Oh. My. Goodness!!! Before I tell you what we've been doing today, I have to share with you the delicious beef stew that Mr JK rustled up for supper yesterday. It tasted so good. And even better, we are eating it again tonight, with a sliced potato topping. Mmmmmm! Luckily for me, Mr JK loves to cook, and I am happy to eat! So everyone's a winner!
We went to the most westerly point on Skye today when we walked out to Neist Point lighthouse. The cliffs are stunning and in the distance you can see the Outer Hebrides. There was a good path all the way, although it was quite steep in places. I could feel the muscles in my calves!
There were sheep grazing all over the headland, and yet again, wonderful views!
The cliffs look so dramatic - on a stormy day it must be amazing with the waves crashing at their base.
Around one more turn in the path and the lighthouse came into view. The lighthouse is still used, but these days it's fully automated. You can still see the old aerial rope-way pulley system which was used to take supplies out to the lighthouse cottages.
It started raining after lunch so we decided to visit the Talisker whisky distillery. Mr JK is fond of a wee dram, so it was interesting to learn how it is produced. There may well have been a purchase or two!!
On the way back home, we stopped off to admire the views ......again! It really is a beautiful island, and it's made me want to see more of the Scottish Isles. See you tomorrow. xxx
PS - I thought you might like a taste of Mr JK's beef dinner - grab a fork and dig in!
