When we arrived the weather was perfect so we broke out the BBQ and enjoyed a lovely evening in the sun, but things changed about an hour after we went to bed when the strongest winds we've ever encountered hit meaning sleep was hard to come by. The only thing I can liken the experience to is being trapped inside a washing machine on the spin cycle. Still, at least we were in Delores - come morning there were lots of bleary eyed campers and a few flattened tents. As the forecast wasn't great we decided to head off and return to the Cuillins later.
We opted for a tour of the island ultimately ending in Staffin at another campsite we had our eye on. Along the way we visited Sligachan hotel for lunch before taking in Kilt Rock and assorted waterfalls.

All of which brings us to today. We continued on our route around the island (along with several hundred other people - gorgeous though it is the coast road around Skye is rather like an episode of Wacky Racers at times). We explored castles, ports and beautiful bays - we heard a corncrake, possibly spotted an eagle and watched a pod of dolphins from afar as the made their way across the bay.
