Today was a massive day, we went to the Isle of Sky, on the way we had a couple of stops, the first one being Eilean Donan Castle - WOW. What a place it's absolutely beautiful - and that's from the outside, we didn't have time to go inside as we were covering a lot of ground, so we had to be happy with the photos (and we were). Then we made our way to Portree on the Isle of Skye, it's a lovely little village, it was so quiet then ...

... of footpath than I might have expected and the traffic wasn't too heavy but some logging lorries were definitely not hanging about. Passing through Ardelve I noticed an Outdoor Goods shop.

Though it was only 8pm ( it gets dark at l0.30 up here), we estimated that we still had at least 2, maybe 4 miles to go to get to the lodge and there was no obvious path to follow, so we decided to stop and wild camp, knowing that we would have a long day tomorrow.

Day 63

Jeremy was doing a walk of his own on Tuesday so we set off at 8.30 to leave me back to Melvaig allowing him to be back in Gairloch by 9.30. It was a brighter morning and the forecast good. I would be on the road for much of the day so I was expecting to make good progress.
I followed the road from Melvaig south towards Gairloch. At North Erradale I left ...
