The Isle of Skye [Scotland]

On the third day of our Scotland trip we finally arrive on the Isle of SkyeAs expected, the island is impressive. Beautiful. Spiritual. Epic. And majestic. All rolled into one.

It is the largest and most northerly island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland and has a colourful history, including a time of Norse rule and a long period of domination by Clan MacLeod and Clan Donald. Skye is part of the Highland Council local government area and can be accessed by ferry or road bridge.

We had initially hoped to be able to have time for a spot of island hopping across the Inner Hebrides but had to admit defeat in the end and settled on visiting just the largest one: Skye.

We spent most of the day travelling and are keen to get out of the van and chill on the next camp site; Big H is also still unable to walk properly and no doubt even keener than us to stretch his injured limbs.
