In the car again (which, yes, I guess is pretty mandatory seeing as this IS the documentation of a road trip) we headed towards Portree, on the coffee hunt. (The instant stuff often found in hostels does not count/deserve to be titled “coffee”, in my humble opinion…)
After the mornings first cuppa, we had a peek at the harbour and nicked some wild blackberries.
But the real destination for the morning was the Old Man of Storr; the large pinnacle you can see to the right.
The views from the hike up the hill were just stunning. Look at all that blue!
Voila! We did not make it all the way to the top; instead we laid down in the grass for a while, seeking shelter from the light winds and just enjoyed the landscape.
The rest of the afternoon we drove around the northern part of the isle, had coffee under sizzling sun in Dunvegan before driving back towards “our” part of the isle.
Final stop before dinner was Talisker Bay.
I was well intrigued by the black (???) sand dunes.
We ended the evening with a meal and a pint at The Old Inn in Carbost; they even had a vegan curry!!! (That I downed in like 7 minutes tops. So hungry from all the fresh air!)
