If you’re visiting Scotland, Isle of Skye is a must-see destination!

Skye is easier to reach now with the bridge that connects to the mainland. Also, it’s close to the increasingly popular North Coast 500 (See my NC 500 blogpost).

Day 1: From Kilmarnock to Skye. We drove through Loch Lomond, Glencoe, Fort William, Spean Bridge and Morvich. We spent the night at Dunan’s house in Flodigarry on the far north of the island.

My darling!

Day 2: We visited The Quiraing, a natural landslip on the northernmost summit of the Trotternish. We also visited Milovaig on the far west coast. The views over the cliffs are stunning and the area is renowned for its abundant wildlife (Check out Glendale website for things to see and do).
Our last destination of the day was Torrin at the foot of the Cuillin range on the shore of loch Slapin. We crossed back to the mainland and took the “long route” around the coast to Applecross to avoid driving through Bealach na Ba mountain pass at night. We spent the night at Hartfield house hostel.

Ain’t it amazing that we know more about the moon than we know about the oceans!

Day 3: We hiked to Coral beach in the morning, and around the woods in the afternoon (Checkout this website for hikes and places to visit in Applecross). We spent the night at Hartfield house hostel, which I highly recommend.

Day 4: We drove through Bealach na Ba mountain pass, one of the most dramatic roads on mainland UK. Unfortunately, it was rainy and misty which hid the views. Nonetheless, it was a great experience! Check out my video for shots from the pass.
