Isle of Skye (3/3) 17- 19.09.2010

The last day in every of my trip was always depressing, because I was about to go back soon :(

We didnt do much in the last day, went to Eileen Donan Castle on our way back.

 Eileen Donan Castle- one of the Must Visit tourist attractions. Beautiful castle surrounded by beautiful scenery..

That's it, this is my first Skye trip, I think I shall be back again, to complete the hiking bits!

The second day 18.09.2010
 Seems like it was going to be a nice sunny day, but the sun just playing hide and seek after that. We decided to cancel our hiking trip as the weather didn't seems promising. Alternatively, we went to visit the Dunvegan Castle and Garden.
Dunvegan Castle:  The oldest continuously inhabited castle in Scotland and ancestral home of the chiefs of clan MacLeod for 800 years.

There are seals outside the castle.
