Skye - Day 4

We decided that today it was our way or the highway, so we got to do everything we wanted to do by ourselves (don't forget it you want to follow our adventures, Google Map Isle Of Skye).  We went back to see if we could get any good photos of the harbour at Dunvegan, but failed spectacularly.  Still, we did see this boat on the way to Glendale and thought it was quite photogenic, although we were surprised it was still afloat:

We went all the way to Glendale, stopped briefly at the craft fair, and then went out on Dunvegan Head.  We found these toadstools near the Glendale Mill.  Those fairies have been at it again:

On our way back to Dunvegan, we made some new friends while taking a photo of the view down to the Cuillins and Red Hills:

We then headed round to Waternish Head, and took this at Trumpan church, which is a ruin, but surrounded by graves.  We thought this one was a pretty good view, as it looks over to the Isle Of North Uist.  Round the other side of the church, you got views to the Isle Of Harris:

There were furry graves too...

Finally we ended up at the Fairy Glen near Uig on the northern tip of the island, although it took us longer to get there than planned after LT had a blowout after driving over a large rock in the road.  She got most of the wheel changed herself before a nice lorry driver stopped to help her finish it off.  Anyway, the Fairy Glen was a magical wee place, and a nice place to end the day:

Did you see any fairy's Jack? May be a little speck of fairy dust?

You're getting around quite a lot there Jack. What an adventurer! I know you walked all these hikes all on your own. I'm sure you don't hitch rides like Sebastian, right? Lovely photos - please tell LT. You're very photogenic - just like those rocks!

Hi Jack,

WOW! these are great photos. It looks like you are having a wonderful time and seeing a lot of very interesting things. We had some toad stools in our garden that were bigger than Wendy and they were a red orange. Have fun and take more pictures so we can see what you're doing.
