Isle of SkyeWe are on our way to the Isle of Skye today. The map on the left is indicative of some of the places we had already visited.

Went shopping in Ullapool and bought some expensive stuff for the folks back home.

Look at this Google map for the route we followed from Ullapool to the Isle of Skye.

Ullapool to the Isle of Skye

Travelled down through some hairy roads (single track) and it rained all day. It looks like a huge distance but it is not when compared to some of the distances we travel in WA. The map is quite good because it shows you some of the places we visited. Stopped and look at a castle that Sandra visited as a girl. Go here for the website – eilean donan castleEilean Donan Castle

Stayed overnight at Givendale Guest House (website –, Portree, Isle of Sky. Did not like it at all. The picture of the bedroom in the home page of the website is the room we had – the only one in the guesthouse with an ensuite.

The weather is not good at the Isle of Skye. I woke up feeling down again and told Sandra that I had seen enough scenery. I think that she is disappointed with me but that is the way it is. You sometimes need to call a halt to what you are seeing and gather yourself and start again.

We are on our way to Fort William.
