Isle of Skye

After taking some time to search for Nessi and no luck we headed north and west to the Isle of Skye.

Eilean Donan Castle - part of Highlander was filmed here

the boys absolutely loved this area -they were free to roam and explore - what they do best

the rugged mountains reminded us of colorado and we were surprised by how impressive they were

"fairy pools" - as the world has been taken over by infamous fairy pools of Scotland - we asked the locals at a cafe we stopped at for lunch.  After a questioning look one young man gave us some directions so we could find the fairy pools but continued on to say there are many around.  Basically Scotland is full of beautiful "fairy pools" - and I have to agree

it was impossible to capture all the different dimensions with the meadows, fall colors, rolling hills and jagged peaks

Dillon had a very personal experience with a bog - one that he will never forget.  I will never forget the expression on his face when it happened.

Third and final installment of Scotland up next.......
