Scottish Highlands: Wild and Awe Inspiring

Scottish_Highlands_2

Our adventures to the Isle of Skye began from Fort Williams, and we were happily greeted by bright sunshine with big fluffy clouds as far as the eye could see.  We were being wooed to the Isle of Skye with glimmers of sunshine, and I was simply in love.  Because when Scotland gives you a day filled with bright sunshine it is nothing shy of a treasured gift.

From Fort Williams the drive to the Isle of Skye is about 1 1/2 hours, but the drive out to the Isle of Skye was more than photo worthy so we found ourselves stopping on more than one occasion.  One point we stopped at this old stone bridge, surrounded by Scottish peaks covered in purple heathers, green mosses and grass.  It was a magical spot, I felt that I had stepped into a scene from a book or a fairy tale.  And just like Loch Lomond, it was peaceful and awe inspiring place to stop for a deep breath.

 In today’s crazy busy modern life, when I find myself in a spot with no telephone poles or signs of civilization it is important to pause and take stock simply appreciate the views.

By this point, I was falling deep in love with the Scottish Highlands and we haven’t even made it to the Isle of Skye.  I think it helps that the weather was simply outstanding for sightseening and falling in love! Our next stop on our Scottish adventures, was to the Eilean Donan Castle.
