Yesterday we were joined by bob n Lorna so up to 4cars now, then we went and paid our respects at the commando memorial at speak bridge
From here we took the road to skye and it rained really chucked it down and as you all can guess after we eventually gave in and put the roof on it stopped ......
But honestly the scenery is stunning
We got to skye is the bridge as the wee glenelg ferry was shut , had a cuppa and toured around Portree it is buetifull with the cuillins stealing the show
Forecast is sun today
