Good Afternoon, here I am back again have switched my alerts back on so I will be hearing all your news soon. We had a great holiday and surprisingly enough the weather on the whole was good very mild lots of sunshine and only a little rain which for Skye was unusual. Our house was super all mod cons including a dish washer. That is a first for me, having one at home I always think It’s strange having to do dishes on holiday however on with the tale…………..
We left home about 9-30am on the Saturday morning and as it was a good morning decided to take the scenic route which is only 6 miles further but not such a fast route. We headed for Glen Eagles first and met on the road a very old lady with her three friends having a day away at 30 mph, on this road there is just nowhere to pass safely so we just had to sit behind her for about 12 miles eventually the road straightened out and we managed to get passed, we proceeded to Creiff and then Lochearn, Glenogle and Crainlarich and onward to Glencoe. The weather did close in a bit as the mountains in this part of Scotland are very high and wild. After a picnic lunch we headed for Fort William that’s the little town at the foot of Ben Nevis (Britain’s highest mountain) it was a bit shrouded in mist and the photos were not great but I did my best. Stuart and I have been travelling our country all our lives and I have never seen traffic like we had today it was so busy it was unbelievable. Once we exited Glencoe it quietened down a bit and the rest of our journey up to Glen Garry and Glen Morrison to Loch Duich past Eilean Donan castle and onward to the Kyle of Lochalsh. Once we were over the bridge it was much quieter and we made good time in the sunshine up to Portee the main town on the Island more of that later too. We were glad to see our house and were warmly welcomed by the owners Joyce and Brian. Will stop there today and continue later. Till next time Love.
