Hello, my name is Anna. This blog is about all the beautiful islands around the world.

07 isle of skye

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.

You can read also more about the island here.

The stamp shows thistle, the floral emblem of Scotland.

  1. I really, really love finding out about new islands through your project, Anna! And your photographs taken at Skye are all kinds of amazing. :)

    1. Thank you Katie :)

      And yes, for me it's also a super exciting part of this project :)
      Can't wait to learn more about all those islands out there!



My big dream is to receive postcards sent from every island in the world (at least those that have a postbox). If you would like to help me, please contact me at letters.from.islands@gmail.com.
