We got there at sunset.
After a long drive through some breathtaking landscapes, Skye had welcomed us with some beautiful skies.
We stayed at Kyleakin, a beautiful village situated very close to the bridge.
I had been to Skye before and was familiar with some of the places but this was the first time I would be spending some days there.
The plan for this trip had been a bit spontaneous and the next few days were going to be really interesting.
The hike up to the Old Man of Storr was quite possibly the windiest one I’ve ever done.
Beautiful Staffin Beach.
At the start of the amazing Quiraing walk.
The Fairy Pools, considered one of the most “magical” places in Scotland.
And did we mention the roads?
It was a cold Sunday morning in February, well before sunrise and the four of us were at Holyrood Park, looking up towards our destination. Instead of staying home within the warmth of our beds, we had decided to hike up Arthur’s Seat to try and catch the sunrise over Edinburgh.
I had been thinking of doing this for a while and when I floated the idea to my friends, I found three other souls who were willing to accompany me on this “adventure”.
As it was still quite dark, we were concerned about the visibility and walking up the path in frosty conditions. The weather is always a bit of a gamble and despite the fact that there was a hint of rain in the air, the sky looked to be clearing up. As we set off, I did think whether all this effort would be worth it. Needless to say, this being Scotland, we got more than we bargained for, including a beautiful rainbow over the city.
Totally worth it, don’t you think?
