All I can say about the Isle of Skye is that it really is absolutely beautiful. Here’s some pictures that don’t really do it justice…
The Old Man of Storr
Quiraing. This area was my favorite place of the day. I felt like I could’ve just sat there and looked around for days.
Apparently, the villagers in this area would bring livestock up in the Quiraing when the Vikings were raiding, as the plateaus weren’t visible from below, so the animals would be hidden.
Dunvegan Castle, oldest continuously inhabited castle in Scotland, home of the chiefs of Clan MacLeod for over 800 years.
The roads on Skye were pretty fun too.
My plan, after the Isle of Skye, was to spend two days in Liverpool, but after getting outside of Glasgow I decided I want to spend more time outside of cities. So I cancelled my reservations and decided to just ride until I was ready to stop, then find a place to stay.
As expected, the ride was beautiful. Weather was way better than two days ago, so I could see a lot more.
At one of the parking areas that I pulled off at to take some pictures, this guy was just hanging out, playing a bagpipe.
South of Glasgow, the landscape started to change…hills instead of mountains, but still beautiful.
At the end of the day, I found a little town off the main roads called Moniaive, ate some haggis, and drank more than enough whisky (in a pub from the 1600s, which is still crazy to me)
Nice man! Love the photos of the livestock tracks on the Scottish hillsides!
Wow, looks awesome! You’ve seen so much already and your trek has just begun!
Gramma is curious about haggis… guess I’ll be looking for a recipe!
Take care and keep us updated!
ha! let me know how it turns out!
Awesome Pat! Thank you for sharing. So glad it’s all come together for you!
Love the pics, beautiful countryside.
Your living the dream, ride on.
Skye, my favourite part of Scotland. Glad you got there but did you head over the bridge or take the old ferry?
Yeah, Skye was fantastic. On the day I went, the ferry was shut down due to bad weather, so I took the bridge
