This is an account of Smith's travels on the Isle of Skye in Scotland during the summer of 1864. He spent his annual month's holiday on Skye and considered it to be a retreat from urban pressures. His creative side was inspired by the unpredictable and irrational features of the island. His work describes the contrasts of storms and calm, semi-surrealistic mountain shapes and colours and the superstitions and fantastic tales of the inhabitants. This would be his last visit to Skye, certainly in good health. At the age of thirty-seven, Smith died at Wardie, near Edinburgh in 1867.
