Travel Blogs from Kyleakin
Wherever we've been in Scotland people have commented about how the weather this summer is unusually cold and rainy.

We went in to grab a drink and the Scottish aren't like the Irish where they have no problem striking up a conversation. Oh well, it was at least nice not sitting in a bus! After a beer, we headed back because we wanted to get up early to plan our adventures on Loch ...
