We got up bright and early for our drive to Tarbert in order to take the ferry to Skye. It was an overcast morning, but that just made the skies all that much more dramatic for the drive! Here are some of our parting views of Lewis and Harris.
When we arrived on Skye, we decided to drive the upper coast of the island to our B and B just outside of Portree. The drive was interesting as most of it was a single track road, but the views again were spectacular.
Once in a B and B, we settled nicely. A lovely spot for our last few days together, and appreciated all that much more as we have all caught a bug that seems to be going around. It certainly curtails plans for hiking, but the views from this home are delightful!
The next day, I decided to walk into town for some light provisioning. It was a lovely walk.
Once in Portree I bought some stuff for soup and headed back to the house to make a big pot for us all to enjoy! As it was on simmering, Dan and I headed out for a short walk.
The next morning we all got up rather slowly… I think a little R and R was in order, but perhaps after breakfast, Dan and I could manage a short walk… We chose one that was close, although it was going to be a steep climb. The Old Man of Storr is one of the more famous walks on this island.
Unfortunately we had to cancel our reservation at Three Chimneys which was for tonight as none of us felt up to a million course Michelin meal, so tonight we splurged on frozen pizza! Definitely NOT a close second, but as our good friend Alan says, “It fills the hole”! Hopefully a good nights sleep will see us in better shape tomorrow to take on our long drive south. Glenn and Gwen will be dropping us off in Glasgow where we will pick up a car and head over to Bute, while they go on to continue their trip to Ripon and beyond.
I hope to be posting from Bute, but feel the wifi may be very sketchy at our “Glamping Pod”. If not, I will post of our travels to that final Isle of our trip from Glasgow. Until then.
