A Little Imagination…Exploring Isle of Skye Through the Tain

The scent of Scotland changes as the damp rains roll in; throughout the small city of Portree the earthy smell of grass and the fresh scent of wet flowers begin to dominate the air and override the ostensibly more powerful scent of deep-frying fish and chips; instead the collage of smells mingle together in the […]
