Isle of Skye, day 2

I forgot to add in a couple cool photos from yesterday: two horses (used on the motorway between Edinburgh and Glasgow) and a dragon cloud formation.

The day started out cloudy with rain likely by afternoon. We left Portree and stopped at Old Man of Storr.

Then on to Kilt Rock, named for the similarity in the pleats on the back of a kilt. Here is where the liquid sunshine started.

After a group lunch, we visited Fairy Glen. The rain picked up when we were atop the fairy castle.

Isle of Skye, Scotland

I’ve spent the last 2 days on a Heart of Scotland tour from Edinburgh to the Isle of Skye. Tomorrow we head to Inverness and then we make our way back to Edinburgh on Monday. These last couple of days have been incredible, with bright, warm day one and cloudy and wet day two. Here are a few photos before the tour loaded up for the ferry ride to Skye.
