Ok so maybe I might have slightly misjudged the amount of time it took us to get home. The tripadvisor website said perhaps 5 hours max to get from Portree back to Aberdeen. The truth of the matter was it took us quite a bit longer .... a whole day of driving later we have decided to be a bit more cautious with our route plans in the future.
The good news us we saw another day full of amazing sights - We again went through the barren Isle of Skye through along a road full of Lochs and waterfalls ..... up through a ski resort and then home through dozens of pretty little villages.
How amazing is it that I can see all of this within a days drive.
So back at work for another week ..... my apologies for the delay in getting this posted but unfortunately my work computer has the battery life of a kids toy ....
