Monday 29 Jun - Fort William to Unverness via Skye
This was a long drive today and we really should have been less ambitious. We got some early photos of Ben Nevis and the Nevis Range and were surprised that it had snow on its sides. We then traveled inland to Loch Laggan (featured) and crossed over the Calendonian Canal after being force to wait as the swing bridge allowed two yachts to pass through the canal in front of us. We then ventured NW to Skye crossing at Skye Bridge and traveling some of the Isle (a small waterfall on the isle is featured here). Then it was back to Kyle of Lochalsh to photograph the rebuilt Eilean Donan Castle. We then traveled SE to Invermoriston on Loch Ness then following the Loch (see photo of Heather growing on road cutting) and later the Ness River onto Inverness again crossing the Caledonian Canal.
