Abandoned Cottage. Isle of Skye, Scotland. by 


An abandoned cottage sits decaying and un-loved, amongst the flowers and weeds which now encroach upon the front door. Maybe it was once a beautiful garden….

Known as “Keepers Cottage”.
I spotted this while taking a walk through the woodlands behind Armadale castle, on the Sleat of the Isle of Skye. I peered through the open door, and saw that the very narrow, and steep wooden steps leading to the upstairs, were very worn, which indicated that a long time ago, maybe a large family dwelled within, maybe several generations. The rooms were tiny, and very dark within.
My imagination ran riot thinking about the folk of days gone by and how they lived !
Sadly, it is in such a dangerous state of decay that it is not safe to explore the interior.
Maybe my image will help this abandoned home live on a little longer ?

Shot on a Canon EOS 40D, iso 100, f22, cloudy wb, polariser, single RAW file processed in Photomatix, pseudo HDR, then into Photoshop CS3, whereI applied the Orton Effect, and sharpened with the Manny technique.
