Sailing up the West Coast
It's been a blustery weekend, but that has not stopped us getting nearly 500 miles covered.
Friday morning saw us leave Loch Lomond and head towards the foothills of Ben Nevis. First point of call was the Gruffalo Trail and then on to Ben Nevis. The trek to the summit of Ben Nevis is an arduous one, but happily the clouds parted and we got a stunning view at the top. Friday afternoon saw us descend from Britain's highest point and then travel to Loch Ness. A delightful evening was spent on the banks of the Loch, keeping an eye out for Nessie.
Saturday saw us travel along one of the most scenic stretches of road in Scotland. The journey from Inverness to Skye is just scintillating and one if travelled that will never be forgotten. The scenery, including cascades and waterfalls is awesome. At the end of the journey, we crossed the Kyle of Lochalsh over the Skye Bridge and spent the rest of the day exploring the Isle. It may take longer to get to than the sunny beaches of Spain, but I would recommend that the West coast of Scotland including Skye is put on a list of places to visit.
