2823 UNITED KINGDOM (Scotland) - The map of Pabay Island

Pabay is an island in the Inner Sound of Skye, the largest and most northerly major island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. It lies south of Longay and east of the larger Scalpay. The island is formed of fossil-containing limestone, and forms a flat plateau with cliffs on the North and East shores. The surrounding low reefs encroach on its shores and double the area at low water. Pabay was inhabited in the 19th century, but now it has a single house and is only accessible by boat or helicopter. It issues its own postage stamps.

About the stamps

The first stamp is one of the first issued by Pabay (PS005), in 1963, under the name Europa Issue Flowers Rouletted.

The second stamp is part of the definitive series about which I wrote here.
