The road to Skye and back

I haven’t yet blogged about the two days spent in Skye last week. So here goes.

PhilosophyI’ve visited Kilmuir, north of Uig, many times over the years but only last week made it to one of the most unique and unusual charms of the area, if not the whole island.

Macurdie’s Exhibition is a quirky museum, one local man’s tribute to off-beat humour, corny puns and a desire to make something of the bits and pieces found around the croft that would otherwise be chucked out or left to the elements.

It’s a highly amusing place and well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

On the way back, Nicole and I did something I’d never done in my life despite countless trips along the A87 – stop off to visit Eilean Donan Castle.

It’s arguably Scotland’s most famous and iconic castle, used in films including Highlander and Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and has an interesting history.

Sadly we visited at exactly the same time as a massive French coach party so the place was packed, and its beautiful setting means it’s a slightly cliched place to photograph, but I managed get a few half-decent shots nevertheless.
