The Island of Skye

We had one more night in Finsbay and then had a truly harrowing drive in the dark on that daring C road to get to the ferry by 7:00 for the trip over to the Island of Skye.

I’m getting some insight about what kind of tour this would be and this simplifies our travels.

Given the condition of the roads I’m thankful.

We mostly explored the southern peninsula of Skye looking for accommodation for 24 people. I can see the itinerary very differently now having travelled there.

We spent the night in a B&B at Drumbuie (no – not Drambuie!) and drove on next morning to Plockton – a truly charming place. The planned tour itinerary in my mind changed again  As we drove up the western mainland coast the scenery became more and more beautiful and dramatic – fabulous sandy beaches, mountains with exquisite lines – and more and more sheep.
