard is from the Isle of Skye (or as it is called in scottish gaelic: An t-Eilean Sgitheanach). It is the biggest island of Inner Hebrides (second largest in Scotland) and it is famous for its breathtaking landscapes.
I visited the island a year ago, on my way to Outer Hebrides, and I even stayed at a campsite at Sligachan, where the postcard photo was taken. It was truly amazing to wake up in such place, with a view over the Cuillins mountains. Even though the island is very popular with tourists (and I prefer calmer places) it was really easy to find completely empty places, where there is only you, and the incredible nature. Skye is definitely one of my favourite islands, I hope I will go back there soon. Here are some of the pictures from my visit there.

The stamp shows thistle, the floral emblem of Scotland.
