#Holiday, Touring the Inner Hebrides – Isle of Skye #Scotland

We reach our final destination on our recent grand tour of the Inner Hebrides – the Isle of Skye. I cannot deny it, the weather on our first day there was appalling! So much so, it was a challenge to get places, and stand upright long enough to film and photograph. On the other hand, […]

#Holiday – Touring the Inner Hebrides – Mull day 3 #Scotland

While my creativity is still on hiatus, I’m going to finish up the rest of our tour of the Inner Hebrides. I opted for 3 days on Mull, and I’m SO pleased I did – we would never have crammed it all into 2 days, and there are still things left over we didn’t get […]

#Holiday – Touring the Inner Hebrides – Mull day 2 #Scotland

I didn’t quite finish recounting our very long, thrilling first day on Mull/Iona, because there was so much to share. At the end of the last post, I said I had an agenda for leaving Iona before too late in the day, and now I’ll reveal all. One of my bucket list items for the […]

#Holiday – touring the Inner Hebrides – Iona #Scotland

I still have several days of our autumn holiday to recount, and before it slips my mind too far, I’m going to get these posts done! After our scary boat ride out to awesome Staffa Island and Fingal’s Cave, we didn’t return immediately to Mull, but instead landed on Iona – a tiny island with […]

#Holiday – touring the Inner Hebrides. Day 1 – Arran, the King’s Caves #Scotland

After touring the Outer Hebrides last year, this year was the turn of the Inner Hebrides. Arran isn’t technically one of the Inner Hebrides, but it fits nicely into a tour starting at Glasgow and heading north, so that was our first destination. If you saw last year’s posts (find them HERE), you might remember […]

Touring the #OuterHebrides – day 8 – Lewis #holiday #Scotland

I’m back in the Highlands this week, so it seemed an appropriate time to put together the last couple of posts from our epic tour of the Outer Hebrides. I’ve been a bit slow doing these two as there were just SO many photos and videos to sort through it was a bit daunting. What […]

Touring the Isle of Harris, #OuterHebrides day 7 #Scotland

Our second day on Harris was planned well in advance around a visit to the North Harris Eagle Observatory. I have seen a golden eagle once before, up on the north coast of Scotland, but this particular site has a resident pair and sightings are frequent, so with fingers firmly crossed, off we set. On […]

#Holiday time – Touring the #OuterHebrides day 5 – North Uist

There have been so many other things to write about in the past few months, I failed to get through all my intended posts about my October tour of the Outer Hebrides, so I’m picking that up again now. Here we are, moving on from South Uist to North Uist. North Uist covers 117 square […]

South Uist #OuterHebrides day 4 #holiday

So, continuing on up the Outer Hebrides from Eriskay, a single road runs the length of the island of South Uist. On the left (travelling north) the land is flat, with numerous small lochs and tons of ruins amongst the inhabited houses. On the right, ridges of hills, not quite mountains, many the sites of military […]

#Holiday Time – Touring the Outer Hebrides day 3 – Barra to Eriskay #Scotland

  Having woken to find the big ferry departed for the mainland, I checked the status of our smaller transport for the short 40 minute hop between islands. It still showed a warning of possible disruption due to the (still) strong winds, but we checked out of the hotel (they assured us there were plenty of […]
