Skye and island of Raasay from above Applecross

The Isle of Skye, commonly known as Skye, is the largest and most northerly island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. In Scottish Gaelic it is commonly referred to as An t-Eilean Sgitheanach ("The Winged Isle").

Raasay (Scottish Gaelic: Ratharsair) is an island between the Isle of Skye and the mainland of Scotland. It is separated from Skye by the Sound of Raasay and from Applecross by the Inner Sound.

The name Applecross is at least 1300 years old and is used locally to refer to the 19th century village with the pub and post office, lying on the small Applecross Bay.
