I've finally gotten round to sorting the photos from last weekends trip to Skye. Skye has always been on my list of places I wanted to visit, and it's an experience to visit the island. I don't think I've ever been in a place that's felt as remote and cut off, you're lucky to get a mobile signal never mind any data signal . Was good for a change, although luckily there was some wifi in the hotel (satellite internet)!
The drive up to Skye is good in itself winding through the mountains of Glencoe and Fort William, although it was quite foggy in places. Whilst on Skye we visited the fairy pools which have to be the clearest water I've ever seen, and had to resist the temptation to jump in though as I think I may have ended up with hypothermia! The scenery on Skye itself is quite spectacular, and I could have happily spent all day driving / walking about and just admiring the place. I'll definitely be looking to go back, perhaps in the summer when it's a bit warmer and can jump in the water!
On the way back we stopped off at Eilean Donan Castle. Next to the village of Dornie, and not too far from the Skye bridge, the castle is built on a small island where Loch Duich, Loch Long and Loch Alsh and meet. The castle is apparently the most photographed castle in Scotland, might even have been Britain. Very picturesque castle!
If you ever get the chance to visit then I would highly recommend it... unless of course you aren't really in to the outdoors!
