Isle of Skye, Isle Ornsay

Isle Ornsay is the name of the island, just seen on the right of this photograph, which lies close to the shore on the eastern side of the south of Skye, in Sleat. Ornsay derives from the Norse word for a tidal island, one joined to the mainland at low tide. The village of the same name was founded in the early 19th century and provided a protected harbour for fishing vessels and a commercial centre for the area. Also known as Eilean Iarmain, the buildings pictured include a quay dating from 1805, a general store, former stables, a grain store and, to the left with glazed frontage, Hotel Eilean Iarmain. This latter building was originally an inn dating from about 1893. Most of the buildings were bought by Sir Iain Noble in 1972, and were then restored or converted, forming the hub of his aims to revitalise the Gaelic language and culture.

Is e Eilean Iarmain an t-eilean a chithear air taobh deis na deilbhe seo. Tha e faisg air a' chladach air costa an ear Shlèite ann an ceann a tuath an Eilein Sgiathanaich. Tha Isle Ornsay, ainm Beurla, an eilean a' tighinn bhon fhacal Lochlannach air eilean-tràghaidh', eilean a tha ceangailte ri tìr-mòr nuair a bhios muir-tràigh ann. Chaidh am baile leis an aon ainm a stèidheachadh tràth san 19mh linn mar chala fasgach agus mar bhaile coimeirsealta don sgìre.

Anns an deilbh seo, chithear an cidhe a chaidh a thogail ann an 1805, bùth, stàballan, sìol-lann agus air an taobh chlì, Taigh-òsta Eilean Iarmain. Chaidh an taigh-òsta seo a thogail mun bhliadhna 1893. Chaidh a' mhòr-chuid de na toglaichean a cheannach le Sir Iain Noble ann an 1972 agus chaidh iad an uair sin an sgeadachadh no ath-thogail. Bha seo aig teas meadhain plana Noble gus Gàidhlig agus a cultar ath-bheothachadh san sgìre.
