The Isle of Skye sits very close to the coast of western Scotland and is reached via a short bridge. We had spent the night in Portree, the main town on the island and spent the day driving the main road all the way around . As we drove up the northern coast the sky was heavily overcast and foggy; almost completely obscuring the craggy mountains and the Old Man of Stor. Kilt Rock and Mealt Falls. There were always lots of fuzzy friends wandering the hills and roads.
Just around the northerly tip of Skye is the Cottage Museum.
The gorse was in bloom. You do not want to fall into a bush of this!
A short distance down the road from the Cottage Museum is Kilmuir Cemetery, burial site of Flora McDonald, the woman that disguised Bonnie Prince Charlie as a woman and rowed him to safety after the defeat of the Jacobites at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Our next stop was the Dunvegan Castle, the seat of the MacLeod of MacLeod, Chief of Clan MacLeod.
