Nova Scotia Gaelic students visit Skye. Wed 16 Feb


Sunrise at Sligachan was pretty spectacular yesterday.

Bronya & I accompanied a fine bunch of students, their teachers and Explorica guide Thea Stevens to give them a feel for their roots.Many had ancestors forced to emigrate in the clearances of the 19th century.

In addition to the usual haunts around the Trotternish Peninsula we added a walk up the Tourist Route from Sligachan as far as the second bridge.
