On day 2 we decided to drive to Skye which was a long round trip but the roads were so stunning the journey became one of our highlights. Here are some snaps from the car window!
On our way to Skye, we stopped off at Eilean Donan Castle – a stunning 13th Century castle on an island at the point where three lochs meet, with our first glimpse of Skye in the distance.
In the time it took us to eat some shortbread and have a coffee the weather had completely changed, so I headed out with my camera to capture the castle in a different light.
Then it was off to Skye, and our destination was The Old Man of Storr. The walk up to the Old Man starts off as a gently sloping path but soon turns into a bit of a climb up some large rocks and boulders. I have to admit it was trickier than I had expected and in true Lily-style I managed to fall over in a big pile of mud while also hitting my arm on a rock. But we carried on and were treated to some amazing views on the way. You could climb even higher but we settled to stop at the foot of the Old Man and it was one of the highlights of our trip.
While up near the Old Man I also took some macro shots of some moss!
The next post is coming soon with photos from day 3, when we visited the Cairngorms, Fort George and even spotted a red squirrel.
