I can't believe that it's only Wednesday - it feels like we have been here much longer. After calling in at the Skye Quilt Studio, where I bought some fat quarters to sew some project bags, we headed up to the north of the island again. We stopped off for lunch at the Stein Inn, the oldest pub on Skye. I had a Scottish ploughman's, which was really tasty .....
and Mr JK had haggis. Ugh! Not my kind of meal at all!!
We spent the rest of the day driving around the Trotternish peninsula, stopping periodically to take in the views. The visibility was great and you could see the outer Hebrides in the distance really clearly.
Driving around the coast we came across lots of little piles of stones and rocks. There were easily one hundred there, I have no idea why! Please enlighten me if you know!
The ferry had just left Uig as we approached. It sails to Harris and North Uist in the Outer Hebrides. I can't imagine what it must be like to live somewhere so remote. Mr JK and I talked about what we would miss. Although neither of us are great shoppers, we would miss being so far away from things like the theatre. I think these islands are wonderful places to visit for a week or so, but not to live permanently.
Tomorrow we are going to head down to the south of the island, should be good! xxx
