Shades of Blue

Mingay, in Loch Dunvegan. Skye, is one of a chain of islands. The others are Clett and Isay. They are often set in shades of blue from the sea and sky. However, Mingay has an extra dimension for it is often referred to as the 'Bluebell Isle' owing to the profusion of these flowers on the island in the Spring. It is pictured here featuring a former lime kiln on its eastern shore. Ten years ago the island was for sale at £40,000.

Scottish Islands Explorer - not for sale, at present. Maybe in ten years time.

Lime kiln on the Isle of Mingay This is a disused Lime Kiln, and was used to create lime from shells. Not sure of age but probably early 1800's.
