Today was one of those dark , wet, foggy days with short periods of not so wet weather.  We crossed from Mailaig to Armadale on the Isle of Sky - a relatively short an uneventful crossing not a lot of people so early on a Sunday morning.

Once on Sky we made our way to Broadford and there we found a laundromat with one washer and one dryer working (better than none) so we decided given the rain this woud be a good time to stop.

By lunch time we were in Portree and met with Norma MacLeod who does genealogical research - we had a very interesting hour with her as she told us of the many problems associated with trying to trace our roots.  She has been working on the MacKinnon's clan for Margie Ann's brother Nelson.  She told us that MacKinnion's lived over a large area so it was quite difficult to pin down exactly where they lived but that the area around Uig was a likely location.

We then moved on to Uig and our B&B.  After getting settled in and seeing the coluds lift a bit we travelled into both sides of the Uig Glen where we have reason to believe the MacKinnon's came from.
