Scotland Circle Tour – Day 5
I woke up to the pitter-patter of rain on my window. So I thought I would hit the shower to start the day. In this B&B, I have a private bathroom but it is located down the hall from my bedroom. Went to turn on the shower and to my surprise, there was none, only a bathtub – WTF. So I did a navy style shower. I then searched for my towel only to remember that they were put in my bedroom – WTF. Not a great start to the day. At breakfast, I met 2 young guys from Germany who were doing some hiking on the Isle of Skye.
My host assured me that there was an 80% chance of the sky clearing today. Good thing as I was about to rename this place to the Isle of Rain. By about 13:00 the sun did shine and I was able to see a few places before I leave tomorrow.
Pictures from road pullover locations on the island.
Dunvegan Castle. Only took pictures from the road but did not enter. Margo, maybe Jamie is hiding here.
These are from a place called Quiraing.
These are from a place called The Fairy Pools. Can you see any fairies? Neither can I.
I did try to hike up to a famous place called Old Man of Storr but got rained out 3/4 of the way to the top. This was one of the sites I really wanted to see. At least I know all my raingear works pretty well.
