The Isle of Skye, folks.  Somewhere I’d always read about, never thought I’d actually go!

Like I’m going to go that far and not take photos of insects.  A syrphid fly:

  1. It looks very beautiful but I hear it is now very crowded, was that your experience?

  2. I would agree that it’s quite crowded, compared to what its capacity is. In the more popular hikes that we went on, it was difficult to find parking at the (relatively small) parking lots; and the one lane roads were not really capable of handling the two-way traffic to these spots. I understand that they are planning to improve the facilities at some of these locations.

    However, it’s also true that it’s not difficult to find areas and hikes that are not that busy. We were the only hikers at a few of the places we went to.

    The environmental impact is a tough call. I do realize that there it is possible that the environment is being over-stressed by the tourism (https://www.cnn.com/travel/article/places-to-avoid-2018/index.html). I do think that this is definitely true for the most popular hikes (for example, the Fairy Pools hike).

    I would also like to add that we did not know in advance about the public transport from Portree to the local spots on the Isle. If we were to visit again, it’s possible we would stay in Portree and use the buses more.

  3. Wat een prachtige fossielen heb je gevonden
