Skye's the Limit
The beautiful island of Skye seems to be home for bands producing traditional Scottish music but with a modern slant.
First up is the Peatbog Faeries from as far back as 1996 from their record on Greentrax "Mellowosity".
This song puts me in mind of Tubular Bells meets The White Heather Club meets Pan Pipes - but in a good way.
Next up is something a bit more up to date - the title track from the 2012 album "Shed Life" by Sketch.
Even if you don't like the music you cannot fail to like the cover picture of a Highland Cow or a Highland Toffee Cow as they are often known as this image used to feature of the wrappers of McGowan's Highland Toffee (and maybe still does for all I know)
