Scotland Day 9 - Isle of Skye [08:00]
After Eilean Donan Castle, we crossed the bridge to the Isle of Skye for still more unimaginably fabulous scenery. We stayed just outside the village of Portree, and headed out from there to the northernmost tip of the island. Stopped for lunch at the Flodigarry House Hotel, then around the peninsula to the village of Uig. We stopped at the grave of Flora MacDonald (who helped Bonnie Prince Charlie escape after the failed Jacobite Rising of 1745-46) and then ventured into the rocky crags of the Quirang. Next morning we stopped at the Talisker Distillery where Ann sampled the wares, and then we found our way to the Faerie Pools before heading down the road to Fort William.
Things Canadians Do - ice fishing Jack (& a brief history of Scotland) [06:30]
Another day, got a couple northern pike (Jackfish), the life of an ice fisherman is hard, I set up my shanty as an office away from the office. Big crack in the ice. Micky reports in from the Isle of Islay in Scotland, and by chance Badger also reports back from Scotland. Learning about Scottish history and ice fishing go hand in hand.
Walk To Meet Scottish Clydesdale Horses Fife Scotland [02:19]
Tour Scotland video of a wee walk up a farm road to meet some Scottish Clydesdale horses on visit to North Fife near St Andrews. The Clydesdale is a breed of draught horse derived from the farm horses of Clydesdale, Scotland, and named after that region. The breed was developed from Flemish stallions imported to Scotland and crossed with local mares. The first recorded use of the name "Clydesdale" for the breed was in 1826, and by 1830 a system of hiring stallions had begun that resulted in the spread of Clydesdale horses throughout Scotland and into northern England. The first breed registry was formed in 1877. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, thousands of Clydesdales were exported from Scotland and sent throughout the world, including to Australia and New Zealand, where they became known as " the breed that built Australia ".
