A selection of photos I've taken here during the last couple of weeks - I haven't forgotten about the Skye photos, just need a few hours spare to go through them all and select.

Skye - The Arrival

20 - 27 November was spent on the gorgeous Isle of Skye.

We stayed in a lovely cottage on the Sleat peninsular, near Armadale. Here's a few photos taken from the shore at the bottom of the garden... it was difficult waking up to this view every day!

Lots more Skye blog posts to follow of my photos taken during the week. We were blessed with great weather everyday - blue skies, sunshine - until the Thursday when the snow arrived. it was perfect!

Almost reached our destination - view by Isleornsay
