  • Description

    "Similar view to [[2898708]] from slightly higher up. 'Skirl Naked' is the name of the buildings on the ridge to the left. The name means 'stark naked', and according to John Jamieson's 'A Etymological Dictionary of the Scottish Language' (1825) it may have originated as a place name from a Danish term for fleece wool from sheep; therefore, 'naked as a shorn sheep'."
