Got up at 8 in the morning and left the hostel by 9:30 am. This day was entirely dedicated to Isle of Skye. Our first destination was Eilean Donan Castle. Scotland is filled with castles and distilleries. We could not get a distillery tour due to shortage of time but the castle was AMAZING. The history was depicted wonderfully and the castle was meticulously maintained. I could click some pictures outside but sadly photography was prohibited inside. The bedrooms, kitchen, etc. was nicely depicted to potray the living style of the Royal family.
Our next stop was an underwater boat trip. It was basically a boat with a tube under it which remains under the water. For people like me who cant swim, this was a great opportunity to see the underwater life of the ocean. Sadly, the pics dont come out great as my phone cam was struggling to focus and capture under water! The boat had an upper deck too and we did spot many seals lazying around.
Finally we set of to Quiraing which is a hill based on the top most region of UK. The drive to the top was amazing. If you see the route below, you can see we covered the whole of Isle of Skye bordering the coast. We parked our car and stood for some time in the top point, but it was so damn windy that I could not even take my phone out for a pic. When we were sitting in the car, the wind was even shaking the BMW!
Yes, we do see some of these too -
With these activities, we returned to the hotel and ended our day. Day 4:
The last day was uneventful since it was just a long trip back home. However, on the way, we stopped at Quadmania to do some Quad biking in the mountains, as can be seen in the first post of this thread. It was a thrilling experience.
After a lot of driving in the twisty and narrow mountain roads, we finally reached the M6 which would take us home in speed-
Time to return the car... Holding a BMW key in my hand will always be a special moment for me-

Thank you. Yes, we do see some Skodas in here, though they are not the most popular in Europe. VW, Nissan, Ford, Vauxhall, Mini and Peugot dominates the market. Of course, BMW, Audi, Land Rover and Mini are in plenty too.
