    Decided to head to Skye, seeing as I hadn’t visited the island this year and the weather at the moment is being very kind to us locals i.e it’s not snowing or freezing. Nice and dry & sunny at home, but as I got nearer to Inverness and Loch Ness, the cloud cover became complete, as can be seen...
