This was taken on the Isle of Skye at the Skye Museum of Island Life. When we arrived, weather was very diverse with strong wind, rain showers and sunny episodes in between. This caused in one instance the rainbow appearing right over the roof of the barn. The turf construction is not obvious, but under the thatched roof, there is a layer of turf squares serving as insulation and additional rain/wind proofing. Side walls are made of stone with turf sealing.
