A Whale Story from the Isle of Skye, Scotland

Home » News » A Whale Story from the Isle of Skye, Scotland

I laughed out loud at this notice as it was an obvious spoof write up on what they called the “Long Tailed Water Horse” and a nod to the Loch Ness Monster

Wandering back to my glamping van I vowed to get to the bottom of why a real ‘cet’ skeleton was on the top of this rock.

The following morning I was given permission by the landowner to battle my way through the garden jungle to view the bones of what he assured me was a minke whale…….?, and what I was certain was NOT this species.

I was able to get alongside and took some images which pretty conclusively identifies the species to which these bones belong……do I now make this a bit of a quiz and let you identify it or tell you what I am pretty sure it is?

I can however tell you that in a twelve hour period I had “A Whale of a Time”……just had to say that!!!’
