Trip Diary – April/May 2017 – Day 44 – Inverness to Isle of Skye

We wanted to visit at least one island while we were here, and we chose Skye because it was one of the largest. Big mistake! We found out the Outer Hebrides have better weather, by far, than Skye, which has the nickname “Cloud Isle.” We found that out was a good name. We woke up to rain in the morning on the Isle, and drove higher and higher into more dense clouds. Barely able to see a few hundred feet in front of us, we decided to cut our loop trip short and return to Inverness.

As we left the Isle, we stopped at Eilean Donan Castle, a 13th Century stronghold on the shoreline, accessible only by an easily-defensible bridge.

Back to Inverness to prepare to find Nessie tomorrow!!
