Weekend Postcard: the Isle of Skye, Scotland

This weekend’s postcard was taken by Gemma & Craig of the blog Two Scots Abroad during their trip to the Isle of Skye, Scotland. I thought this photo was pretty funny (and quite creative!) and was intrigued – while I’ve heard Scotland is gorgeous, I don’t know much about the country and was excited to learn what these two were up to!

Weekend Postcard: Skye, Scotland

Dear Anna,

I’ve never seen stars like it! I can breathe properly in Skye. It took us two hours to walk to the nearest pub; the hostel owner blamed it on the way ‘us city people’ walk. Glad we brought the car as it meant we could lunch in Portree and visit the haunted Dunvegan Castle. Going to hike ‘The Storr’ tomorrow, after a few drinks in Skyewalker hostel’s Crystal Maze like conservatory this evening. Come to Scotland!

My curiosity was piqued at the mention of a haunted castle and this hostel, so I turned to Google to find out more. Apparently the castle is home to a flag that the queen of fairies gave to the residents in return for a favor, and if they ever need help they just need to wave it and fairies will flock to assist. Pretty cool!

And as for the aforementioned hostel, this place just sounds awesome. It has a glass solar dome where you can stargaze and possibly even catch the Northern Lights.

  • Looks immense Anna! When I was in the castle, I bought my Gran a postcard and bizarrely she texted me at that moment (she rarely texts). What’s doubly bizarre is, she meant to text my brother (she had said happy birthday to him, it was his birthday, but for some reason she had our numbers saved incorrectly, typical Gran behaviour!) So there is something ‘fairy’ spooky going on in there.
