Amazing Skye!

Updated: Mar 21

My first trip to the Isle of Skye didn't disappoint! From the aurora, to sea eagles, mountain ranges to lighthouses, waterfalls to castles, highland cows to stags and a 3.30am start for the Old Man of Storr climb for sunrise!

The island itself was mainly of single track roads to get to the great photographic locations. We came in March, I dread to think what the summer must be like with traffic, limited passing places and midges!

Our accommodation had a view directly to the stunning Cullins mountain range below.

A perfect location to visit the nearby Neist Point Lighthouse, below.

But, to be honest, everywhere was nearby! With only a limited number of roads on the island, the furthest we had to drive was to Elgol and Isleornsay an hour and a half away! So, wherever you stay, you'll be near to somewhere amazing and need to drive an hour and a half to visit the furthest point of amazing-ness somewhere else!

The Sea Eagle boat trip from Portree was great, seeing two pairs of these majestic and fearless creatures in the wild was something I won't forget in a hurry.

And on the way to Skye (and on the way home!) we stopped at Glencoe in the hope to see stags .... they were seen but photographically elusive, so a trip to Glencoe next year is in order! We did see the ducks with attitude though!

The Commando Memorial at Fort William was something else, with god's rays landing on the mountain range just beyond the memorial, it gave to an overwhelming scene, giving a moment to the brave soldiers and what they went through for our country to be so great.

To summarise, a fabulous place, whether a photographer or not, add Skye to your list of places to visit.
