Even in the light rain you can see the waves of mountains, row upon row. We crossed the bridge to the Isle of Skye from Kyle of Lochalsh, but a curtain of cloud came down, obscuring our views.
It is fascinating to me how quickly weather changes in this part of the world. It can be sunny in one spot with cloud cover just a short way off and rain.
This can result in lots of rainbows.
We went to see Eilean Donan Castle which is supposed to be the most photogenic castle in Scotland, but cloud obscured the mountains behind.
But sometimes it is nice to see these venues cloaked in mystery. It is easier to picture the events of the past, their echoes in the mist.
