Good Luck from the Isle of Skye

This colour postcard, featuring two fluffy, black, tartan-ribboned kittens shows views from the south of Skye. Ferries from the mainland make daily trips to Armadale, and until 1995, when the Skye Bridge was opened, the other year-round mainland link with Skye was from Kyle to Kyleakin, shown on the lower right. The lighthouse, once owned by Gavin Maxwell, is on Isle Ornsay, jutting out into the Sound of Sleat with stunning views to the hills of Knoydart. The other scene on this card is of Loch Slapin with Bla Bheinn, 928m rising behind.
