Arts & Crafts
In the Highlands, communities gathered together and traveled as a group to the sheiling. Certainly, all the Bealtaine customs to protect the home, kin, and animals would have been completed before the move to the sheiling or booley took place. In some communities, the fire rituals were done at Midsummer, instead.
Everything within my dwelling or in my possession,
All kine and crops, all flocks and corn,
To Samhain Eve from Beltaine Eve,
With goodly progress and gentle blessing,
From sea to sea, and every river mouth,
From wave to wave, and base of waterfall.
The Sheiling Venue
Suitable places for performance, entertainment, activities, conferences or meetings around Skye are in short supply and/or expensive.
The Sheiling provides a range of low cost venue options suitable for groups of up to 100 people, with or without catering.
