The trip up the mountain section was glorious with a lengthy section where the snow was falling gently. We had to travel slowly - the landscape was superb. The snow finally turned to rain and then cleared to have ray's of sunshine bathing the Skye Bridge. What a welcome! We spend a night in Portree in a dinky little B&B - all lace and ruffles.

Jason chucked out a few of the classic quotes from the Once Were Warriors drinking game and he loved it. Apparently one of his pals had married a kiwi and had been introduced to the classic. He and his mates from some tiny village in Scotland all just loved the movie. It was pretty funny watching him rave over it and doing all the ...
