Loch Dunvegan Scotland

This day we set out to explore the North West of Skye and started with Loch Dunvegan. It's a peaceful area, and you may consider walking up to the Coral Beaches of Claigan (we did not find this spot, though) and visiting Dunvegan Castle, which is home to the MacLeods since the 13th century. But beware - the castle charges a hefty entrance fee!

Neist Point Lighthouse Skye

You definitely should visit Neist Point Lighthouse at the most western tip of Skye at the end of B884. It was built in 1909 and quite difficult to access: you get there after passing two very steep steps. You should take your time (or be physically very fit) when you plan to go there. But the views are definitely worth it. By the way: if you are looking for the ultimate B&B, the lighthouse offers guest rooms as well! In the back of the photo you see the Outer Hebrides (North Uist).

Sheep Scotland

Whereever you go in Scotland (maybe except in Edinburgh downtown) you will find sheep. It is very difficult to find unmarked sheep, though - most sheep carry a blue, red, or green dot on their fur to identify the owner. These two seem to be free. :-)

Highland Cattle Scotland

Speaking of typical Scotish animals - here is another photo of Highland Cattle. Skye seems to be a very good place to find these huge, cool-looking, and friendly animals.

Sailing Skye

We also visited Elgol, which is situated in South Skye. The photo shows a yacht crossing Cuillin Sound. In the back the island of Rhum.

The Cullins Skye

Elgol is situated at the Loch Scavaig (in the front). From here, you've got excellent views on the mountain range called "The Cullins". The biggest mountain is "Sgurr Alasdair" with 973 meters height. Simply beautiful.
