Whisky, Sheeps, and Views: Pt II

Updated: Sep 18, 2018

View from the Quiraing

If one is still reminiscing about a trip that he or she went a month ago, it is either because there was something dramatic that occurred during the trip; or in this case, the scenery of the destination is just extraordinary that one can't just let go of it. I am of course talking about my trip to Isle of Skye.

Welcome back to part II of Whisky, Sheeps, and Views. Today, I will be sharing some of the shots that I have taken throughout the journey. Please enjoy!

Sunset at Inverness Castle

First off is a shot taken outside the Inverness Castle. I stayed at Inverness for the first and the last night of the trip because there is no direct flight to Isle of Skye. The most common way to get to Isle of Skye is to drive from Inverness or Fort William.

And...I am very glad that I made the decision to fly to Inverness! The capital of the highlands is definitely one of the most relaxing cities to walk around. I would totally recommend to spend a day or two here if you are visiting other places in Highlands.

Driving to Isle of Skye is quite a long journey. Depending on the weather and the time of the day, it would take you around 3-4 hours. Luckily, the view en route to Isle of Skye is just as marvelous.

These two photos are taken around a tourist attraction called 'The Fairy Pools.' Unfortunately, I was not able to walk all the way to the spot where the vibrant water falls are located. However, not only you would be able to see other waterfalls along the way, but also the mountain view is just as stunning.

Some shots I took at the waterfall near the entrance of the attraction. (If you are reading this with your phone, try tapping the 'next-photo' button for a timelapse!)

You may think this place looks familiar. For those of you who have read my article about suede jackets, this is exactly where I took the photos at.

Although originally being unfortunate to go inside of Dunvegan castle, I was actually advised to drive further so that I could take photos of the castle from a distance. Not only I was able to take some shots of the castle, but also some amazing shots of a stream there as you could see from above.

The town of Portree

Lastly, featuring a photo taken at the capital of Isle of Skye -- Portree. You could also check out one of my food-tasting journey at Portree by clicking here.

Visiting Isle of Skye allows me to take a break from the busy city life of London. The laid-back life of Skye would definitely be something I will miss a lot.
