Travel Fantasy: Isle of Skye, Scotland

Thursday, August 2, 2012
Have you ever been to Scotland? Last year our friend Sara and her husband took a three week vacation to the 'cloudy island' aka Isle of Skye. It’s a 50 mile island of amazing sea cliffs, velvet moors, the freshest seafood, beautiful little villages and endless mountains. Those photographs totally take me back to Sara’s stories of early morning barefoot walks, drop scones breakfasts, fishing trips with the locals and sitting on the edge of cliffs at dusk and pinching each other because as she said, they couldn’t believe such beautiful places exist. Le sigh, shall we pack? xo

P.S: Remember this tree house?
P.P.S: Plus, more wanderlust:)

Hi! Yes, it's beautiful! I spent some weeks in Scotland, the landscapes are incredible, the people are very friendly and they have many music bands that I love! Just remember it can rain and be windy at the same time.

How the heck do you get the photographer from the first photo?! I've had it forever saved on my desktop but couldn't for the life of me find the photographer so I never used it. So impressed!!!

You know me and Scotland- after spending a summer there it's basically my homeland. I love that place, especially the Highlands. sigh.

How lovely, Eliza. I want to pack my bags right now too. This place is simply dreamy.

Diana Mieczan said...

So true, Marta. My friend, Sara said the same thing. It can rain at any time and the sky looks amazing and has the coolest colours just before and just after the rain.

How fun that you lived in Scotland, holtkamp:) I just told Balazs last night that we should move there for a year:) I crave the endless views so much.

Diana Mieczan said...

Those purple trees make me think I'll see a fairy tucked into the landscape somewhere... ohhhh. pretty.

Ok, so I've been planning a week long trip to London for September, and reading your blog just had me going on an hour long Googling tangent to see how I could incorporate a visit to this place on that trip! Those photos are so incredible! I'm definitely going to plan a trip there someday, even if this year doesn't work out!

Scotland is definitely a magical place. I would love to visit one day!

Sara said...

I was lucky enough to live in Scotland for a year while I attended grad school and it is an absolutely gorgeous place with the kindest people, best food and most stunning scenery. GO.

Dominika said...

Hard to believe this is real. But it is indeed... :)

Diana Mieczan said...

holtkamp, really? That is so cool:) We could meet up for coffees if we both lived there:)

Diana Mieczan said...

addy, have the best time in London and let me know if you managed to visit this spot as well:) xo

I have been wanting to go for corryvreckan cruises. The scenery is nice and I love nature. I have read a lot on the place. It has a wildlife that's worth checking out too.
