Driving to Skye

On Sunday, we met our tour group at Weverly Bridge, in the center of Edinburgh: David our guide, Mary from Canada, Linda from Tasmania, and Geraldine and Bernard from Brooklyn. On our way to Skye, we stopped by the Eilan-Donan Castle, Killin, Ben Nevis, and Glen Coe. Now that we are getting away from the city, we start seeing sheep and border collies (though we never saw any working sheep).Our bed and breakfast for our first nights was in Broadford on Skye. Every morning you get a hearty breakfast. We ate at Creelers every evening.

I saw my first border collie in Scotland in a yard in Broadford. Broadford is a small town with a grocery store, gas station, restaurant, and pub.

The Scots have a sense of humor I believe this was used in the Harry Potter movies A stop at the Clan MacLeod burial grounds
Yellow azaleas Back in the van Could this be Glen Coe? Ben Nevis? Ben Glen? Actually I think this is owned by Ian Fleming of 007 fame.
Scotland is not as green as people think it is. Back in the van again Snow covered mountains in May
We are here in lambing season They are as cute as puppies Lots of trees - unlike Skye
Its often very windy here Never a good hair day Eilan-Donan Castle - very close to Skye now. Built in the 1920's to replace a much older castle destroyed in the Jacobite Rebellion
View from our bed and breakfast. Amazing in different lights/weather. Trying to remember the names of all the mountains. The proprieter likes to garden
View from Creelers, a seafood restaurant. Luckily they were prepared for us vegetarians. Another cute b and b The first of many border collies we saw
