Enchanted Waters, Sligachan Bridge & Cullins Landscape on 14Jun2017 (Day 6 Fort Williams/Isle of Skye Trip 9-14Jun2017)

sligachan hotel

leaving for inverness today on 14.6.2017. ^^

wife chose to go inverness as we then did not have to make a 6-hr drive back to glasgow. we had booked an easyjet flight from inverness to london luton the next day.

inverness is a 3hr drive. so we need not rush…we had a nice lunch booked already at one michelin star kinloch at the sleat peninsula.

we were early, with time (about 1.5hrs) to spare. 🙂

we stopped at sligachan to take in the beautiful sligachan bridge & landscape of the cullins.

Sligachan is located at the junction of the roads from portree, dunvegan & bradford. the hotel (top photo) was built around 1830. many early climbers chose this as a spot to start ascents of the cuillin.

we were here 3days ago when we were going to fairy pools on 11.6.2017.

we stopped but it was pouring, so we left and did not walk around…

there were groups of students doing their field study trips. 🙂

to confer eternal beauty for the ladies.

you need to kneel down, bend over let your face immerse into the flowing river, and then let it air dry, cannot cup the water & cannot wipe dry!

freezing cold it must be, so good luck to you all! 🙂

but it was starting to rain again, and our car was parked at the hotel grounds for short while.

we returned to the car, but it was still too early for lunch maybe another 45mins. so we drove over and parked at the carpark south side of sligachan bridge. we dressed up in rain gears & went to take a short walk along the trail.

we couldn’t go far also, so we turned back after a short walk, and headed to kinloch, much looking forward to our lunch.
