Once on the island, we stopped for a lovely view of the Cuillin which is a mountain range. The Red Cuillin are on the left of the road and the Black Cuillin are on the right. The Black Cuillin are higher and rockier than the Red.
This was the view a few steps from our hotel. I kept finding my way to this spot every time I walked out of the room.
One of the highlights of our time on Skye was to visit the Neist Point Lighthouse which is at the westernmost point of the island. It was a beautiful drive across the island (Portree is on the east side) and the weather mostly held up. We stopped at a few photo ops along the way.
Once we arrived at Neist Point, the blue sky started to peak out. We climbed out of the van, pulled on our jackets and headed off for a hike down to the point.
I spent the time wandering around and taking pictures of the view. Unfortunately, my time unsupervised found me involved in some shenanigans...which I will share in the next post.
