Skye

We just got back from a really nice road trip to Skye. Our friend John drove up from England and stayed with us for a night and then we headed north and stayed at a hostel in Portree for three nights. Christian met John in Stockholm and he was there for the reunion that we attended earlier in the summer.

John’s trusty vehicle parked for a break at Loch Lomond.

Approaching Glencoe. The soundtrack was Iron and Wine and Bon Iver.

Here’s what I was looking at
We went past this castle on our way to the bridge to Skye.

This is Portree, not far from our hostel (which I forgot to take a picture of).

John drove us all around Skye on these crazy single-track roads.

I really liked it here. It would’ve been nice to go for a hike, but there wasn’t time… we were on our way to the ferry from Uig to Tarbert.

It was sunny and beautiful all day, so we sat on the ferry to Tarbert and soaked it in. We didn’t get off though.

The next day we went on a distillery tour. Christian bought a nice bottle of the distiller's edition. No pictures inside though unfortunately.

This is the view from a pub nearby where we had lunch. Excellent fresh food.
