Today we went to the Isle of Skye on our private tour. There were four of us including myself, Helena, Mariana and Lars. When I get in the car I always ask people for their ‘tick box’ list, although we often go to the same places, each person has an expectation, something they particularly want to see, or enjoy during that day, these are the things that make it special.
On today’s tick box list was a Highland cow, wonderful scenery, and a few surprises if possible. I knew where there we some cows of course, its a common ask. so off we went, the first two farmers has moved their cows, so it wasn’t until we got onto the Isle of Skye itself we found them .
There was quite a herd of them and they are usualy up the mountain and away from the cameras but today they were close to the road, and easy to photograph.
Of course the next ask was easy, wonderful scenery, We went to Portree, and then on to past the old man of Storr, and did the loop, taking in Kilt Rock, at Staffin and the Living museum close to Uig. the scenery on Skye is amazing.
We continued towards home, on the Locharron road, where there were some wonderful photos opportunites and by then the sun was making it all so much better. We continued home through Garve and decided as we were passing to go to Rogie Falls, I had heard the salmon were jumping at Shin Falls so there was a good chance they were at Rogie Falls as well. Well there came the last of the tick box’s the few surprises, we had only been watching about five minutes when the first salmon jumped, we stayed watching for quite some time, unfortunately we just weren’t quick enough to get a picture no matter how hard we tried, but we all were more than happy that we saw it and created a new memory.
