Stuck in the middle of the longest Wednesday ever, with back to back meetings (some very exciting but some less so!) - dreaming of long dog walks on my favourite beach #Timsgarry #Uig #IsleofLewis #OuterHebrides #visituig #uigsands #daydreaming #visitouterhebrides

Day 5 (Trotternish) - A little inland from Uig was our final stop of the day at Balnaknock (or Balnacnoc) and the Fairy Glen, aka the mini-Quirang. At this point we hadn't been to the Quirang, so this was a little taster beforehand! Btw, the Fairy Glen (Trotternish) has nothing to do with the Fairy Pools (Minginish) or the Fairy Bridge (Duirinish), they are all completely seperate places on Skye. If you're looking for some legend or mystical tale as to why it is known as the Fairy Glen, you in for a disappointment because there really isn't any. It's simply that this unusual mini landscape of round topped grassy hills and lochans has a somewhat otherworldy feel to it...which does make sense when you're actually there, though my pictures in the wet and gloomy conditions don't really convey it. We'd had a pretty dry day weather wise until we arrived here in the last hour of daylight, and then the weather closed in and it chucked it down, thus maintaining the record of it having rained every day of the holiday! As usual when it comes to sheer drops and great heights, our dog Howie has to be saved from himself. Birds flying at or below his eyeline fascinate him greatly and i'm genuinely not convinced that he fully understands that he cannot fly like them! He really seemed to enjoy the Fairy Glen and he got to have a nice runaround as the one advanatge of visting in the pouring rain in the last hour of daylight in late October on a Thursday is that you pretty much get the place to yourself! #fairyglen #balnaknock #balnacnoc #uig #trotternish #trotternishpeninsula #isleofskyescotland #highland

Day 5 (Trotternish) - A bit further south still from Kilvaxter on the Western coastline of the Trotternish peninsula is Uig, one a my favourite UK place names! I believe it's pronounced "oo-ig" rather than "you-ig", but don't take my word for it as I pronounced Sleat ("Slate" not "Sleet") and Cuillin (more "Coo-lin" than "Cull-in") wrong the entire time I was on Skye! Apparently the Uig name derives from the Old Norse "vik" meaning "bay". Wick up in the extreme north east of Scotland is a far more obvious derivative, but i'll take Wikipedia's word for it! This body of water is called Uig Bay, which I guess therefore means "Bay Bay"?! This Uig is not to be confused with another Uig on Lewis in the Outer Hebridies and a similarly wonderfully named place called Uiginish also on Skye further south in the Duirinish parish. By the way the -nish ending, so common to places, parishes and peninsulas on Skye means 'promontory' (ie a raised mass of land projecting into a body of water) - so sadly 'Uiginish' doesn't mean "Quite Uiggy", which is a shame! I digress...pictured here is the Uig ferry terminal, which itself may be charitably described as 'functional' rather than a thing of great beauty itself, but the wider setting in which it's located is lovely. There's an active fishing and seafood export industry based here too. This was something of a recce for us as we intend to come back to sail from here to the Outer Hebridies sometime in the next year or two. The crossing from here to Tarbet on Harris seems to be the shortest possible ferry crossing to the Outer Hebridies, and, as we like to minimise our time on the water when leaving our dog during the crossing, it's very likely where we'll go from here. It also helps we really want to go to Harris in particular! You can also sail from here directly to North Uist as well. As well as the port, Uig also has a pottery, Skye brewery outlet, petrol station and cafe, a hotel, pubs, shops, churches...and around 300 residents which serve to make Uig the bustling metropolis of Trotternish...well maybe not quite, but it is the largest settlement on the peninsula! #uig #trotternish #isleofskyescotland #uigport #highland

If you've been to Stornoway, you've seen the Highland Bull sculpture 🐂 He's carved from wood and sits outside the local supermarket. There's a park opposite which has lots of farm animals made from wood and brass that you can play on (and I did). Stornoway is a bigger town that I thought it would be and absolutely did not disappoint. So many local art initiatives and a town proud of their history. I also went to a lovely local cafe called Kopi Java which had super delicious treats ☕ #highlandbull #highlandcow #stornoway #wood #sculpture #outerhebrides #scotland #selfie #kopijava #eileansiar #islands #port #art #sculpture #uig #isleoflewis #lewisandharris #placesforyoutovisit #nature #islandhopping #passionpassport #scotland_insta #gaelic #travelgram #traveling #solofemaletraveler #solotravel #traveladdictsuk #lovetheouterhebrides #absolutelyenroute

Our fabulous cottage really was the village post office! #Timsgarry #Uig #IsleofLewis . Mam & Dad were Post Master & Mistress right up until the mid 1990’s - when there was still such thing as a #postbus (who remembers them?) . (Pictures are scanned from an old family album - taken about 1995) . #selfcateringcottage #visituig #familyhome #familyhistory #timsgarryoldpostoffice #outerhebrides #visitouterhebrides
