In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, is the isle of Skye meant to be Scotland? The map looks a lot like it and the name kind of hints. The people here sound like they are speaking some kind of Gaelic language but the NPCs don’t have a normal Scottish accent. When Ireland and France both had people who sounded like the native speakers, it has me doubting whether it is dispite there being evidence to suggest it is.
It’s hard to say, the map is sort of like Scotland and the map design has lots of rocky highlands but as you said, they did a good job with Ireland and France to make it seem authentic. Maybe it is based on Scotland but due to it not being exactly like it, they chose to name it different and remove any direct connection?
