I needed a holiday so, so badly. After a tough half term at school I tentatively booked 5 days on Skye. This is a trip I had planned for the same time last year when my plans were scuppered by a broken collarbone and subsequent shoulder surgery. This year’s plans were hanging by a thread as we awaited Nicola Sturgeon’s Coronavirus restriction updates.
Thankfully we were able to travel up to Scotland and get out in nature and in the quintessential Scottish weather. With rough conditions I didn’t manage to capture all the photos I would have liked from the stunning scenery but made the most of the wide angle lens and did some cliché long exposure shots. It was also the first time I’d managed to get the drone out and have a play with it – albeit with a nagging worry that it would get blown away and id see £300 worth of technology flying into the sea.
The Old Man of Storr is an iconic symbol of Skye and thankfully, Nadine and I ventured up very early to avoid the crowds. Unfortunately it was super cloudy/foggy and windy up there but it kind of added to the eerie atmosphere of the place.
On a predictably stormy day we managed to get a last minute booking onto the Talisker distillery tour. I hate whisky. It was a fairly interesting tour and we got a take home taster bag of 3 exclusive scotches to try. I still hate whisky.
