To tyro: The Quiraing
Caro Giovanni

Oh lucky you! I'm with you in spirit and wish you happy travels. I used Portree as a base. It's best that you drive up to the little car park and do the loop from there. This is the Isle of Skye tourism site: which I found quite helpful and has maps. And this:

The highlights were the Old Man of Storr, The Quiraing, Dunottar Castle, Kilt Rock and the Fairy Glens. They're all very well marked. There's a lovely French/seafood restaurant right down in the port at Portree which is worth a visit too ��

Un abbraccio

Ciao cara Lisa,

Thank you for your reply - that's most helpful. The walk sounds not too far - 7 Km is manageable by me though I suspect some bits are perhaps just a bit too steep. But I could probably manage part of the walk - perhaps just the part you did.

Thanks for our notes about other interesting places on Skye too - though I suspect you mean Dunvegan Castle rather than Dunnottar - you've been looking at too many of Craig's pictures! :)

Un abbraccio,

Castles on Skye
Caro Giovanni

Yes you're right, I did not mean Dunnotar Castle, I meant Duntulm Castle. Although Dunvegan on the water is also lovely. Here is another site that may help:

Also, there are a number of souterrains on the island. Over 20 I believe. I visited one not far from the Skye Bridge which was in the middle of a paddock inhabited by black devil goats. I'm not sure of its name though.

In abbraccio

Hello Lisa and Hello John!

I don't want to make "publicity" for my own photos but I read that John was looking for more information about walking the Quiraing - A really magical place indeed Lisa! - and I have set a link in my infos under this photo:

Friendly greetings,

Dear Viviane,

Thank you so much for your message to Lisa and myself! I have looked at your lovely photograph from three years ago (and written a critique too!) and you have given us some very useful information in your note about it.

Unfortunately Yvonne and myself were only in Skye for three days in September and we didn't actually get to the Quiraing, but it is somewhere I'd definitely want to visit in the future.

I hope that you and Chris are well.

Kindest Regards,
