From our dockside location at Inverie, we made the short sail across the Sound of Sleat this morning to visit the south of the Isle of Skye. From the ferry terminal, we stretched our legs on a short walk to see Armadale Castle, the seat of the MacDonald clan. While the old stone architecture is interesting to view from the outside, the real attractions at this site are the fascinating and comprehensive Museum of the Isles and the peaceful and very beautiful botanic gardens. There are species of trees from all over the world featured and cultivated, some from a few centuries ago. After lunch back on board, conditions were calm and just perfect for our journey to the final destination on this itinerary, Kyle of Lochalsh. A short bus ride away was photogenic Eilean Donan Castle. Guests enjoyed a couple of pleasant hours exploring the area before returning for our last evening together aboard Lord of the Glens.
