I’m making the 11 hour drive up to Uig, Isle of Skye today, and then catching the ferry out to the Isles of Harris and Lewis. While I’ve been to Skye numerous times in the past years, my last visit to the Outer Hebrides was in October 2003. I had intended to go last year at this time, but I ended up elsewhere. I only have a week, but I’m sure I’ll get my fill of stormy windswept beaches to last me for the next few months. Hopefully it doesn’t rain the whole time, as it very well could, but it’s a risk worth taking.
