Day 936: Highland Cow, Eilean Donan Castle, Bagpiper, Loch Carron, Kyle of Lochalsh & Broadford!

OK I think I am gonna do a list because there is just too much to cover!

So here's all that I loved today in Scotland!

a) Getting to take a picture of the super lovely and cute highland cows!! This is something I had been wanting to do for a few days now. These adorable little darlings appear on the roadsides but very rarely only and usually we don't get to take a snap as there wouldn't be a parking space nearby. But today, finally I spotted them inside a farm next to a cafe and got the husband to take a quick turn in there. And I got my pictures of the super duper adorable. pull-the-cheeks highland cattle! Sigh! So cute!

b) The stopover at the prettiest castle of all, the Eilean Donan Castle, perched right at the edge of a beautiful lake. I loved the beauty of the castle and its surroundings, as well as the nice little non-guided tour we took inside the castle on our own.

c) Listening to live bagpipe music right in front of the Eilean Donan Castle played by a Scott in a kilt.

d) Stopover at the fishing village of Plockton for lunch.

e) Spending time sitting on the grass and taking in the views of the gorgeous Loch Carron.

f) Our journey from Inverness to the Kyle of Lochalsh including sighting the beautiful bridge that connects the beautiful Isle of Skye to the rest of the island.

g) Our lovely room at the Dunedin B&B in Broadford, Isle of Skye, which had a beautiful view of the ocean right across and the highlands beyond.

h) Our first Indian meal after we got to Scotland, for dinner. It was good to get some spices in after so many days!

i) The lovely Red Skye restaurant with the very motherly owner, where we had the yummiest toffee pudding and chocolate brownies with vanilla ice cream! 

A very packed day, too many details, but I will leave it at that! The pointers above and the tons of photos I have should help me remember the details for a long while to come! 

64 more to go.
