Our first 3-hour-holiday this year!

The bike hasn’t been well, we’ve had family visiting, veg to plant, eggs to hatch (occasionally!) and a bed and breakfast to run. Not much opportunity for any 3-hour-holidays which we love so much. The Isle of Skye is a staggeringly beautiful island and what could be nicer than getting on the bike with a picnic and finding a quiet spot just to sit and stare? The only difficult part is choosing that spot! Yesterday was our first opportunity for such a trip and even though the weather was overcast, it was still warm. We headed for Sleat, the southern part of the island. There’s a small road which branches off the main one to Armadale, where ferries sail to the mainland. This wee road passes through three hamlets; Ord, where we ate our picnic, Tokavaig and Tarskavaig. Anyway, see for yourselves…
