Today we toured the Isle of Skye taking in Sligachan, Portree, Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock, Quiraing, Uig, Fairy Glen, Dunvegan Castle and Broadford.

The Old Man of Storr is a single, 165 ft (55 m) high pinnacle located in the Trotternish region of the Isle of Skye, Scotland. This is the remains of an ancient volcanic plug and protrudes vertically, like a giant finger. This feature can be accessed via a steep path leading from the roadside car park, a popular site for tourists.
