We went on an adventure yesterday to the Isle of Skye, an island off the west coast of Scotland. The day was beautiful; hardly a cloud in the sky, a rarity around here so we took advantage of the opportunity. Angus (the pastor of the church we're working with) was our tour guide; his family is from Skye and he grew up there for part of his childhood so he knows the area well. Dornoch is on the east coast, so we started by driving south and west to the other coast of Scotland.
It was an awesome day. The temperature started out at -8 C (17 F) in Dornoch and so much frost was on the ground it looked like snow; but it was considerably warmer in Skye. Maybe just above freezing? We saw some beautiful sites, it was incredible. Pictures are never as good as being there, but maybe they'll give you an idea of how great it is!
We took a short hike to the top of this hill. It didn't take long, but it was so steep!
View from the top.
Can you believe we actually fit through those rocks?
They say the middle top part looks like a Kilt, hard to tell from far away.
Today I got to see a little slice of heaven.
