The Misty Isle

The Misty Isle


Moody, mist-shrouded mountains, snow-caked moorland, rushing burns and steely grey lochs: the Isle of Skye can be forbidding in winter. They can also be magical, a Narnia-style wonderland enchanting to explore

Battered by wind and rain this black rocked mystical isle has a history of Celts Clansmen and Crofters. The Cuillin Hills dominate a rugged primeval landscape where the weather and light change from minute to minute.

Colour Description: Fresh delicate grey with blue undertones

Please note: Whilst we try to replicate each colour on our website, colour on screen may vary due to a number of factors including screen resolution. We therefore advise that you order a colour card or sample pot to check actual finished colour.

The island was referred to by the Norse as Skuy (misty isle), Skýey or Skuyö (isle of cloud).

The influence of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf Stream create a mild oceanic climate. Temperatures are generally cool, averaging 6.5°C

Snow seldom lies at sea level and frosts are less frequent than on the mainland. Winds are a limiting factor for vegetation. South-westerlies are the most common In common with most islands of the west coast of Scotland, rainfall is generally high and the elevated Cuillin are wetter still giving rise to the name ‘The Misty Isle’.
