Skye - an assault on your senses

I went to Skye at the end of October 2005, on a roadtrip that lasted all of 3 days and we covered nearly 1200 miles in that short time. It was worth it because i dont think i have ever seen such amazing scenery on the British Isle's like that before. Skye is a very rugged landscape that is has a beauty all of its own. If you venture into Scotland i strongly would recommend the Isle of Skye

MacLeod's Table

This is a picture of MacLeods Table, apologies to anyone if i have spelt it wrong. An amazing view of this from just outside Uig port.

My partner in crime! The infamous 'Walt!'

my travel buddy, about the only other friend who shares the same passion for travelling as me!

    Looks like you had a fine time Carl... those roads are not so bad... you just need to understand what everyone's up to - the sheep are far more dangerous than the other drivers :-)
