Today, our main focus was the key sites in and around Glasgow.

After first attending to flight confirmations for following day we proceeded as follows:

  • To Pollock Park to view and photograph a small herd of Highland Cattle which are very placid and photogenic animals.

Today, commenced with a very early start. At 5.00am I was able to take some stunning images of  a brilliant red sunrise at Broadford on Skye.

Today, the weather on Skye proved relatively benign (cool but no rain) which greatly assisted our tour of the island which proceeded as follows:

  • Broadford to Portree, the latter being the island’s capital. We tracked to the coast passing islands including Pabay, Scalpay and Raasay during the drive which took about 45 mins. Note that island names end in ‘ay’ which is Old Norse (Viking) for island.
  • Upon arriving at Portree, we parked and spend about 1 hour walking around the town with its pretty harbour and shops. A friendly local butcher provided information on Haggis which he had for sale.
