Highland Adventures - Isle of Skye

Star rating - 10/10

Another exhilarating and dramatically beautiful day's walking today started off with seal spotting on the way into Skye.

The sun was shining, the sky was blue, and all was right with the world on this majestic island. And a fabulous and rather privileged walk around Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Black Cuillin mountains was definitely worth the effort.

Lots of visitors to this part of Skye don't venture far along the shore, and consequently those who do are rewarded with a seat among the most awe inspiring mountains in a most tranquil and peaceful setting. It truly is amazing.

On the way back to Knoydart we saw a mInke whale near the boat, and the excitement of seeing such an array of wildlife so close up nearly made me come over all David Attenborough.

And so my wonderful Highland adventures continue...
