When we booked our two week trip, everything we had heard said that when visiting Scotland, the Isle of Skye was a must see. That wasn't so close to Edinburgh and we just weren't sure about the time it would take to get there. Then we found a 3-day round trip small coach trip tour that would pick us up and drop us off in Edinburgh. I am not really a tour bus kind of traveler because I don't like the drive by, seeing things through the window, stopping only for a few moments for a photo op kind of tour. But our options were limited so we signed up. The trip was definitely a drive by type tour, but once I got over that we actually had a nice trip. We saw A LOT of sights on our way to and from Skye, which considering it was only 3 days, was impressive.
Day 1 - This was our drive to Skye...
Only got to see this hairy cow, but at least I saw one.
