Day 59 – Through the Scottish Highlands

Isle of Skye, Scotland

Off to go see the great outdoors.  Off to see the highlands of Scotland!

My 3 day tour with MacBackpackers to the Isle of Skye left this morning from downtown Edinburgh.

While the Isle of Skye is the feature of this trip, today was all about travelling through the Scottish highlands up to the Isle of Skye.

Our tour guide and driver Mark told us rousing stories of Scottish history throughout the day as he navigated our little 16 seater minibus through the countryside.

We stopped in a handful of locations including the Culloden Battlefield and of course, good ol Loch Ness to see if we could spot Nessie.

We didn’t.

Anyway, rather than talk about it, here’s some photos from the day…

At just after 6:00 we arrived at our hostel in the tiny fishing village of Kyleakin at the edge of the Isle of Skye where we’ll spend the night.

Tomorrow, we’ll spend the day exploring the Isle of Skye before heading back down through the highlands again the following day back to Edinburgh.

Another beautiful day ahead…
