Today was our day trip to the Isle of Skye, one of Scotland’s most beautiful islands. We enjoyed spectacular views of the West Coast Mountains, including the Five Sisters of Kintail and Glen Shiel. Arriving on the island over the Skye Bridge, our journey took us up the East coast, through pretty little hamlets and villages with quaint cottages, experiencing breathtaking views of the Red & Black Cullin Mountains. We visited Eilean Donan Castle which was a beautifully recreated medieval castle that had been destroyed by various sieges and lovingly rebuilt by the Macrae family. We spent a few hours in the city of Portree, a charming harbour town with excellent fish and chip shops. Our journey back to Inverness took us back by Loch Ness and although we were disappointed by the lack of mythical creatures, we were treated to a rainbow that spanned the entire width of the lake.
