DAY THREE: EILEAN DONAN CASTLE AND THE ISLE OF SKYE 
10:00– We departed our cute little bothy and began our journey to Skye!
12:00- We stopped off at the cute Eilean Donan Castle, a 13th century structure which is located where three lochs meet. It’s varying historical elements made the structure all the more charming.

14:00- We’ve hit the Skye bridge and we’re now on our way! We can’t wait to explore the island we’ve heard so much about.
15:00- Eager to get a taste from the only whisky distillery on Skye, we headed to Talisker for a tour and tasting. You can see our reactions below haha!

16:00- Back in the car we go and we’re off to discover Neist point- rock structures along the coast and a lighthouse.

18:30- A reaaaally long drive takes us to The Old Man of Storr, an amazing formation of rocks that have been the setting for many a film, including Interstellar. After attempting the steep climb for a better view, we headed back to the car with weary legs but giant smiles!

21:00- We finally arrive at our little lodge in Achintraid and it’s looking out on a loch- it’s fabulous!

DAY FOUR- LOCH NESS, GLENFINNAN VIADUCT AND LOCH TAY
09:30- Waking up bright but not so early, we grab some Scottish oats for breakfast before heading off for a brand new day. We’re at the northern most point of our trip, so we’re looking to make the slow-ish decent back down to Glasgow over a day.

11:00- Right on Loch Ness is Urquhart Castle, a certified historical ruin. After a short presentation we saunter around the location, taking in all it’s glories.

12:30- We’re on the road again after a bite to eat, taking the long road south!

14:30- A detour from the main road we’re travelling on, we decided to take a gander at Glenfinnan Viaduct, one of the filming locations used in Harry Potter. It might be spitting but that isn’t dampening our spirits!

16:00- The views from Glencoe are spectacular and honestly we’re so glad it rained! The clouds are moodily drifting between the mountains and it’s so magical we stop for pictures.

18:30- And breaaaathe. We’re at our fourth accommodation, an adorable Armadilla. It’s cute, cosy and we’re so glad we’re here early so we can spend a long evening chilling out.
