After a marathon 13 hour drive we arrived on the Isle of Skye in rain of biblical proportions, with water literally pouring off the hillside.
The weather then cleared later that night long enough for a brief glimpse of The Northern Lights!
Today, after a wet start the weather broke for a trip to Glen Brittle Forest which lies in the shadows of the Black Cullin ridge.
The forest has a network of tracks and trails, interlaced with streams and waterfalls and giving dramatic views of the nearby mountains and Loch Eynont.
Carbost, our base, is a small village on the Mingish peninsula boasting The Talisker distillery, a pub and a shop and fronts Loch Harport. It also has a wonderful local Oyster Shed selling shellfish and smoked salmon.
Weather permitting viewing the local wildlife, sea eagles and otters is on the agenda, along with testing out the Cokin Nuance ND filter supplied by Intro2020.
