Where Mystery Lives

The Isle of Eigg 


This little island just a few miles off Scotland  produces its own music! As you run your hands through the sand at the Bay of Laig you may hear high-pitched notes, like the sounds of some otherworldly string section warming up. The sand grains are pure quartz,highly rounded and of fairly equal size. In dry conditions, they can rub against each other in a way that produces instrument-like vibrations,resulting in the beach’s mysterious song.

    Interesting story. The cloud in the photo looks like a bird flying over the island too.
