Four-wheel frustration

I promised an update on our adventures in Skye recently, but unfortunately the adventures were not the kind I had hoped for. We had car trouble from our arrival in Portree last Friday, so instead of heading down to the Raasay ferry on the Saturday, we spent the day around Portree in the rain.

On the Sunday, rather than cycling around the Trotternish peninsula, we waited for the local garage (on behalf of the AA) to come and pick us up and take us back to Inverness with our car on the back of a low loader!

After getting it fixed, we had more problems last weekend which ended our plans for an epic cycle on Sunday, too. We did get out on the bikes, though, and enjoyed a spin from home around to Loch Ruthven on south Loch Ness-side in the rain and cloud.

Here’s hoping for more luck (and a new car!) this weekend.
