We went for a wee drive . . .

. . . and spent the night in Portree!

After a not-so-good Christmas and an un-eventful New Year we decided that Bank Holiday Monday we should do something.

So we planned to drive to Fort William and perhaps go to Mallaig via Arisaig.

But instead we drove to Fort William, kept going till we got to Kyle of Lochalsh.

As we got that far we thought we might as well go over the Skye Bridge, quickly realising it was getting dark so best find somewhere to stay for the night.

Our journey finally ended in Portree. 234 miles and quite a few hours later!

We found a room at The Isles Inn where we got some lovely dinner and a welcome bed for the night.

Tuesday morning started with a good cooked breakfast ahead of our epic, but slightly shorter drive home at 210 miles.

Here are a few pictures of our adventure:
