Where next: A few days on Skye

Phil and I have booked ourselves a long weekend in Skye (An t-Eilean Sgitheanach or Eilean a’ Cheò), taking the Caledonian Sleeper from London to Fort William (An Gearasdan) and back, hiring a car from Practical Rental – Fort William to get us to (and around) Skye, possibly via the Glenelg Skye Ferry route.

We’re staying at Shorefield House in the village of Edinbane (An t-Aodann Bàn) in the northwest of the island.

As well as exploring the Waternish (Bhatairnis / Vaternish) peninsula, I imagine we’ll be tootling around Dunvegan Castle and Loch, visiting Portree and indulging in some of the other recommended Things to Do in Skye, and weather permitting we’ll be stretching our legs and lungs with one or more of the top ten Skye walks.

We’ll wave across the water to Lower Diabaig too.

Can’t wait!
