No matter, we've got one more day, and we've decided to sort of potter about the island, and see what there is to see.
Well. First we went to have a looksee what a Broch is by stopping in a small carpark nearby and taking a short walk up to Dun Beag Broch. The notice board described it as a fortified roundhouse, probably built 2-300 yrs BC. We thought it was impressive.
|Alright, it just looks like a pile of rocks, but this pile of rocks was put together very neatly around 2300 yrs ago.|
|Steps, tunnel and little 'rooms' still remain. Awesome.|
A drive by of Dunvegan Castle proved it was not somewhere for us. It looks stunning outside on the water, and trips to see seal and bird colonies might be interesting, but we decided we didn't want to go in the castle itself or visit the gardens.
We made a pit stop to see the Kilt Rock Waterfall.
|Kilt rock was formed by slowly cooling lava. It's said to resemble a kilt, the pillars looking like pleats.|

Just brilliant. Definitely worth the visit.
And that's it. That's the end of our holiday. But it has been brilliant. The rain stayed away, and we've really, really enjoyed our visit and the fantastic views and sights.
I think we'll be back in a few years time, Peter has his eye on Sgurr Alisdair.................
