We took the CalMac ferry from Malliag to the Isle of Skye – a very beautiful up to 45 minutes journey – which excited Billy very much as he never knew a car could ride on a boat. I highly recommend taking this route to Skye, it’s beautiful.
It was on Skye that we had out first full Scottish breakfast and my liking of haggis began. But I cannot do the blood pudding! Can you spot which one is the pudding and which is the haggis here at Cafe Sia? Billy loved the potato scones.
We stopped at many places on Skye but it was at the stunning Slighchan bridge where Billy stepped out to stretch his legs and scramble over the rocks. There is a myth that the waters of the river are enchanted and will grant you eternal beauty if you dip your face in the water. Wonder if that works on fingers because that is all that got dipped into that very cold water.
Up to this point Billy had not seen any of his hairy coo cousins but we saw plenty of sheep! He wasn’t terribly fond of the sheep as they got in the way often where we were driving.
And just like that, it was time to check into our Bed and Breakfast outside of Portree on Skye.
