Hoe many articles for the Isle of Skye do we need?

Travel Forums Wiki Travel Guide Hoe many articles for the Isle of Skye do we need?

(Hoe = How, in the title )

This look a bit overdone:

Isle of Skye
Skye
Skye and the small Islands

What can we do with it?

Probably combine them and make the other one direct to the main one.
Now it's only about deciding which is the right title.
The last one is empty

Curious where you got that last one from; was it linked to somewhere? If so, we can just change the link on that one. I've added in the content from the Skye one on the Isle of Skye article and redirected the second one accordingly.

It's actually Skye and Small Isles I noticed. Strange though that by naming it slightly otherwise, it gives a link to an existing but empty article. Just like this

So basically there is an article Scottish Islands, Inner Hebrides, Skye and small isles, and seperate Skye (sle of skye) and separate small islands articles.
Just like an article Netherlands&Belgium....useless

I noticed this before: people start an article and if the title is not the same as an existing one it is not noticed (no warming that the article already exists). This happened to the Borobudur and Borubudur article as well.
Obviously, the first one started by me was not spelled well, but that doesn't matter: just have a look if something similar exists. I could have called it Borobudur temple complexe(s) or whatever and then name of the article wouldn't have been the same either.

typo : should be this one: Skye and Small Isles.
Which is not empty.

Ah yes, that one should probably also be added to the Isle_of_Skye article. I actually didn't realize this till afterwards but looks like I accidently 'stole' your work by making the changes and pasting it into the new article. Do you want to make this change to get back on top contributors list? Sorry about that; really didn't cross my mind till after I'd done it

Talking to HerrBert or me;)
Doesn't mind really, as long as it is a good article and there isn't more than one
Looks fine now, could do with some info of people who know lots more about it.

I have the same feeling. At the moment you know the best what has already been done, so if you want go ahead and finish the job. I have the feeling that most of the information is double anyway.
