Quite a nice room, courteous staff, good breakfast - a bit too much fat for my taste. Tried haggis for the first time. I got to the breakfast buffet close to the end of service and the eggs were a bit rubbery, my fault for waiting so long. The fruit was watermelon, grapefruit, and plums. Hot buffet included all manner of sausages, ham, bacon, and other meats; including haggis. They had potato 'scones', very like the potato wedges you get at McDonald's. Check out time was 11, gave me time for a little nap.

In the morning we wake to find everything covered in snow. Last minute shopping and we wend our way via Dunvegan to 6 Fasach ...
... it here, you would too if you were here.
Today we stayed home and had snow ball fights, didn't try to build a snowman.

The one we got is red with a white string to hold onto. We went out the back and played on that all day. We also had a couple of snowball fights.
After we had a swim ...
... for a picture and ate our bakery bought lunch Afternoon -Drove to the fairy pools where we had to get out and walk for about 30 mins along a snow covered mud path. The backdrop was amazing mountains covered in snow and it was freezing. We made it to the fairy pools which were part of a creek coming out the mountains gathering in small rocks pools before continuing down the mountain side. The rocks were covered in snow and looked ...
... photos, Emma let me do all the walking to the lighthouse since it was a bit of a hike down the side of one cliff and then back up a hill before getting to the lighthouse. It is also a hotel, so if any one wants to carry there luggage over a kilometer away it would be really nice especially at sunset which is when we got there and it was pretty cool, even though it is a bit windy. After this we headed back (about a ...
... on foot, knew where the “driest” route through the moor lay while the mounted soldiers, laden with gear, got stuck in the mud. It reminded me a bit of the Badlands in the American West. Well. Except the badlands are really dry and the moor really wet. I meant the part about locals knowing the escape route.
Somewhere in Ranoch Moor, I met Kevin. The Scottish Tourist Bureau should hire Kevin to walk up and down the West Highland Way ...
