Photos and the City

Slow travel & photography

My final destination for this day way a B&B near Eilean Donan Castle, my most northern stop for this time. But there was still a little way to drive and a few things to see. For tea I choose the “Castle Stalker view” – a lovely little restaurant with the best view of Castle Stalker.

Set on an island in Loch Laich Castle Stalker is privately owned, even though they now offer tours to the castle during the summer (which I only found out right, but that´s a good reason to go back there another time).

Driving around moody lochs and being stopped by boats going through a lock.

And again we were stopped by heavy transport – there were some wings going by…

Finally the first view of Eilean Donan Castle, which I´ve known already from so many movies and tales.

It was raining cats and dogs when I arrived at the Seadrift B&B and lucky me, otherwise I would have missed this special greeting!

The Skye Bridge, connecting Skye to the mainland was only a few minutes drive, but this time I saw Skye only from this side!
