Another Perfect Day on the Isle of Skye
No words can describe what I have seen while on holiday in Scotland. No view is a bad photo opportunity. The country is all that one can imagine and more.
Posting each day is impossible for me. Bedtime comes early just to be ready for another day.
The above photo is of Kilt Rock...look to the far end and you can see the "folds of a kilt". The water fall is spectacular. I videoed the falls and will post it at a later time. You can see how bright the sun was on that day.
Continuing on a narrow single-lane road, we stopped at Quiraing, located on a landslip on the eastern face of Meall na Suiramach. This is the northernmost summit of the Trotternish Ridge on the Isle of Skye.
If you would like to read more about it, click HERE.
The elevation here is 1,781. The narrow road, in the background, is the one we traveled on to reach this spot.
As I climbed to the highest spot, over the ridge came this Scotsman, dressed in a kilt....taking his daily walk. We stood together for awhile, talking about the beauty of it all...then he walked on.
Look closely and you can see the mountains of Wester Ross on the mainland of Scotland.
If you have not been to Scotland, I say it is about time you come.
