Famous towns

Left Portree after a visit to the harbour.
We did a circut of Skye this morning, travelling towards Staffin, about 16 miles north of Portree. Such spectacular scenery. Beautiful Lealt Falls and looked at the old diatomite works in the Lealt Valley. Then on to Kilt Rocks, just spectacular. We travelled on through the Quiraing, one of the most dramatic areas of geological formations on Skye. Passed Duntulm Castle in the distance, apparently abandoned around 1730 by the MacDonalds.

Uig is a delightful little village on Trotternish, the most northern part of Skye. There are ferries from here to the Western Isles. Passed this funny cottage with rocks to hold the roof on.

More highland cattle!! Love them!! finished the circut back at Portree then straight off the island to Plockton, a popular tourist resort, especially because the TV series Hamish Macbeth, starring Robert Carlyle, was filmed there.
Finished this epic day at Loch Ness!
