Trickiest thing about this walk is probably finding a parking space. We got a few funny looks from various tourists as we headed south from the car park for the Quiraing instead of north - our target this afternoon was Bioda Buidhe, close by on the Trotternish ridge. The walk was straightforward apart from the incredibly strong wind (the kind that disfigures your face) and high temperatures... mid-twenties! The views of the Quiraing from here are arguably better than from the tourist path in the opposite direction. The out-of-place peak of Cleat was another highlight, as was the lack of bog after our experiences earlier the same day. Anyway, a few photos:











Tired feet, buffeted by the wind... in other words, a lovely way to end our last full day on Skye this summer.
