Mountainear's Avatar And? Did you have a lovely time? Your photograph is beautiful.

Faith's Avatar Thanks Mountainear. It was rather tedious much of the time, I'm afraid. Skye is beautiful in places, but not all of it, in my opinion. Better not say more as this may be read by anyone. I might do a homework about the pros and cons of holidaying with friends......

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar Oo-er, Faith - we have spent the last thirty years holidaying with friends. I may have to go into hiding . . .

Blackbird's Avatar Welcome back Faith. What a gorgeous silvery landscape but it looks like the dead of winter. I hope you had a little spring there.

Faith's Avatar Yes thanks Ivy - spring on Skye was further advanced than spring here at home.

Fennie's Avatar Never been to Skye. But the western highlands and islands have always seemed sad, lonely and inhospitable places most of the time. Especially if you are brought up in Southern England. What's that lovely phrase of Dylan Thomas' "Where the gulls go to be lonely." Not so bad if the sun shines.Very Happy

Ivy's Avatar I was on Skye (for a day) last summer and found it totally overrun by tourists. April is certainly a calmer time of the year. I was a bit annoyed about the "bonnie Prince Charlie hype " they did for the tourists. I enjoyed the mainland much more.

Fairy Nuff's Avatar Avoid the tourist spots and go for the scenery I'd say, but since we have out of season holidays we have the place to ourselves with just locals for companyVery Happy

Fairy Nuff's Avatar p.s. and head for the southern half of the island...unless you like the bleaker moorlands.

Fairy Nuff's Avatar Actually as much as I like my friends I can't imagine going on holiday with any of themShocked

Ivy's Avatar From this summer onwards I will NEVER ever have to bear school holidays in mind ( only to avoid the rush perhaps!) when planning a journey!Very Happy

Withy Brook's Avatar There was a wonderful writer who sent her main character from the south of England to live on a Hebridean Island. I have always particutlarly loved the comment in the letter that attracted the lady to the island - "even the sheeps on the hills is lonely"
