Wonderful Week on Isle of Skye

I seem to get less and less time to write my blog, not really very good at blogs anyway lol.  This week we have been busy, heading off to the Isle of Skye.  The weather has been at its best.  It was too hot even for the Midges.  The heather is in bloom!! and so is the thistle so we have a sway of purple all over the mountains and glens.  Purple being the colour of royalty of course, it makes us glad to see it and it makes the mountains and glens look so special.  Eilean Donan castle has been her usual majestic self, always a favourite with guests and Kilt rock has been so busy we had trouble parking just to see it.  It is always wonderful to see so many people enjoying the Highlands and Islands.  I like to save the best until last, so we have a view of the highlands from the Loch Carron road and then Loch Carron itself.
