“Skye, you have some big shoes to fill!” I said thinking of Glen Coe as we pulled out of Fort William and headed towards the Western Highlands. I was finding it difficult to imagine how Skye could be better than Glen Nevis and Glen Coe. But according to my Scottish friends, and the Scottish Lonely Planet, the Isle of Skye is something special.
To break up the drive, we stopped into visit Eilean Donan Castle.
Our home for the next nine days: Peinmore House, in Dalsie, a one bedroom apartment. It’s just south of Portree in the middle of the Island and should be a convenient base. It’s perfect for us, it has a little kitchen and even a piano. Even the wifi is a decent speed. We bubbled with happiness when we discovered the bed is a Temper mattress.
“Let’s stay here for a year!”
As soon as we had moved in our luggage, David headed for the kitchen and cooked us a delicious roast chicken dinner. Ah home cooking at last!
Nothing other than a day spent at ‘home’ planned for tomorrow.
