A journey to Skye over the mountains June 2013

The journey lasted three hours from Beauly to Skye over the mountains following the A835 then joining the A832 towards the Kyle of Lochalsh. Sorry only six photos but the weather kept closing in and photographs had to be taken when the weather allowed. The first two photos were taken between Loch Luchart looking towards Loch Fannich. The third and fourth are of Lochcarron as you can see one minute clear and the next raining hard. There are none of Skye due to dense fog but we did cross the bridge. We then followed the A87 until we reached Eilean Donan Castle just after the road crosses Loch Long near Dornie and again the weather cleared, I took two photos and if you look closely the first shows dark clouds and the second brighter and within minutes rain poured down and my camera was again put away. The drive back to Beauly was through rain and fog along the Old Military Road and the River Shiel, then following Loch Ness north towards Beauly near Inverness. The whole journey took some 9 hours.
