Our four headed search party is ready for it. The tide is mid way and on its way to low. We are supposed to see them now on Staffin Beach: the dinosaur tracks. Bring it on!
After a very wet morning and an afternoon of drying and warming up, the clouds are opening up above the Isle of Skye. Time to explore Trotternish a bit further.
Arrived at Isle of Skye yesterday. Good weather then but too tired to do anything anymore. We should have … . Today nothing to see beyond a certain distance, everything is gray and covered in a blanket of clouds. No views, only shades of gray. Maybe if we get closer to the top?
Driving this last stretch on the main land between Fort William and Mallaigh was timed to the minute. I had calculated at what moment the Jacobite train would pass the Glenfinnan Bridge. And we didn’t have spare time to wait for the next one, as our car ferry would not wait for us in Mallaigh.
Real hard climb… not. We took the gondola up. Found the Nevis Range Mountain Experience easily. We took the time to pass by the boys and ladies room. What a surprise when I got out of the little room.
Next stop on our all day boat trip: Fingal’s cave at Staffa Island. Another item on my bucket list. Check!
We booked a boat trip to Lunga and Staffa isles near the Isle of Mull. In order to understand my state of mind, I need to tell you the following.
This real first day of the trip – and not the arriving day which in my mind is always a half, non productive day – took some time and compromises.
We didn’t plan much time here in Edinburgh as a result of some compromises. The idea was to explore Victoria Street and the Royal mile and then go for sunset at Calton hill. Half way Victoria Street, the kids got hungry, or better were in need of sugar.
Before even getting on the plane to Edinburgh we got our doses of stress and annoyance.
