Scotland 2018 Travel Diary (Afterwards) Day 10

Isle of Bute! We heard a lot of stories. “Skye is beautiful but crowded” “There are other islands which are beautiful too” etc. etc.. But when we took the 2 min ferry to the Isle of Bute we had no idea what to expect. Its small but beautiful. I dont know what to say. We drove around the whole island and walked to the little Lighthouse in the middle of nowhere. Pictures say more then words! This was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been!

Scotland 2018 Travel Diary (Afterwards) Day 9

Woke up on the beautiful Island of Skye. Drove back to the mainland and went to the Glenfinnan Viadukt. If you’ve seen Harry Potter this should look familiar.

Whats really crazy about this. After we arrived at the Viadukt it was the first time after nearly 10 days that we met a looooot of tourists. So we were pretty sure that we have left the lonely roads and have to struggle way more traffic. So we took smaller routes which took a little longer, but were not that crowded!

Scotland 2018 Travel Diary (Afterwards) Day 8

After this beautiful west coast route we hit the road the next day very early. It was a 2 hour drive to the Isle of Skye. The Talisker distillery was the first spot we wanted to see.

Since we hadn’t booked anything before the trip we highly believed that we wouldnt find anything to sleep on the island itself. (And again,  everybody told us because Skye is very popular).

After a great Talisker Whiskey Tasting (I obviously had just one since I was the driver) we went to an awesome seafood spot right up the hill. Oysters, Scallops, Lobster and Salmon. All caught locally. Incredible and cheap!

We hit the road to drive around Skye. Again one lane roads with just a few passing places is way more exhausting then a free Autobahn on a Sunday morning, I tell you!

Went to the northest point of Skye to this little castle. Since it was already getting late we thought we could try our luck and check for some B&Bs. After the second try we got a real jackpot. In the middle of nowhere there was this old lady having two rooms available since she doesn’t offer anything on Air BNB or bookings.com. Went for a little walk and straight to bed. Awesome day!

Scotland 2018 Travel Diary (Afterwards) Day 7

Last two days were a little buys. Sorry for the lack of updates.

Here is day 7. I think I shot more videos on this route. The sceneries were the most beautiful of the whole trip I think. Driving from Tounge to Ullapool and a litte further to find a Bed & Breakfast. (I include maps now!) Its no lie! The west coast of Scotland is incredible!

The farm we stayed from day 6 to 7 had so much little lamps, so we HAD TO help feed them in the morning.

Scotland 2018 Travel Diary (Afterwards) Day 5+6

Since the last post was a bit short I decided to post two days today. Still on Orkney Islands. Visited the Highland Park Distillery. And just drove the next 24 hours around Orkney. Just a magical place. No trees and endless landscapes. So beautiful! The Ring of Brodgar was incredible to see! Google it! Went so see some cliffs again. And the last few pictures are from the ferry back to the mainland. Just dove a couple of kilometres to the city Tounge where we stayed the night. And yes. There are Pumas around that area. Luckily we haven’t seen one!
Are you ready for baby lambs? See you tomorrow guys!
