    • thie coast of Donegal is very close to the west coast of Scotland and has a lot of social and historical connections too. many people went from here to work in ‘the tunnels’on road building projects and also for the potato harvest. The rugged landscape is very similar in some parts too. In the winter 2006 / 7 I spent 12 weeks, in 6 blocks 2 weeks each, staying in a tiny cottage on the island of Lismore, off Oban in the inner Hebrides, it was a kind of preparation for living here in wild west Donegal full time!

      • I have an idea of what that must have been like, maybe. I used to live on Skye and studying in Glasgow, would go up there in the holidays by road and over by ferry at Mallaig. Your photos have that feeling of a wet climate and everything so green

      • I would love to visit Skye sometime, I particularly love the Western islands with the special clear cold light and the amazing purity of the air. thanks for your. comments, take care, Liz
