Inverness ⇒ Fort Augustus ⇒ Eilean Donan

Future dream home, you’re looking at it! ↑DSC_0070DSC_0074DSC_0083
DSC_0124After a purchase of the largest coffees to be found in Inverness and some arguing over the non-working GPS (aka YOURS TRULY!) we were on our way towards Isle of Skye. 

In order to get there, we drove around Loch Ness the non-touristic route (which was in fact not the fault of the GPS) meaning a really narrow single track road covered in greenery; passing by graveyards, fishing boats and fairy-tale like forests. One had to drive quite slowly, both A) for the sake of passing cars but also B) to imbibe the nature.

Just before reaching the bridge to Skye, we made a stop by Eilean Donan Castle. It is located where three lochs meet, a pretty scenic location i.e, and therefore one of the most photographed castles in the world. Unusually, Scotland was treating us to a real fine day of sun – so I can only imagine how epic that building must look on a gloomy day with heavy clouds and mist surrounding it.
