Skye Bridge

More Scotland coming your way.

On our second day in the highlands of Scotland, we drove west out to the Isle of Skye. The landscape here is completely different from the rest of Scotland. Ever seen those "Aerial Tour of Scotland" type videos that show the jagged and jutting coastlines? Skye is it. I'll post more photos of Skye as I continue the tour.

This is the Skye Bridge, which connects mainland Scotland with the island. We stopped here for dinner before heading back to Loch Ness. We got a beautiful sunset the whole time we ate dinner (since sunsets last about three hours this time of year).

Of course one of the highlights of Skye for me was going to the Talisker whisky distillery, the only distillery on the island. Good whisky.

Beautiful place.
