Scotland: Day 3 - Isle of Skye to Loch Ness
After a delayed start to our day.... (this goes with the story I was talking about in my last post) we set off to explore the Isle of Skye! We stopped at the Sligachan River where it is said you can gain eternal youth by putting your face in the water for 7 seconds (naturally, I did it), we also went to the wishing falls where you must put water in your mouth from the top of the falls and spit it out at a rock at the bottom of the falls while making a wish and your wish will come true! We ate lunch in Portree, the capital of the Isle of Skye, and 3 girls and I hiked up to the watchtower where we saw more amazing views, I tried some official scottish shortbread, we went to the battle grounds of the battle of Glenshiel, saw "loch arctic", and ended the night at Morag's Hostel in Loch Ness where we got a real demonstration of how to fold a kilt (Mel Gibson's exact Kilt from Braveheart actually).
