"I spend my working day taking photographs and The Flora Macdonald Hostel is located one of the most scenic locations I have visited. This part of the Isle of Skye has lochs, mountains, wildlife and a wealth interesting people only too eager to share their part of the world with you. Peter is one of these people and what he doesnt know about Skye isnt worth knowing! "
