isle of skye, part 2

The colors of Skye: mossy green, salty blue, silvery grey, peaty brown, with a touch of mustard yellow and purple heather. In other words, Harris Tweed.

Some of our favorite goodies from Scotland:

* wool
* tartan
* single malt whisky
* and a few curious characters

Cheers all!

What wonderful pastoral images. Your two Skye posts have had Stevenson's lyrics running through my mind:

Sing me a song of a lad that is gone,
Say could that lad be I.
Merry of soul, he sailed on a day,
Over the sea to Skye.

Mull was astern, Rùm to the port,
Eigg on the starboard bow.
Glory of youth glowed in his soul,
Where is that glory now?

Speed bonny boat like a bird on a wing,
Onward the sailors cry.
Carry the lad that's born to be king,
Over the sea to Skye.

Perfect juxtaposition. Have a wonderful weekend!


Knowing the Harris tweed colors are inspired by their landscape is an understatement seeing them paired like this. Great post as always.
