Just before we went over the Skye bridge we stopped off at the most 'romantic castle of Scotland', the Eilean Donan castle. Here we wandered inside, unfortunately they didn't allow for photography inside, here we learnt about the McRae family and its history. This castle had been destroyed and rebuilt several times, the most recent being in the 1930s. Walking out again we came across our first bagpiper busker, hhmmmm still don't know if it was a guy or a girl playing.
From here we carried on to Skye. This took us over a lovely bridge at the Kyle of Lochalsh. The Isle of Skye is one of the Islands off the coast of the mainland. It had some spectacular scenery and cliffs. After driving all the way round the north tip of the island, we stopped in Portee on the way back for some fish and chips. From here we started the long drive home. We ended up getting home around 11pm, which rounded off three very busy days with Lynda.
