Hello hello! I am sorry the blog has been moving a bit slow lately and you’re seeing duplicate pictures on the home page, which might be getting on your nerves! Can you forgive me? We are still recovering from our ‘bug’ and moving a bit slow…construction will continue for a wee while, but hopefully finish soon! This week’s Travelling Tuesday is from the Isle of Skye, which is a beautiful island off the west coast of Scotland.

On one of our last weekends in the UK, we took a trip to Skye to enjoy the scenery and say our goodbyes to Bonnie Scotland. I took this shot, looking south on the Isle of Skye, with mainland Scotland to the east. The Cuillins (also called the Black Cuillins) are the mountain range in the distance, and (yay!) those are bonnie Scottish thistles in the foreground. Could nae be much more Sco’ish a shot, save adding a pint and a kilt!


The lovely weekend made it even more difficult to say goodbye to Bonnie Scotland. When the sun shines, it is one of the most beautiful places in the world. If only the sun shone a little more — methinks everyone would move there! Our friend Hope joined us, and we enjoyed wonderful weather (by Isle of Skye standards — it was still quite cold to us) and driving around and walking a little and just taking in the beauty of the unique creation of this wee isle! It was a great weekend, other than the occasional traffic jam here and there…


So, if you ever find yourself in the UK, I highly recommend you make the trip! Happy trails!
