Inspired by the whispers of folklore that a Giantess once lived on Beinn na Caillich, on Skye. There may have been another Giantess across the waters on Raasay, and they would throw rocks at one another - creating the mountainous landscape we see today. I tried to incorporate elements of the land on her dress - ancient grains, the mountainous landscape as viewed from Raasay over to Skye, sea eagles, red deer, salmon and trees that would have once covered the island.
My thanks to the wonderful Stories of Scotland Podcast for their beautiful rendition of this story.
