January 4th - Portree, Isle of Skye

Woke up to ice everywhere - rain overnight turned Portree into a skating rink. Our car was still stuck on the ice at the restaurant we ate at lat night and no one seemed in much of a hurry to get us out - seems like they do the main roads and then the secondary etc....At any rate we took bags of dirt and carried them up the hill to the car until we had enough to get out - around noon - but we did get the car out.

Managed one short trip this afternoon but got caught in sleet which turned to heavy snow at the higher altitudes but did manage to find a few images for capture.

The waterfall was in Portree hidden back in the woods - noticed it as we were hauling sand up to the car - the mountain range is called Glamaig which is just south of Portree. One problem you encounter this time of year is access to small roads so most captures are done from roadside parking areas - of which there are many in this part of the world.

So the adventure continues tomorrow as we drive the 113 miles to Inverness - possibly a date with the monster....who knows...And did I mention there is snow everywhere in these parts - I guess thats why they call it the highlands....Never saw any snow in Braveheart - what's up with that.
