Via Plockton and Dunvegan to Uig on Skye

After coffee, driving down Loch Alsh we could see the bridge over to Skye in the distance. Now toll-free it is a boon to both visitors and islanders alike.

Before going over the bridge we made what was supposed to be a brief diversion to Plockton. Firstly we missed the shortest road and then the road that we had chosen was blocked by a film crew so we were diverted through the countryside. Eventually we arrived and had a walk along the front in the hot sunshine with the smell of Broom following us for many yards.

On Skye we took an even longer diversion to photograph Dunvegan Castle. I’m not sure how Dunvegan got it’s name. A dun is a fort - perhaps it was inhabited by extremist vegetarians at one time. Perhaps if they ate too many beans it was originally Vegan’s fart!

We arrived at Uig in plenty of time for the ferry and thus began the Hebridean Blog
