    Farewell to Skye, farewell to Scotland.

    August 31, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 59 °F

    Friday morning dawned bright and beautiful, making it hard to leave. But, it's time to make our way back to Edinburgh and then home. We reversed our steps, taking the ferry back to the mainland, then boarding the train back to Glasgow. This time, our journey was in sunshine instead of rain. Overall, we've had more dry days than wet, so we've been lucky. Even more fortunate to have the clear days in some of the most beautiful places, Oban, Iona and Skye. However, Scotland is lovely almost everywhere.

    The people have also been very friendly, once we made the first move. Everywhere we went, we found the Scots very willing to offer help when we asked for directions or other information. We will have many great memories (and over 1200 photos!). We wouldn't hesitate to return, but Dennis would probably prefer to leave all of the driving to someone else!
