by Guthrie Hutton

CAPTURED MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF SKYE, FEATURING MANY PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE ISLAND PREVIOUSLY UNSEEN

Paperback: 56 pages

Publisher: Stenlake Publishing, 2019

Language: English

The Isle of Skye has been the subject of many books of old photographs of this type from various publishers. Hence why we have used one of our best authors and married him to a selection of unusual photographs which in the main have not been seen before.

Some are from super-rare postcards and some are private photographs so this selection should satisfy the locals as well as visitors and they will all learn something new from an author who has that unusual ability to make new observations. If reports can be believed the summer experience on Skye today is of being trampled underfoot by your fellow tourists, but the photos here show an island, still magic, but more remote and less visited with cars strapped or perched precariously on ferries the size of rowing boats, travellers camping by Loch Slapin when they scratched a living doing seasonal work, peat-cutting, the hard reality of crofting one hundred years ago and the less formal nature of the budget visitor experience in times gone by.
