Highlights of the Week
Well who knew that the Isle of Skye had black sand beaches? We certainly didn’t until we spotted this beauty when we were out searching for dinosaur footprints.
In 2002, fossilised dinosaur footprints were discovered in a stone slab, which has really put Staffin Beach on the map! We enjoyed an early morning walk down here, surrounded by the towering cliffs and admiring the views around us.
The Quiraing is a beautiful spot to visit on the Isle of Skye. There is a walk around this incredible landscape which is a distance of 6.8km and is a photographers dream!
Allt Daraich Falls
There was one morning that we were lucky enough to have a glimpse of sunshine. We made the most of it and walked out to a sight that has been on our list for quite some time, Allt Daraich.
Similar to the Fairy Pools, Allt Daraich is made up of small waterfalls and plunge pools surrounded by towering mountains. The clear water made it very tempting to get in for a swim but unfortunately we had no towels with us. Touching it with my hand which quickly made it go numb, made me realise this was possibly for the best 😂
We were invited to stay at the beautiful Ardcana accommodation in Skye which was a nice shelter from the stormy weather for the past couple of nights. If you are visiting Skye, we definitely recommend you check it out if you are looking for somewhere to stay. You can read more about our time there, here.
In other exciting news, we booked our first flights in far too long this week. We are taking a trip back to the beautiful island of Malta next month and we cannot wait!
We also had our first zoom call with our lovely Patreons this week. It was so nice connecting and chatting together 🥰 If this is something you think you might like to get involved in, you can read more about it here.
This weekend, we are heading back to Glasgow to spend time with our friends watching the Six Nations before we set off again next week.
Have a great week ❤️
