Saturday 9 September over the bridge to Skye

Next morning we set off for Skye!  Stopped for coffee at the most beautiful setting of Eilean Donon Castle at Dornie.

Next…. Over bridge to Skye… many appropriate traveling songs were played to us on the bus but not this one, strangely enough.

Portree for lunch on Skye – lovely little harbour town, beautiful weather.

Weather then changed as we drove up to Staffin. We stretched our legs at cliff edge and looked out across the North Sea – would have been beautiful on a clear day. There was a lone piper in his kilt. You could see Kilt rock – a rock formation that looked like a kilt.

As we headed back down, we caught a glimpse of the Old Man of Storr in the mist and got some quite atmospheric photos.


As we returned through Portree the weather here was still fine and clear and this continued through to Kyleakin where we were to spend the night at the Saucy Mary Lodge.


Our room was at the top (up 2 flights of stairs) at the front overlooking the sea and the new bridge. Well worth the stair climb for the view.

We decided to eat at the restaurant opposite but not before a good walk and a climb up to the old castle ruin, where we enjoyed a beautiful view at sunset.

We then returned to the restaurant for a fabulous seafood platter with a bottle of Pinot Grigio.
