    Broadford Bay

    Broadford, is the second-largest settlement on Skye.

    Like many places in Skye, Broadford derives its name from Old Norse. To the Norsemen this was Breiðafjorðr - the wide bay.

    The Gaelic name is of modern derivation and assumes that the "ford" element meant a river crossing.

    Broadford was a cattle market until 1812, when Telford built the road from Portree to Kyleakin. Veterans of the Napoleonic Wars settled during the first half of the 19th century. Writing in the middle of the 19th century, Alexander Smith said, "If Portree is the London of Skye, Broadford is its Manchester.

    Legend holds that the recipe for the liqueur Drambuie was given by Bonnie Prince Charlie to Clan MacKinnon who then passed it onto James Ross late 19th century. Ross ran the Broadford Inn (now the Broadford Hotel), where he developed and improved the recipe, initially for his friends and then later to patrons. Ross then began to sell it further afield and the name was registered as a trademark in 1893.

    Trotternish Heather

    Trotternish or Tròndairnis is the northernmost peninsula of Skye.

    One of its more well-known features is the Trotternish landslip, a massive landslide that runs almost the full length of the peninsula, some 30 kilometres. The landslip contains two of Skye's most famous landmarks: the Old Man of Storr, an isolated rocky pinnacle, and the Quiraing, an area of dramatic and unusual rock formations. The summit of The Storr, on whose slopes the Old Man of Storr is located, is the highest point of the peninsula.

    Purple heather is also known as fine leaved heath and bell heather.  The purple heather is the first to flower (mid june) and grows on dry moorland and rocks throughout the island.

    In the old days it had many uses from tanning hides to thatching roofs and making brooms.

    Colour Description: Bold mid toned purple
