From Inverness to Skye

I've been absent from the blogosphere this week as I've been up in the Highlands and Inner Hebrides in Scotland with work.  I'm now on call over this weekend so I'm going to take advantage of being in the house and catch up on my blog reading and get some posts written.  I have come home to some parcels of things I ordered from ASOS, Room 31 and H&M so I'm looking forward to doing a mammoth trying on session and showing you what I've been spending my pennies on, along with doing lots of catching up on TV, lolling around in my pajamas and drinking tea.

My trip with work took me to Inverness, and then across to the Isle of Skye on the west coast of Scotland.  Because we were away with work we couldn't do much exploring, but I'd been told that the drive from Inverness across to Skye was absolutely beautiful so I took my camera along in case there was anywhere to stop along the way.  Unfortunately it rained from the moment we arrived at Inverness Airport until the moment we left yesterday so taking photos was quite challenging due to the camera getting absolutely soaked and the fact that it was so overcast and dull.  We did drive past Loch Ness but unfortunately I didn't spot the Loch Ness monster either.  He was probably sheltering from all the rain.  Here are a few snaps I managed to take during the drive.






As you can just about see, the scenery was beautiful - I'd love to come back and have a good explore when I'm not working.  Have any of you been up in this neck of the woods before? I do envy people who live up here, can imagine Bodhi would enjoy his morning dog walk if he had this on his doorstep!

  1. I stayed near Loch Ness for a week two years ago just before Christmas. It was beautiful but I've never been so cold in my life! We stayed in a huge log cabin on the lake with a wood burning stove. It was beautiful. I can't wait to see your purchases. X

  3. These photos are beautiful! Looks like a lovely, very scenic place to visit! I live right on the border with Scotland but I don't think I've ever been up to the Isle of Skye before - or not that I can remember! My Grandma loves it up there though and has been a couple of times for holidays. xxx

  4. Beautiful photos which remind me why I love Scotland.
    I usually visit Aultbea (about 70 miles up from Inverness) - it is great for scenic walks and there are some amazing beaches in the area (if only it were sunny more often!).

  10. I'm from Aberdeen and used to have a boyfriend from the isle of Harris so the route your talking about is familiar to me. It is really beautiful. But I think it's just too far out to live there - his family pretty much just watched TV all day there wasn't much to do!
