Introduced Scottish Rachel at our B&B to Vegemite on toast. It didn't go well.
Went to Mealt Falls at Kilt Rock last night just before bedtime. It was a beautiful evening and dead quiet (apart from the sound of the waterfall) but the place was full of midges (no surprises there really). I had to leave after 15 minutes before the little blighters picked my bones clean.
Had a drive up around the Quairang and a bit of a walk before the weather started to turn from blue skies with a bit of cloud to cloudy with rain showers.
The Skye Museum of Island Life at Kilmuir popped up just before the rain started so we had a wander around the cottages. The museum space is small so we were back on the road again half an hour later.
About an hour’s drive away is Dunvegan Castle - the oldest continuously inhabited castle in Scotland. This is where the MacLeod’s still hang out and is yet another place where you can’t photograph anything inside.
The grounds are nice.
Would we go to the Fairy Pools at Glen Brittle? They sounded pretty cool so, sure - why not? But first we should stop and admire Loch Harport before the next rain shower.
We drove on...and the rain showers got closer together. And then the showers became constant drizzle which turned into a white out. By the time we reached Glen Brittle, most of the landscape was shrouded in white fog. We parked the car near the Fairy Pools and couldn't see across the road let alone the pathway to the pools! So we decided it must be time for dinner.
