Isle of Skye

A friend of mine kindly reminded me that my blog needed updating, she said "I'm getting fed up with seeing the same post", and she's right! I've been so busy that I just haven't had a chance to keep it updated lately, so thanks to Gloria, here I am - updating!

I had a great opportunity of visiting the Isle of Skye over the weekend, I was invited to attend the Celebration of Life event held at Portree Community Hall. We haven't visited the island before and was blown away by its beauty. The photo above is the famous Eilean Donan Castle, situated near Dornie. We past this castle on the way, it was a spectacular visit to the castle. We were on the way home from Skye and took a break to walk around and take photos.

The scenery on the way to Skye was simply stunning, as you can see from these photos. Luckily the weather was great too.The photo above is Portree Harbour

This is the view from the newly built Skye Bridge

Some of the exhibitors stayed at the same hotel in Portree and we met up for dinner Saturday night. We had a lovely meal at the Caledonian Hotel and then had drinks until the small hours!! Needless to say, I was a little delicate at the breakfast table!

While I was working at the event on Sunday, hubby and daughter set off to the harbour and boarded Stardust for a wildlife trip around the island. They were lucky enough to see some Sea Eagles (wing span 6-8 feet and according to my daughter "they were massive"), a seal and a salmon farm, where the fish were diving out of the water. I was rather jealous I missed out on this, but we will visit again one day as a long weekend.
