I think it was written by Bob Halfin and recorded by Calum Kennedy.

I don't know where you live but you could try Biggar's in Glasgow. They have a web site www.biggars.co.uk and an email with your requirements would bring an answer.

I don't think Calum ever made that much in royalties!

AMG - All Music Guide lists 2 recordings of SKYLINE OF SKYE:

Bill & Ray, "Tartan Lads of Bonnie Scotland," Scotdisc CD 540, 1995.
Sung by Kathie Kay on various-artists' "This Is Scotland, Vol. 2," Scotdisc CD 354, 1995.

I found another here:

Sung by Calum Kennedy in 1958, on the various-artists compilation "The World of Scotland," Decca 466353, 1999.

This last one is still in print and being offered at a reasonable price.

Authorship is attributed to Heneker & Ross.

THE SKYLINE OF SKYE
Written by David Heneker and David Ross ©1959
As sung by Calum Kennedy on "The World of Scotland" (1999)

The islands are calling me back home again
And I long for the skyline of Skye.
A lassie is waiting, sweet flow'r of the glen,
'Neath the beautiful skyline of Skye.
I left her one springtime; oh, I loved her so!
The blue mountains whispered, "You're foolish to go."
As I sailed with the tide, something died here inside.
How I cried for the skyline of Skye!

In mem'ry I'm hearing the ghost of her tune
That keeps haunting my heart with a sigh.
It tells of her parting that sad afternoon.
It's the song of the skyline of Skye.
The road to the islands comes down to the sea,
And that's where my love will be waiting for me,
And together we'll stay till we're both old and grey
'Neath the beautiful skyline of Skye.

[Also sung by Clifford Hughes on "A Song for You" (1987) and by Alexander Morrison on "Scottish Collection" (1996).]
