Scotland Road Trip 14.8.13

"Woke up at my friends house. It was nice to sleep indoors. Had a fry up then left for serious hike up the Old Man of Storr. The serious hike we imagined came to an abrupt end because we reached the top pretty quickly. The views were incredible but we were slightly disappointed with the short walk...until we found a sign that said do not go past this sign. So we went past the sign. The less trodden paths took us round the different side of the hill. Pure bute.
"After our walk we had time for lunch so we drove to Carboost to the 3 chimney's restaurant. The restaurant was WAY more posh than we had imagined it would be and luckily they did not have a dress code as we rocked in with mucky hiking boots, hoodies and were somewhat sweaty. The waiters were wearing suits. It was awkward. The posh lady behind who sent her food back because of an out of place salad leave kept giving us the stink eye. Despite this, the food was amazing but we left thinking that perhaps posh restaurants don't suit out characters, or dress sense. We headed back to my friends house then took her wee girl to the beach in Staffin. I took a few shells. We then got drunk and slept. Skye is epic"


The old man of storr is a beautiful walk with stunning views so defiantly worth a visit. its busy so better to go earlier on in the day.
The Three Chimneys
This restaurant is recommended all over the place, personally it wasn't my cup of tea, its very up market. But if you enjoy a posh bite to eat, and i have to admit the food was good, then make sure you have a reservation and DO NOT go in wearing mucky clothes to avoid posh lady stink eye.
