An Amazing Day on Skye

Today we started seeing Skye. There’s a reason there are so many well known tunes related to this area. With so much to see it was hard to remember to put the camera down and really look around. And looking around is a must…

We’ll spend some time here, so you’ll see waterfalls, and Kilt Rock

Falls at Kilt Rock

as well as picturesque Port Righ (Portree)

Port Righ is a pretty little place

From Port Righ, we continued on including see some amazing scenary (like the bridge at Sligachan) and incredible history at the Museum of Island Life and Flora McDonald's final resting place as well as Duntulm Castle (originally seat of the McLeod and later of the McDonald) and Dunvegan Castle, known as the Jewel of the McLeod.

At the end of the day we return to McKinnon Lodge, our accomodation for the evening.  I was really taken with our Hosts Iain and Carol Tongs who made us very welcome in their lovely lodge.  I was in the Lindsey room, and really enjoyed the ambience of my tartan based decor.  The Lodge was a wonderful place to rest before our next day!
