Scotland: Endlessly Beautiful Island of Skye – VIDEO

Published: 24.9.2019
If I could only return to Scotland in one place, it would be either a remote and deserted mountainous island of Harriss, or justified by Skye. And the more I think about it, the more Skye wins.

On a small area, Skye offers, except forests, everything people go to Scotland. Beautiful mountains and dramatic natural scenery, waterfalls, cliffs, heaths, incredibly green meadows, whiskey distilleries, fish-bars, beautiful sandy beaches, lakes, the ocean and sports.
In the morning I got up again in heavy rain and in truth I did not want the bike at all. In the end, I didn't regret that I was off. From the town of Kyleakin at the bridge to the mainland, with a breakfast stop in Portree, I headed straight to my biggest destination of the day - The Quiraing.

The Quiraing   The Quiraing

I parked my motorbike in the muddy parking lot and set off under the ridge in the rain. With every step I took liters of water into my shoes, flowing everywhere. But at the moment I didn't mind. The majestic beauty of the place is difficult to describe. The grass, thanks to the enormous humidity and demanding conditions, has perhaps the greenest color you can ever imagine. From the rocks of The Quiraing, which are completely obscured by heavy gray clouds at any moment, many streams run down and fall sharply, and the line of the rugged coastline looms in the distance.

The Storr

Suddenly, a strong wind rises and gradually blows heavy clouds. I have already left the summit path, descended below the rocks and I do not want to go back up. Still, I have a wonderful spectacle. The whole landscape is gradually lit by the midday sun and alternates with gray clouds. The rays sometimes fall on The Quiraing and I am sorry that in such a strong wind there is no point in trying to take off with a drone.

While the wind tried to throw me off the bike at the moment, but fortunately I was safely arrived at another place that would be a sin omitted. The Mealt Falls from a high rocky cliff straight into the ocean, and I didn't mind having to stand in front of them because of the blocked and partially flooded parking lot.

Mealt Falls

The Lealt Falls are just a short drive further south. After a heavy rain they were all the more majestic. What they lacked in height was caught up by the power and the roar of a huge stream of water.

Lealt Falls

I'd like to stay on Skye for a long time, but unfortunately I was pushed by time, so I set out on the last part of my trip to Scotland, which you can read in the last episode of the series.

Against the dark sky, walls with gothic windows over the centuries lashed with rain and overgrown with rich green grass provoke our imagination longing to know at least a small piece of their stories.

We are running of fuel while gaining kilometers and there are not many gas stations around. Eventually, everything works out well and we continue in our journey.

It is time to leave the landscape of lakes, mountains, and long valleys in the center of Scotland and head through the inhospitable wasteland to the north to Thurso in sight of the Orkney islands. Instead of the highway A9, leading along the coast, I also chose deserted roads through endless moors and wetlands.

After a whole day in the wetlands in the north of Scotland, I headed west along the coast to get back to the mountains. They are much lower than those in the center of the country, but it does not detract from their beauty. Because of the harsh climates, heather and grass are often not kept on them, often leaving only majestic gray rocks.
