Our journey included two ferry trips, which helped break up the car ride and make things more fun and interesting.

Even the drive itself was exciting (if a bit nerve-wracking), with much of it spent on single-track roads off the beaten path, mostly driven by locals who don’t care to slow down much on roads with lots of blind curves. Here’s a close encounter with a different kind of local:

We’re now settled into our Airbnb in Tobermory, an unbelievably charming harbor town (way more so than Portree on Skye). We can’t wait to explore it!
