We continued our exploration of Isle skye and it seemed that the fairies had granted my wishes …. no more rain !
We found a museum about fossils on our way, the Staffin Museum, and we decided to stop for a bit, entry was ridiculously cheap and it sounded interesting.
Skye is the best place in Scotland to find fossils from the Jurassic period. In the museum, you can learn and know more about the famous 170-million-year-old dinosaur footprints that were discovered by the museum curator and one of his friend in 2002. You can also find other dinosaur footprints, septarian nodules and fossils.
Nearby, there was this bus stop ! Is it me or this is not straight ? :D I’m sure there is a reason for that but I can’t really figure that out.
It was difficult to find food on that part of the peninsula, so we decided not to be picky and stopped at the first place we saw, the High Tide restaurant in Flodigarry. That was good but portions were really small and a bit pricey, I recommend you to bring lunch with you.
The weather was definitively better and we were very excited to continue our visit ! We stopped at different viewpoint to admire the dramatic landscape, the beautiful coast and the interesting rock formations.
Our next stop was the Old man of Storr. We did the hike through these spectacular geological formations. This was though for me but we were rewarded by a beautiful view over the valley. It was one of the best hikes we did these last few days and my favourite place on Isle of Skye.
After such a difficult hike, we deserved some food ! We went to Portree, to the Caledonian Cafe, and had supper and it was quite good.
In the evening, we tried to get to Nest Point but it was too foggy and it was raining too much to be able to see anything.
