Isle of Skye: Day 2

Yesterday we took the whole day to drive around and see as much of Skye as possible. We started from our village and went over to Broadford. From there we drove past the Cullin Hills and into Portree. After Portree, we made our way around the Trotternish Peninsula. Cutting back through Portree we headed out to Dunvegan. What a day! But honestly, some of the most beautiful scenery. The pictures don't do it half justice.

Let's start with this picture. This is what most of the road I was driving looked like. Single track, curvy and hilly.

Not to mention the sheep. At least this was 2 lane but it wasn't always the case. You know have we have warning signs for deer "zones" they have them for sheep and cows. And they mean it!

View from our drive on Skye. Gorgeous huh!

Village of Uig. This place is neat b/c you can still find examples of crofting.

The Isle of Skye Museum has preserved some old thatched cottages from the 19th century.

This ram would bounce around to keep the little ones in check. We apparently disturbed them while walking in their grass to get to some castle ruins.

Great view of what's called Kilt Rock.

And this looks back towards a formation called Old Man Storr.

Lovely rainbow waiting for us when we arrived back in Kyleakin that evening.
