You can’t go to Scotland without having a look at Loch Ness. So we did.
Cows on the beach. Yeah, right. As if. Left my high hopes in the car when we start the descent to Coral beach.
Disappointing… I envisioned a vast terrain full of action, hundreds of real Scottish men in kilts, bagpipe players every other corner, highland dancers by the multiple dozens, under a blue sky… Nothing of the above. To start off it was pouring and cold. My camera was still not functioning correctly […]
I read mixed reviews on the Fairy Glen on the Isle of Skye. I don’t understand. I find it very lovely here, with the glowing pointy hills, dotted with sheep that draw patterns in the grass by using the same routes again and again. Clearly the sheep are the kings here, on select vantage points […]
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!
