Isle of Skye Botanical Beauties

The imaginative tales of the Isle of Skye fairies, are not so hard to believe, especially when surrounded by magical gardens. If you don’t accept the existence of fairies, you might change your mind with these breathtaking, Isle of Skye botanical beauties. At every turn, I was captivated by fascinating flowers. I discovered fairy hats and sparklers; chandeliers and fireworks; fairy ladders and cushions. They were all in plain sight, but the fairies were asleep.

The Dunvegan Castle gardens were the most enchanting, although the nature walks at the Clan Donald Centre gardens were stunning. The lilies below were waiting to greet us in front of a wonderful shop called Bay Pottery in Armadale.

It seemed fitting to bow to the flowers and they responded in kind.

The gardens at Dunvegan Castle were scattered with meandering streams, waterfalls and paths, each full of wonder. I could easily imagine spending countless hours studying the botanicals, feeling content and untroubled.

Of course the thistle is one of my favorites. As a symbol of Scotland, it’s described as delicately beautiful, stubborn and tenacious. What’s not to love?
