Moving to Skye

 '...nobody born in any other parts of the world
will choose this country for their residence...'
Dr. Samuel Johnson, on the Isle of Skye - 1775

More and more people are choosing to make a move to live permanently on Skye. The population of the island is growing, and everywhere there are old houses being restored and new houses being built. Such a move is often a considerable change in lifestyle. It is certainly not right for everyone - in fact it would probably be quite wrong for most. So, a move to Skye deserves plenty of consideration. But - if you are one of the lucky ones who can live without Waitrose or Bloomingdales, who values community above BMWs, who would rather hike the hills in the rain than lie by a pool in the sunshine - do think seriously about it. It could be the best thing you ever do for yourself, and your family.
