Isle of Skye, Scotland

Isle of Skye, Scotland

This morning I woke up with a boomer headache. So after a late start, we hit the road around noon.

We thought the Isle of Skye was a tourist haven, but instead, we realized it was more of a retiree and hiker haven. However, we made the best of it.

So after a quick stop in Portree, we discover the old Scottish huts.

Next off was a fast run after a few long haired highland sheep for a photo.  Why do all the animals seem to have long hair – we asked the same thing just yesterday after ‘hairy cattle’ and ‘hairy goats’.

We became disoriented and ended up going up the left side of the top of the island instead of the right, but the view over the town was awesome so we didn’t mind a bit.  We headed to a mansion that was now a hotel.  We had a bit of silliness outside and then headed in.

We really enjoyed our afternoon tea and ended up chatting with a couple of other travelers which was great too.

We then headed out for a quick walk around but it was getting late, and by now all 3 of us seemed to have headaches.

Next stop was the amazing volcanic rocks – Kilt Rocks.  If you look behind the waterfall you will see the tartan effect of the vertical and horizontal lines in the rock.

Old Man of Storr was next – can you see his face?

It seemed like forever to drive back to our base of Kyleakin but we were finally there.

But once we were there we were so glad to see the water – the boats were colorful against the mirrored water.

The end of a long day and we headed back to cook dinner at Saucy Mary’s Lodge.

Tomorrow is our last day in Scotland.  We knew it would be fast, but this was just so fast!
