Day 28 : Broadford to Broadford (85.6 miles) around Skye

Day 28 complete – and still it rains. Poured down all last night and have had frequent heavy showers all day.

We are staying 2 nights at the Camping Skye site at Broadford so Matt could cycle round the island today. He did 85.6 miles with 1598m climbing.

Left at 9.20am and cycled to Sligachan, then A863 to Dunvegan, A850 to Borve then the A87 through Portree and back to Broadford arriving at 4.15pm.

Steve and I drove to Portree which is 25 miles from the campsite – a lovely little town with some unique shops and a very pretty harbour.

Fortunately the rain stopped long enough for us to walk round in the dry which made a change. Some stunning scenery on the drive with mountains and lochs. Would definitely like to return to see more.

Pretty chilly today.
