We’re definitely into the highlight reel now. Sunsets and sunrises are cinematic here, though the sky strangely turns gray for much of the main part of the day. We had an amazing view of Loch Pooltiel and purple-colored islands in the distance from the dining room of Carters Rest guest house, our home base on the Isle of Skye. The proprietors Betty and Freddie — possibly the nicest people in the universe — cooked up chicken soup, a succulent pork chop and bread and butter pudding for about $25 a person. After dinner, we took a walk down to the jetty and marveled at the amazing view that the grazing sheep get to enjoy every day. One of the other couples in the guest house had just gotten engaged at the lighthouse nearby. I could see why. Everything was perfect right then — dramatic lighting, a strong wind, and silence all around.
