  • Who goes there :: We saw two whales cruising past our shoreline this evening... way to hard to take a picture of them .. so instead we have the gatekeeper we have to pass to get to our lookout!

  • Molach :: our new yarn base.  100 % delicious Wensleydale. Shine, strength, lustre, drape...... we love it!! #shilasdair #isleofskyenaturaldyecompany #isleofskye #britishwool #britishyarn #wensleydaleyarn #plantdye #plantdyed #naturaldyes #shilasdairyarn
  • Bog cotton :: another plant here on the Isle of Skye that I just love.  It is in full bloom, if you can call it’s wispy seed heads bloom, at the moment. The little white heads dance and bob in the breeze .. so beautiful
