      Day 7. Isle of Skye and Quiraing

      November 24, 2023 in Scotland ⋅ ☁️ 6 °C

      After a good nights sleep we quickly restocked the tanks and had some breakfast then headed for the north coastal road. We got around the head of Skye and arrived at the Quiraing, the UKs largest landslip mountainous area which has created the most scenic mountains.
      We parked the van and headed off along the path crossing waterfalls following the path, which was getting better with every step. Maddy loved every second, crossing sketchy bits with ease, we were calling her a mountain goat, she's definitely got it in her still despite being 13 in 10 days, 2 people think she's a puppy today 😂🐶. We walked to the end of the trial and saw a small path heading straight up the side of the rock stacks. When we eventually got to the top we were just under the top of the mountain, looking down at the formations of rock. It was beautifully peaceful and started to snow a little at the top, we sat here and enjoyed a rest... We then we realised it was up and down the same way, no circuit this way 😂😬. Downhill took ages as it was super steep and slippy, thank God the weather was nice today, Maddy was good as gold on the lead, we both had a little slip over on the way down, but all good 😂. It was super fun to get walking again finally.
      We then headed to Kilt Rock which was pretty, then onto Lealt Falls which was also really cool. We have found a lovely little park up on the side of the coast, with about 6 lighthouses in our view . We have crossed off the map where we have been and read up and ready to head to Applecross tomorrow, hopefully crossing Bealach na Ba, Scotlands 3rd highest mountain pass😬. Super excited as weather is looking good for next few days. Cosy night in the van, pasta bake and games tonight.
