Sunset over the Western Isles. A beautiful farewell from Skye.
A final afternoon reading by the window
The beach by our black house was very breezy. Empty lobster pots waited beside old boats - Aaron says Scottish lobster is the best in the world
A visit to the fairy glen at Uig - lots of conical hills and very green - almost luminous - colours.
Stopped for lunch at an Arts Cafe - in actuality a couple's living room converted for the Summer tourist trade. Lovely food though and we bought a candle
Sheep based traffic jam
I went for a run...and really discovered the hills.

So many sheep...
Stopped off for a visit but didn't even make it halfway through the tour due to lightheadedness. Still it's a very pretty location

Looking down the coast from Neith point - the westernmost tip of Skye - as the clouds rolled in
We sampled some very local and excellently cooked food at The Three Chimneys. Scallops, langoustine and crab from the loch outside the restaurant, lamb, pork and vegetables from the farm in the next village. Inspiringly good food.

Aaron tackles a plate of local langoustines at the Stein Inn - the oldest pub on Skye
17 April 2017
Walking the Quirang - suitably terrifying for me but apparently only classed as a moderate hike
We stopped off at Kilt Rock for a view over to the highlands
16 April 2017
Arrived at our cottage in Skye! It's beautiful but there's no wifi or 3G for me. Aaron can get a slight signal outside in the garden though
Eirean Doren castle - the star of so many movies - near Kyle of Lockash
15 April 2017
Stopped for a break in Cairngorm coffee in Edinburgh
14 April 2017
Walking on the headland at Newton the morning after the wedding with Wendy and Stan
