My adult daughter is in Aberdeen for an internship for a few months, and I'll be visiting her mid-Aug. After spending the weekend with her in Aberdeen, Monday morning I'm renting a car and heading to Ft. William for the night, should have time for a hike. Tues. I'll be ferrying onto Skye, stopping here and there for sights and a walk/short hike on my way to Staffin. I'll hike and explore up that way on Wed., and I thought I'd have another day on Skye, but just found out DD has Thurs-Fri. off. Here's where the next several days are being revised. Maybe on Thurs. morning she could train into Kyle of Lochalsh (should be scenic), picking her up at the station about 1:30 pm (hoping I can drive comfortably there from Staffin by then), we could tour nearby Eilean Donan castle (we like castles, as well as prehistoric sights such as standing stones,but beautiful natural scenery and hiking are the top priority), and stay somewhere within an hour or so. Then we have Friday free (go up to Aviemore or Grantown on Spey or other place for some hiking/scenery and the night?), plan to end up Saturday morning at the Lonach Highland Games Aug. 23. Sunday we'll be seeing the sights and visiting friends on our way back to Aberdeen. Any comments or suggestions?
