An important center of Gaelic culture, it is known as "An t-Eilean Sgitheanach" (Scottish Gaelic), the Isle of Skye is the largest and most northerly of the Inner Hebrides. In ancient times this territory was contested by the clan MacLeod and Donald.
Among his many notable monuments including the castle of Armadale in the south, the ancient seat of Clan Donald, and Duvegan Castle in the north, which since the thirteenth century is still the home of the MacLeod clan.
You can reach the Isle of Skye across the bridge that connects to ground, or as we did, by ferry from Mallaig.
Although it would have been more comfortable to drive, I recommend hitchhiking on Skye. It seems that the farther away from “civilization” you get and the more isolated you are, the warmer the people are.

In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
