Isle of Skye Trip

Two days ago we headed with a hired guide to the Isle of Skye. From Inverness, it’s about 113mi and 2.5h to Portree, one of the major cities on the island. We went further north from there, but that’s a good waypoint if you’re looking it up on a map.

The place is just stunning. I mean – just look at this waterfall near Loch Leathan and the Old Man of Storr:

A multi-stage waterfall, the rocks around it covered in grass and moss. A large stone dominates the foreground.
The Storr from the northeast, with the Old Man of Storr visible to the left of the main peak. Grass fills the midground, with a few sheep grazing.

We also drove to the Fairy Glen on the isle, but didn’t have the stamina for the walk. Still got some beautiful shots like this:

Heading toward the Fairy Glen. Mounds and hills form the background, with tall grasses extending toward the viewer.

Lunch was at a cafe in Portree which was also Skye’s only cinema.

Crossposted all over the place. If you comment on Facebook or the DW feed we may not see them, but @ing telophase or myrialux via Twitter or commenting on the regular DW account, Flickr, and the actual blog should get to us. Or you could just email to be absolutely sure we get it.
