Hebridean View

The view is from the west coast of the Trotternish Peninsula Isle of Skye (Inner Hebrides), looking northwest over the Minch towards the mountains on the island of Lewis and Harris (Outer Hebrides). The cottages in the middle ground constitute the crofting community of Totscore/Totasgor (Gaelic).

The Hebridean islands can be divided into two main groups, separated from one another by the Minch to the north and the Sea of the Hebrides to the south. The Inner Hebrides lie closer to mainland Scotland and include Islay, Jura, Skye, Mull, Raasay, Staffa and the Small Isles. There are 36 inhabited islands in this group.

The Outer Hebrides form a chain of more than 100 islands and small *skerries located about 70 kilometres (45 mi) west of mainland Scotland. Among them, 15 are inhabited. The main inhabited islands include Lewis and Harris, North Uist, Benbecula, South Uist, and Barra.

*A skerry is a small rocky island or islet, that may be covered by water at high tide or during storms. Usually too small for human habitation, It may simply be a rocky reef. The term skerry is derived from the Old Norse sker, which means a rock in the sea.They are often used by seabirds and seals for resting on.
