In Skye we stayed in the town of Portree, at the Ben Tianavaig B and B, a place we stumbled into which turned out to be some Lonely Planet recommendation. Even when I try to get away from that book, it comes back and haunts me. This was the view from our room.All the signs in Skye are in Gaelic and English.
Here is Portree town, which was the largest town on Skye, but still not very large. It did have a good pub, the Isles Inn, which we went to one night to hear some live Celtic music, which was great. The pub also had a fireplace, a roaring fire being appropriate for Scotland even in July.
We went for a hike up to the 'Old Man of Storr,' which is the pointy rock formation in the middle of this photo, that looks kind of like a tree.
Here was the view along the path.
It was a bit muddy.Watch out! Sheep in the road!
There were acres upon acres of peat, which people were harvesting.
