W

elcome to the November/December edition of Inside Magazine, the local magazine for Chingford and Highams Park. Upon retiring, I resolved to improve my physical health, duly joined a gym, attended once, and got freaked out by the athletes cavorting around my corpulent form, lifting weights and bouncing around. I resolved never to go again, and to improve, instead, my mental health. I now download a ton of cryptic crosswords, then sit in a chair and fill them in. I imagine myself in a gym of the mind, surrounded by lesser beings who shyly ask “Whatcha fillin’ in there, bud?” “Times. Cryptic. 5 mins.” “Sheesh,” the bloke says. “I’m only on the Concise.” “Practice, pal,” I say. “Practice, and it will come.” These crosswords don’t all come for free. The FT is free, but to download some, one must sit through a 30 second ad for pet insurance. Yet this arduous task seems to render the crossword more desirable. Once, many years ago, on holiday in Scotland, we arrived at Mallaig, to see Skye across the water, its peaks seeming to float on the horizon like distant dreams as vast boats prepared to make the crossing. We had no time to venture there ourselves, and Skye remained an unattainable vision. Maybe the extra effort of getting there somehow made the island even more desirable. This year, we went there, but not on a great big boat. A bridge now links Skye to the mainland with barely a roundabout to navigate. You hardly blink as you make the crossing. Skye has become attainable – the FT crossword, if you will, of the island world. My exploits can be found elsewhere in this edition on page 8.

THE ISLE OF SKYE or Jokes, Japan and Jubilation STORY & IMAGES: DAVID YOUNG

A

fter many hours of travel, a stopover somewhere in Scotland, and many more hours of travel, we arrived at our holiday cottage on Skye. I rushed inside to explore, and, like all blokes, started exploring the TV’s capabilities. “Let’s see what’s on Skye News!!” I called out to my wife, jubilantly. “Really?” she said disdainfully. “You drove all that way for one joke?” “No, no,” I replied. “What do you take me for? I have many more such jokes. Let’s look at Skye Comedy. Let’s find Skye Sports. Now be a lamb and unload the car. I want to see if we get Skye Documentaries.” It was a bad start. My joke had not had the desired effect, but I put this down to my wife having a poor sense of humour. As she hauled in our four suitcases and my huge system of cameras, I felt a little sorry for her. In fact, we had come to Skye for the scenery as much as the endless jokes that I’d prepared. It THE QUIRAING

BLACK CUILLIN FROM ELGOL

had always fascinated me by virtue of its distance (probably quicker to go to Japan) (by boat). Pictures in calendars and geological magazines (I only get them for the articles, you’ll understand) conjured up the image of an island of astounding rugged peaks erupting from farmland, of moorlands and ruined castles, of eagles soaring over forbidding cliffs, of harbour towns where fishing boats bob. Some calendars and magazines show physically perfect but unattainable beauty (I’m told) which makes reality a disappointment. But Skye lives up to expectations, over and over again. Fanned out in the ocean, like a squashed bug, the island is a pattern of ridges and headlands that stick out into the sea, separated by sea lochs where seals come to rest on rocks beneath the background of gaunt and jagged peaks. The fascinating shapes of Skye’s strangest peaks owe their

formation to a rock called gabbro, which crystallized underground into a dark, coarse rock, that was thrust upwards by a volcano some 50 million years ago. These new rocks were shaped into sharp ridges and mountains, beneath which the valleys became flooded by the sea. The highest peaks of Skye are in the two Cuillin ranges, the Black and the Red Cuillin. The Black Cuillin is a terrifying range, 7 miles long, with 27 summits along its spine, sharp needles like arrowheads thrusting from the ridge. The Red Cuillin is gentler and rounder, allegedly a paradise for hillwalkers, but a little too challenging for these old legs. The Quiraing lies on the Totternish Ridge, formed by a cataclysmic series of landslides which have left this escarpment, vertical cliffs facing east and grassy moorland leading gently to the west. A tricky path runs beneath the cliffs through mysterious outcrops like The Needle or the Prison peak. Away from these harsh and intimidating scenes, small towns like Uig and Portree litter the battered coastline, offering romantic escape by boat to lands even more distant like Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. Between the violent eruptions of peaks and

ridges there lies scenery of forests and moorland and here and there a flat area of pasture where sheep quietly graze in stark contrast to the formidable cliffs at the end of their field. Walking is tough. We are fairly fit and experienced walkers who have climbed the highest peaks of Cumbria and have walked countless miles in the Alps. Yet Skye was hard work, a bit scary at times, frequently uncertain, but ultimately gratifying when an arduous clamber rewards with a breathtaking scene unlike anything else that I’ve ever seen. Exhaustion gives way to jubilation. But, like reaching Skye itself, the reward of achievement is all the sweeter for the difficulty of attaining one’s goal. But a joke makes it all worthwhile. We reached the Skye.

CHANGE YOUR GLASS NOT THE FRAME MISTED WINDOWS? If you have noticed misted windows or foggy windows, it is possible you might be suffering from blown windows. We are a window repair company that only replace the panes and never the frames. Saving money compared to conventional double glazing repair.
