Did you know there is a legend that the water that flows beneath the River Sligachan has been enchanted by fairies. The story surrounds Scotland’s greatest warrior who lived on Skye a female warrior who's name was Scáthach. She practiced her battle skills in the Fort of Shadows which is now known as Dunscaith Castle. The Irish demi-god arrivedd at Dunscaith & confionted Scáthach to demonstrate who had the greatest strength. They fought so intensely for some days, the battle was so close between them & could of gone either way. However Scáthach was more adetpt though Cú Chulainn was so quick and powerful. The battle wuld not end until one of them was killed. Scáthach’s child called Uathach was so frightened that her mum would eventually be slaughtered. She went over to the Sligachan river and begged for the fairies to assist her mum. Uathach cried into the water, the fairies were so touched by the daughter’s endless love and sorrow, that the he fairy queen magically appeared to Uathach, & said wash your face in the river & you will then have the knowledge required to rescue her mums life..
Glen Sligachan is among the finest place to walk through around the entire United Kingdom, it is situated on the Isle of Skye. It is in the centre of a little settlement close to the Cuillin Mountains. Glen Sligachan is such a happy tranquil place on the island. It sits under 18km of mountains, the glen has small lochs which is such a fun great to swim, along with having many – as well walking trails for hikers.An exceptional fine example of his work.
The Isle of Skye,or simply Skye (/skaɪ/ Scottish Gaelic: An t-Eilean Sgitheanach or Eilean a' Cheò), is the largest and northernmost of the major islands in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland.The island's peninsulas radiate from a mountainous hub dominated by the Cuillin, the rocky slopes of which provide some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in the country. Although Sgitheanach has been suggested to describe a winged shape, no definitive agreement exists as to the name's origins.
The island has been occupied since the Mesolithic period, and over its history has been occupied at various times by Celtic tribes including the Picts and the Gaels, Scandinavian Vikings, and most notably the powerful integrated Norse-Gaels clans of MacLeod and MacDonald. The island was considered to be under Norwegian suzerainty until the 1266 Treaty of Perth, which transferred control over to Scotland.
The 18th-century Jacobite risings led to the breaking-up of the clan system and later clearances that replaced entire communities with sheep farms, some of which involved forced emigrations to distant lands.
Resident numbers declined from over 20,000 in the early 19th century to just under 9,000 by the closing decade of the 20th century. Skye's population increased by 4% between 1991 and 2001. About a third of the residents were Gaelic speakers in 2001, and although their numbers are in decline, this aspect of island culture remains important.
