Eilean a Cheo - Skye - Isle of Mists

Skye isn't merely beautiful, it's awesome, as my pal Ron Turnbull says. Skye is truly amazing, from the magnificent Cuillins viewed from Glen Brittle, to the bays and harbours along the coast from the bridge, to Portree (Port an Righ - King's Port), with the scattered farmsteads and homesteads around the village of Broadford, tiny against the magnificent backdrop of the mountains.

All too soon, we had to leave the Isle of Mists - we were luckily enough to be there when the sky was clear blue and the tops of all the highest peaks could be clearly seen from below.

We were glad to have had the chance to see this beautiful island, and to meet some of its people. We will return.
