May 16, 2018 - Isle of Skye

Slightly later start today, which is very nice I have to say! Travelling over the sea to Skye! Then heading down the east coast of Scotland past Dunrobin Castle then cutting across the centre inland, kind of interesting driving a single goats track through the forest and heather so very picturesque!! We stopped in a little fishing village called Ullapool on the West coast on our way to Loch Carron. Off now over the bridge across the Atlantic Ocean to Skye.. we have spent the afternoon travelling around the Isle of Skye and listening to...

May 4, 2015 - Drive to Isle of Skye

It was a long drive to Skye from our cabin but the beautiful views made it worthwhile. The Isle of Skye is the largest and most northerly large island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. The island has been occupied since the 8000 BC and its history includes a time of Norse rule and a long period of domination by Clan MacLeod and Clan Donald. We traveled from the mainland to the isle by car ferry; drove extremely narrow roads to the first town where we had a delicious gourmet lunch.

Sep 26, 2013 - Beautiful Skye

WOW! What a day. We woke to sunshine streaming through our window. At our present b & b we fill in a paper each night with our breakfast desires. Jim had scrambled egg, bacon, and porridge and Karen had a fried egg with bacon and porridge. We also had fresh fruit and toast. We were joined for breakfast by two French girls making the loop around Scotland the opposite way of us. The breakfast table is in the kitchen so Kate and Roy were able to share in our conversation. The kitchen, like our room, is rather small. To add interest, the...

Sep 17, 2010 - Nessie and the sheep farm

Up early this morning for a breakfast of cold cuts, brie cheese, toast and haggis! I thought haggis was quite tasty, nice soft meaty taste with a bit of spice. I’ll definitely eat it again if I get the opportunity. After breakfast Andrew and I took a stroll down the street to take some photos. It was very cold and rainy and I felt like I was in some spooky ghost town. Onto the bus and to our first stop, Portree, in The Isle Of Skye. We walked up a hill and saw some wild rabbits. We then found a small lookout and walked up, where we had...

Sep 16, 2010 - Loch Lomond

This morning we had a slightly earlier wake-up call at 6am. We had our usual breakfast which was no different to the English breakfast, I was hoping for something with a bit more Scottish flair. Andrew and I took a short stroll down the street after breakfast. We wanted to check out the casino but it was closed, which wasn’t that unusual, but Crown Casino is open 24 hours which is why we checked. We bought some drinks from a local convenience store and were confronted by a rambling pregnant Scotswoman asking for money for the bus down the...

Aug 6, 2008 - Western Highlands and the Isle of Skye (6th - 8th Aug 2008)

We decided to head north for a bit and then drive back down the west coast to the Isle of Skye. We circled a number of small towns along the West Coast that we intended to drive through, used Google Maps to discover it would take about 6 hours and then set off from Inverness North through Dingwall up almost all the way to Ullapool before heading West to Aultbea and then South along the coast road through Gailoch, Kinlochewe, Sheildiag, Applecross, Lochcarton, Attadale, and Kyle of Lochalsh where we crossed over the Bridge to the Isle of...
