    Kyleakin

    May 24 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    We had a look at the memorial to the Commando forces which is located near Spean Bridge - much of the WW2 commando training was undertaken in the area. Ben Nevis in the background was still under a cloud.
    We took the inland road to the Isle of Skye through Glen Gary with its lochs and high mountains - very beautiful.
    Passing over the bridge at the Kyle of Lochalsh we found a spot to stay adjacent to the loch side in the village of Kyleakin. An old fort dating back to the 13th century was a short walk through the village.
    The bridge, completed in 1995, replaced the ferry service to the mainland opposite so the village is very peaceful.
    It is here that Gavin Maxwell lived where he looked after wild otters, in the village and the lighthouse.

    Wildlife on Skye

    July 5, 2018 in the United Kingdom

    Schließlich fuhren wir über die Skye-Bridge auf die Isle of Skye. Und da noch etwas Zeit war, zogen wir den Ausflug zum Kylerhea Wildlife Hide, der erst für übermorgen geplant war, vor.
    Dort kann man (wenn man Glück hat) aus Verstecken heraus Delfine, Wale, Otter und Seehunde beobachten. Die erhofften Otter sahen wir leider nicht, dafür aber jede Menge Seehunde, die auch einen ziemlichen Lärm veranstalteten.
    Die Fahrt nach Kylerhea war eine Aktion für sich - 10 Kilometer hin und zurück auf einer extrem schmalen (einspurigen) und schlecht einzusehenden, kurvenreichen Strecke. Thomas hatte seinen Spaß, die Mädels eher nicht.
    Untergekommen sind wir im MacKinnon Country House Hotel in Kyleakin.
