Sorry for the delay. No interwebs last night. We can’t live in Scotland. They have terrible internets. Lol Kegan is calling it “free range wifi”- if you find it and can catch it, you can use it. Haha
Today was a day of great Landscapes as we made our way across the highlands to the Isle of Skye. Sorry if the photos are all jumbled… You can figure out where they go. No idea why this keeps happening.
Our first stop was Rogie Falls.
I thought this one was frame worthy
Tons of great sites across the countryside today.
We found this great lodge in the middle advertising coffee. A new couple just bought it and is turning it into a hotel. It used to be an old hunting lodge and it had the greatest “old Scotland” character. I could just picture some old haggard men gathered drinking whiskey after a long fox hunt in here. And their coffee was awesome. If we ever come back- we’ll stay here for sure.
Of course, we met more of the locals today. They pretty much have the right of way on the west coast of Scotland. Lol
We even met NEW locals I wasn’t familiar with before today. Yaks! And we got up close and personal with a couple. So docile. I wanted to pet one. Lol
We are staying in Sligachan tonight, or as locals call it, “The Slig”. We ate at the hotel restaurant. I had the Haggis and the lamb shank. Kegan had the Barbary Duck and I had the Sticky Toffee Pudding…not so much because I wanted it as much as after that meal at Johnshaven, I needed to know if all Sticky Toffee Pudding was that good or if it was just that restaurant 🙂 now don’t get me wrong, I rarely find a reason to ever skip dessert lol…but we didn’t even finish this one. That other place was just that good.
We then sat in the den with a real peat fire crackling and drank a local Talisker Skye scotch. To me and my non-refined Scotch palette it tasted very spicy on the front, very smokey in the mouth and a nice rubbing alcohol finish. Lol Kegan rolled his eyes at me.
Also, I have had anonymous requests for more Norah. And more cowbell… Although I’m not sure how to accomplish the second… So- for your viewing pleasure- more Norah. 🙂
And more landscapes:
We’re calling this “Lake Titticacca” lol (hehe….we’re all 12 year old boys)
Tomorrow we will sight-see around the Isle of Skye….just a lot more landscape and nature photos 🙂 if we are lucky, we might be able to see the Aurora Borealis tomorrow night. Fingers crossed for a clear sky!
