Lucid Dream Real Estate: Isle of Skye

Something has become vividly clear to me since starting this blog. Simply put, there are many people in the world who ache for Scotland. Even for those who have no ancestral connection to the place, there are mysteries in this wee country that can rise up like the mist from the sea and weave any history together with this "land of brown heath and shaggy wood." And just like that, you're stuck, not able to leave (like me) or forever wishing yourself back.

It is to this yearning that I dedicate a periodic series of photos of wholly impractical yet swoon-worthy dwellings around Scotland. The idea came about during a recent visit to the Isle of Skye, near Dunvegan, where I stood looking out towards the mountains known as MacLeod's Tables.
