Visit to Isle of Skye

Today I want to take you on a visit to Isle of Skye, Scotland, one of the most beautiful places on earth. You can see the breathtaking scenery from the air and learn a bit of the history.

Great video, Vonda! I think the last two were my favorite. Thanks for sharing. :0)

Thank you for sharing these videos. I love everything Scottish. Brings back memories of our trip to Scotland last year and our day trip to Skye. A rugged country and dear people that I love to call family.

Thanks for visiting Holly and Paisley! I was so glad to find these at YouTube. I only got to spend one day and two nights on Isle of Skye 1 1/2 yrs ago. It was awesome but much too short. I was able to visit a few of the sites in these videos, like Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock, Portree, and Duntulum (the castle ruin.) I want to spend much longer there next time (fingers crossed) and climb up behind Old Man of Storr. That would be so cool!

Hi, Vonda!

Your beautiful post definitely transported me to the Isle of Skye. Now that I've had a wonderful fantasy journey, I want to book a flight there :)

Blessings and all the holiday best,

Shawna

When you make it back to Skye, be sure to visit the McDonald Gardens (I can't remember the exact name, but it is the site where the castle ruins and gardens are). We spent hours walking the gardens and seeing the ruins and museum. Being the Fall the colors were out of this world. A must see.

Shawna, if you go to Skye, take me with you!!!!!!!! :-) Blessings to you too!!!

Paisley, I'll definitely have to visit the MacDonald Gardens. I didn't know of their existance until now. I need at least a week to explore Skye next time. ;-)

Traci, it's a lovely, magical place! Definitely worth exploring slowly.

Thanks for visiting!

Vonda, I looked it up and this is the info: MacDonald Trust is the Dunvegan Castle and is located at Armadale on the Isle of Skye. Gorgeous garden, the castle is a damaged shell, but interesting and there is a fabulous museum there.

Vonda Sinclair said...

Oh yes, I definitely want to visit Dunvegan Castle next time. We didn't get into that area last year. Thanks!!

Great pictures Vonda. The first time I went to Scotland I told my husband I was going to go back every year. Ummm, that was the last time I went to Scotland. I love the whole country. Both of my grandmothers' maiden names were MacDonald! Need I say more?

Culloden battlefield made me a believer in spirits.

I had the same feeling, Carly. Lots of chills and a feeling of saddness there. You could almost feel the souls of all the people at Culloden.

Vonda Sinclair said...

I would love to go back every year too, Carly, but I know that isn't possible at the moment. I do want to go back from time to time. I also visited Culloden. A very sad place but I didn't see any spirits there. However in an inn in the nearby town of Nairn, I did see the first spirit or ghost I've ever seen.

I didn't see any spirits but I definitely felt them, and I am not the kind of person to believe in that stuff. Only place I've ever felt like that.

Beautiful! It's been four years since we've been to the U.K. One of the most lovely drives on the trip was from the Lake District in England into Scotland toward Edinburgh.

Vonda Sinclair said...

Wow that's so neat, Carly. But I know it must have freaked you out.

Carol, I'd love to visit the Borders area! I think a lot of my ancestors are probably from there.
