Stick to the A87 because it passes through Kyle of Lochalsh well as over the bridge that arches across Loch Alsh, linking mainland Scotland to the Isle of Skye - one of the very most romantic and magical coming from all Scottish islands. One hour's drive from Eilean Donan will take you to Portree, the largest town on the island. That's where you'll spend the night so check into your hotel now.
Just a couple miles before the Skye Bridge, you can see Eilean Donan Castle. More than likely, you've seen photos of the before as it is just about the most iconic images of Scotland and recognized worldwide. You are able to please take a journey into every corner on this mid 13th century castle, but when you do not have time you should a minimum of stop for any picture. There is a small market at the castle by having an ATM. If you don't have any money using you, stop here! The Isle of Skye has few ATMS, and also by the time I arrived in Staffin, the only ATM was located in the closed food store. The only open restaurant in your neighborhood didn't take credit or debit cards, only cash.
Life about the Isle of Skye was idyllic, with empty beaches, craggy hills to climb, plus a population that was dominated by sheep. Surely there have been no less than 10 sheep for every person for the island. Shops full of handmade goods, fresh seafood, and robust pints of beer kept us fortified and entertained when we weren't hiking, seeing the sites, or strolling along picturesque beaches.
