Skye Road Trip

Easter Sunday, 1 April 2018. Weather forecast looked good for a road trip to Skye, with the intention of ‘doing something different’ at The Storr. My daughter Eilidh wanted to come along. Left home at 2am for the 200 mile journey to Skye. Lots of deer on the roads through the Highlands, the bad weather and heavy snows lately has forced them down off the mountains, and I had to brake sharply as they ran in front of the car. 6am at Eilean Donan Castle and we stopped for the obligatory shots of the Castle. The full moon was sitting directly over the Castle and, before sunrise, the Belt of Venus (anti-twilight arch) appeared in the sky over Skye. The magic hour. Onwards to Skye, over the bridge
