Isle of Skye, Day 1: Fairy pools & Highlanders.

DSC_0125Once on Skye, we (lol, rather I*) decided that we should ∼SEIZE THE DAY∼ before checking into our hostel of the evening. So off to the Fairy Pools we went.
Clearly that was by no means an original idea, as we were seemingly joined by the rest of Scotland’s tourists… Oh well!

{Also note the difference of the sky here! One direction vs the other.}
We stated that the pools looked way cooler on pinterest… (possibly reached a lower score because of the crowd of tourists there.)
On the way back however, we encountered these fellas. Highland cows! SO HAIRY! SO CUTE!
They weren’t really up for posing though… *given the cold shoulder*
Our hostel for the following days was probably one of the best ones I ever stayed. The Skyewalker Hostel.

Not ONLY because no one loves a pun more than I (and this place that’s pretty much themed on one?! DREAMY!), but it was also by far the most well-equipped one I have ever been to. Plenty of kitchen utensils, music instruments, books and *drum-roll*… trust-worthy showers!
To top things off, they also had this massive ball of a glasshouse out in the garden. Imagine lying there on a starry night. Safe from the mosquitoes. :’)
The kitchen wall had a slogan suitable for this blog – or what do you say? 😉

More from our road trip: 
→ Aberdeen ⇒ Inverness.
→ Inverness ⇒ Fort Augustus ⇒ Eilean Donan
