Scotland Day 8: Skye North – Uig
A short and relaxing drive north to the ferry port of Uig. On our return journey we noticed the mountains were on fire…
Scotland Day 7: Castletown to Portree
Before a long drive across the Highlands to the Isle of Skye we stopped to take some photos of the village we have been staying for the last few days. And stopped again for a Midge Bite.
Scotland Day 6: Durness, Smoo & Tongue
Durness beach and Smooth caves turned out to be as good as expected and well worth a visit. I just hope that if you visit this fabulous area you learn the etiquette of driving along single-track roads.
Scotland Day 5: Dunnet Head & Keiss
I have walked on the land at the most northerly point of Britain. That feels like quite an achievement, and it was worth the winding track to get there.
Scotland Day 4: Buckie to Thurso
North of Inverness is the most stunning scenery we have yet scene in Scotland – and that is saying something. We stopped on the way at an Eden-like idyll just before Golspie, which was itself a beautiful town with varied and beautiful architecture.
Scotland Day 3 part 2: Findhorn & Lossiemouth
Findhorn – or at least the small section we were able to get to – did not live up to expectations which left time to visit the lighthouse and museum at Covesea, only to find that both were closed.
Scotland Day 3: Review: The Harbour Lights Cafe, Lossiemouth
A highly recommended eatery in a lovely building and a beautiful location. This is hard to beat.
Scotland Day 3 part 1: Bow Fiddle Rock @ Portknockie
Bow Fiddle Rock has been photographed many times; we just had to have some that we could call our own. Portknockie itself is very pleasant though, and I regret not taking a few snaps of the village itself.
