It’s been three years since we’ve been to the Misty Isle and we’re coming back!
Lisabet and I will be spending two whole weeks on the Isle of Skye, hopefully with vibrant autumn colours, cooler temperatures, and gorgeous light.
The first time we went to the Isle of Skye was back in 2014, the second leg of a two-week Scottish jaunt in the Highlands. We spent the first week hiking wide-eyed around the splendours of Glencoe, before venturing further north for our first look at the Isle of Skye.
My first visit to Skye was a dream come true; I instantly and violently fell in love with the island. Looking back at my old blog entries about this visit, words like “surreal”, “otherworldly”, and “legendary” enjoy plentiful repetition.
I vowed that we would return.
And return we did, in 2016, again as part of a two-week Scottish Highlands exploration. We used the first week to revisit Skye, and expand a little further, then during the second week we ventured further north to the Torridon and Applecross area.
This year, 2019, we will be spending a full two weeks on the Isle of Skye, really getting to know the place. There might even be opportunities for ferrying across to other islands I’ve had my eye on (Eigg, I’m looking at you).
I just. Can’t. Wait. To show you what I will experience.
Here’s to wonderful light!
