A quick update: having left Colonsay, we 'hightailed' it from Oban up to Skye, with a short stopover in Fort William to buy an eBike battery charger from the ever-reliable Nevis Bike shop.
We arrived in Skye about ten minutes before our friends, Derek and Phil, whom we had arranged to meet up with, as they were still travelling back to their rented cottage from the fabled "fairy pools". After a fond reunion, a forced separation due to Covid, we walked into Broadford and had a fabulous meal in a great local restaurant called The Claymore. It was then back to the cottage for several more libations and a late-night chat!
We woke bleary-eyed and still tired from the lack of sleep as our hosts had to be out of the cottage by 10:00. A quick coffee, and we were outside saying 'thanks and looking forward to seeing you again!'
We have had a few beautiful nights since in the south of the island and have been blessed with warm weather and calm sunny days. This mild weather has provided us with fantastic sunsets and sunrises, and the forecast is 'set fair' for the next week. The only blip on the horizon is that the notorious "midges" have made their annual appearance over the last day or so. This turn of events heralds the arrival of the female of the species who are the ones who bite!

That ‘tired’ old sun!
